It took just 12 minutes for Nick Kyrgios to kick things off at Wimbledon – smashing a ball out of court 3 after losing serve in the opening set of his clash with Paul Jubb.

The Aussie bad boy – who is known for getting carried away – went wild on Tuesday afternoon in his opening round match at Wimbledon against Britain’s world number 219.

Kyrgios had a heated argument with the chair umpire early in the first set over crowd noise before bursting after Jubb broke him to serve the set at 6-3.

Speaking to referee Marija Cicak, Kyrgios said: “You can’t decide to talk to me in the middle of the point when I’m about to do a backhand, it can’t happen bro.”

“They can watch tennis but talk and shout in the middle of the point, like why? I don’t know where it was.

The incident clearly threw Kyrgios off his game as he struggled for the form that followed him. The 27-year-old was under pressure as Jubb had another break opportunity at 3-4 and failed to keep his composure.

The Aussie fired his forehand into the net to give Jubb the break. Kyrgios then lost his temper and kicked a ball off the stadium pitch.

During the second set, Kyrgios told the chair umpire he heard “racial slurs” and criticized the crowd for booing him: ‘You should just take them out of the crowd.

“So is sheer disrespect from a spectator to an athlete acceptable at Wimbledon?” But you won’t accept a hat with two logos? When is the line? It’s okay, racism is okay so when does it stop? So where is the line?

‘It’s been going on for years. If they made racial slurs at him, I would say the same.

Kyrgios continued to lose his temper once again – calling a linesman a ‘snitch’ and insisting the female manager in question ‘had no fans’.

Expressing his frustration on Court 3, Kyrgios asked the chair umpire: “Has anyone come to see her today [the line judge] talk?’.

‘Nope. I understand, but why is she doing this? Nobody in the stadium came here to watch her do anything! Not a single person.

‘Like, you know what I mean? You have fans, but she doesn’t.

‘What did I do? Like, come on. I know, but what? She just selfishly walks up to you in the middle of a game because she’s a snitch!’.

Fans were clearly growing frustrated with Kyrgios’ actions and started booing the Australian tennis player, driving him away.

He fumed: “They [the fans] do not have the right to do so, why does this continue? You should remove them from the crowd. Boos are acceptable at Wimbledon? »

He added: “You have to tell them [to stop]. They are spectators. They have no right to do that. They are spectators who spend money to come and see us play. They must be deleted.

“I don’t go to their face in their 9-5 and start cheering when they scan shit in a supermarket. They have no right to do this, so why does this continue?

It’s not the first time that Kyrgios has attacked the pitch. The 2016 Australian Open was a bit of a disaster for Kyrgios.

He complained about the music, swore excessively and threw his racquet across the court in his loss to Tomas Berdych.

He then caused a scene at the 2019 Rogers Cup – after refusing to take part in his clash with Kyle Edmund until he was presented with a pristine new towel instead of a tournament branded towel.

In 2019, Kyrgios was also fined £17,000 after losing the plot to Norwegian Casper Ruud at the Italian Open. He threw a chair onto the field and kicked a bottle in an extraordinary explosion.

Kyrgios was also fined £98,904 for smashing two rackets and calling the chair umpire a ‘f**king tool’ at the Cincinnati Masters in 2019.

Kyrgios even made headlines for his antics off the pitch in 2019 – after being seen at the Dog & Fox Pub in Wimbledon until around 11 p.m. the day before his second-round match with Rafael Nadal.

Kyrgios was seen socializing with friends and chatting with girls at the pub on Wednesday night. He then crashed out of the tournament.

Therefore, his recent actions come as no surprise and it’s likely that we’ll see more outbursts from the Australian bay-boy over the next few days.
