Channel 7’s call of last night’s Kyrgios match has been criticised for not “calling it as it was”.
Triple M’s Brian Taylor tweeted that no one prepared to criticise Kyrgios for his meltdown.
Jim Courier left the box late in the fifth set to prepare for his post-match on-court interview.
Lleyton Hewitt, who captains Kyrgios in the Davis Cup, and Basil Zempilas were left with the calling duties.
“Kyrgios, what the hell,” Taylor tweeted.
“Courier was about to cut loose, then required courtside. Hewitt bit his tongue, no one left to call it as it was.”
