Kyrgios, 27, will face trial in person on this day for the first time since police issued a summons to him in July.

The usual charge of assault, which can carry a maximum sentence of two years in prison, relates to an incident in January 2021 that was reported to local police last December. The charge is reportedly related to an incident with his ex-girlfriend.
