Nick Kyrgios Goes Full Nick Kyrgios, Destroys Racquets, Appears To Spits Toward A Chair Umpire
He's gone big
Nick Kyrgios has had a shocker at the Cincinnati Masters today, destroying racquets and appearing to spit towards an ump on the way to a second round loss.
Kyrgios fell apart in the second set after chair umpire Fergus Murphy gave him a time violation warning for taking too long between serves.
In the third set he copped a code violation for calling Murphy “the worst f**king referee ever” and then stormed off to the bathroom to smash a couple of racquets to try and avoid violations for doing so.
The meltdown continued after Kyrgios lost the match 6-7, 7-6, 6-2, with him calling the umpire a “f**king tool” and spitting in his direction on the way off.
Kyrgios will almost certainly be fined and possibly suspended for his behaviour.
