The Men’s governing body has said Tennis officials will hand out stricter punishments for on-court misconduct.

ATP chairman Andrea Gaudenzi said effective immediately and as they head into the clay court swing, the ATP officiating team has been directed to take a stricter stance in judging violations of the code of conduct

He added that they were also undertaking a review of the code, as well as the disciplinary processes, to ensure that it provides appropriate and up-to-date penalties for serious violations and repeat offenders.

Australian Nick Kyrgios was fined a total of 60,000 dollars after the 26-year-old’s outbursts at Indian Wells and the Miami Open earlier this year. German Alexander Zverev was also thrown out of the Mexican Open after hitting the umpire’s chair with his racquet.
