The ATP Tour fined Australia's Nick Kyrgios $12,500 Thursday as it launched an investigation into an insulting comment he made during a Rogers Cup tennis match against French Open champion Stan Wawrinka.Kyrgios said that the woman had been involved with his close friend Thanasi Kokkinakis.The ATP said that the probe could result in further sanctions against Kyrgios.Wawrinka, who separated from his wife earlier this year and has been linked to Croatian tour player Donna Vekic, said the ATP should take "major action this time".Kyrgios' insult rocked the sport and the criticism has come from all directions, including world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.The Scot took a softer line to Kyrgios than Djokovic.Isner, who conquered Kyrgios, will play Frenchman Jeremy Chardy who overcame Ivo Karlovic 4-6, 7-6 (7/1), 6-4 after the Croatian had passed the 10,000-ace career mark in his win in the previous round.U.S. Open finalist Kei Nishikori of Japan, seeded fourth, beat Belgian David Goffin 6-4, 6-4, winning with ten aces.
