It's the best of 5 set matches that Kyrgios loses concentration in.

Until he can snag some of those matches he's not officially back.

Having said that Davis Cup is best of 3 now right?
So may be handy... But we have other good players too without him now.

This guys fu**en gold. Comedy!!!!!


Fresh off winning the Citi Open in Washington DC two days ago, Nick Kyrgios began his Rogers Cup campaign in Toronto by absolutely melting down over not having the towel he wanted.

Playing England's Kyle Edmund, Kyrgios apparently asked the chair umpire for a specific towel just ahead of the match.

When he still didn't have the towel at a change of ends some time later, the Australian lost it, zeroing in on chair umpire Adel Nour.

"I can not leave the chair and go get you a towel," Nour told him, with Kyrgios responding: "you have a radio. You have a radio."

With his mind all over the place, Kyrgios was broken before the correct towels were eventually delivered.

"You couldn't radio the phyiso, 'hey I need a white towel? Physio I need a white towel."

Keeping his cool, Edmund held his nerve and served out the opening set in just 29 minutes.

Unsurprisingly, Kyrgios was hit with a code violation for the back and forth.

Can’t believe it took this long for the umpire to issue him with a code violation. #CoupeRogers #NickKyrgios

Kyrgios was still fuming in between sets and after a few drops of rain appeared in the skies, he asked Adel to get down from his chair and make sure the court was still safe to play on.

Not long afterwards, Kyrgios faked an underarm serve attempt, but Edmund saw it coming and the Aussie saved a couple of break points to stay on serve.

Just to add to the drama, rain became heavier at 4-4 in the second set and play was suspended.

Even then, Kyrigos was still angry about the towel situation, mentioning it again to Nour.

Kyrgios' towel meltdown comes just two days after he claimed the Washington Open, later saying he had "made great strides" during one of the best weeks of his life.

Predictably, he was copping it on social media.

'' Call of Duty has ruined me '' Claims Krygios


Nick Kyrgios was left complaining about his poor eyesight at Arthur Ashe Stadium after losing both the first and second sets in tiebreaks against unseeded Russian Andrey Rublev the US Open in New York.

Claiming he "can't see" due to apparently playing too much of the video game Call of Duty, Kyrgios directed his comments into the crowd after taking Rublev to the brink in the first set.

Kyrgios didn't drop serve in an impressive opening set, sending down 18 aces, but was heard talking to himself in the wake of losing the tiebreaker. "Brutal, brutal," he muttered.

The crowd warmed to the combustible Australian, who appeared focused and determined, as the pair traded service games in the second set, to force another tiebreaker.

"Call of Duty has ruined me, I can't see a thing," Kyrgios repeated. He eventually succumbed 7-5 in the second-set tiebreaker – the same score as in the first.

Earlier, boom youngster Alexei Popyrin smashed his racquet in anguish after his gallant US Open run came to a gut-wrenching end at Flushing Meadows.

The Australian was unable to contain his frustrations after failing to serve out a titanic fourth set in a 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (3-7), 7-6 (7-2) third-round loss to Italian Matteo Berrettini on Saturday night.

Popyrin was hoping to reach the last 16 at a grand slam for the fourth time and was left shattered at falling short after battling for more than three and a half hours against the 24th seed.

The 20-year-old appeared to lack energy in the opening two sets, Berrettini breaking once in each to assume control.

The Italian also conjured a multitude of break points with Popyrin serving at 2-2 and 4-4 in the third set.
