Nick Kyrgios beats hasty Shanghai retreat for third year running

Kyrgios ousted in Shanghai Masters

"You have no right to tell me that it's poor".

Nick Kyrgios continued his Shanghai nightmare with a first-round exit.

"You know exactly what I meant, Nick".

He later sarcastically asked Dumusois "was that borderline?" after serving an ace.

"I think it's really up to him where he wants to go and what his potential really holds", the 20-time Grand Slam victor said.

It's the latest incident for the 23-year-old but, until this point, his 2018 season overall has been a big improvement in behavior. "I think we're two very different characters", said Kyrgios following his defeat to the Swiss at the US Open.

As Klahn worked his way towards a win, his frustrated Australian opponent engaged in an argument with French umpire Damien Dumusois.

The tech firm revealed the latest decision hours after confirming it had exposed Google + users' personal data. Google would have bid on the proposal if the project had been split, the company says.

He later cautioned the umpire: "You know I literally could just go to the ATP office after this and say I just felt put down from your comment and you'd be in trouble, right?"

Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios has found himself in hot water yet again, following a weird outburst at the Shanghai Rolex Masters. for the fourth year in a row.

He was fined a year ago after walking off the court during his first-round match. He was fined $16,500 for tanking in his 6-3, 6-1 defeat at the hands of Mischa Zverev.

Anyone, tennis follower or not, who watches Kyrgios will be impressed by his athleticism, ball striking and creativity on the court.

He was also fined $US1,500 at the 2015 edition of the tournament after audibly swearing and complaining the event was a "circus". Swedish umpire Mohamed Lahyani was reprimanded by US Open organisers for going "beyond protocol" when he climbed down from his chair to give Nick Kyrgios a mid-match pep talk during his second round match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

Now ranked 38th in the world, Kyrgios is in danger of going into next year's Australian Open unseeded, having reached the fourth round this year after winning his first home tournament in Brisbane. The win continues an impressive run of recent form in Asia for the 24 year-old, who beat world number 18 Jelena Ostapenko in Wuhan and stunned world number seven Petra Kvitova in Beijing.
