Aussie bad boy Nick Kyrgios has escaped a fine that could have potentially triggered a 28-day ban after receiving a code violation during his three-set loss to Japan's Kei Nishikori at the Shanghai Masters.

Kyrgios was censured by chair umpire Mohamed Layhani for unsportsmanlike conduct during the match, after forcing a line judge to jump out of the way when the volatile Aussie struck a ball down the middle of the court after being called for a fault late in the second set.

He later said he didn't think the line judge was in danger of being hit, but added: "Obviously it was pretty close to the line umpire. I probably shouldn't have done it. But I didn't think it was too bad," Kyrgios said.

The news was better for fellow Aussie Bernard Tomic - he progressed to a fourth-round match-up against Frenchman Richard Gasquet after knocking out seventh seed David Ferrer 6-4 6-2.
