Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas were involved in one of the most bitter matches to ever grace the hallowed stage of Wimbledon, after the Australian demanded the number four seed be disqualified for smashing a ball into the crowd and the Greek admitted deliberately trying to hit the 'evil' Australian with one of his shots.

In a heated and acrimonious third-round clash on Court One, Kyrgios and Tsitsipas both received warnings from the umpire and regularly aired their frustration - both at officials and each other.

Tsitsipas did not hold back in the post-match press conference, slamming Kyrgios as a 'bully' who had an 'evil' side to him.


'It's constant bullying,' the Greek said. 'He was probably a bully at school. I don't like bullies. He has a very evil side to him.'

Kyrgios had said he 'loved' Tsitsipas and had 'huge respect' for him in his on-court interview but hit back at his opponent in response to the bullying comment.

'I'm not sure how I bullied him. He was the one that was hitting balls at me,' he said. He was the one who hit a spectator. Apart from going back and forth with the umpire, I did nothing disrespectful towards him.'

A foul-mouthed Kyrgios, who eventually won in four sets, had labelled the umpire a 'disgrace' after he refused to default Tsitsipas, who hit a backhand into the stands which narrowly missed a female spectator after losing the second set.

'Are you dumb?' Kyrgios said. 'That's a default, bro.'

When the umpire declined to bend to his requests, Kyrgios - who has proven to be his usual controversial self during the first week of Wimbledon after a number of high-profile incidents including rows with umpires and crowd members - briefly refused to continue playing as he continued to demand Tsitsipas be thrown out of the tournament.

'Is that a default or what? He just hit the ball at the f****** crowd,' said Kyrgios. 'Are you dumb? So you can hit a ball at the crowd, hit someone and not get defaulted?

'You’re a disgrace. You change the rules whenever you want.

'Give me all the supervisors. I’m not playing until we get to the bottom of it.'

The umpire appeared to explain to Kyrgios, who himself has hit a crowd member with a rogue ball during his career, that he could not default Tsitsipas because the ball did not actually hit anyone.

The number four seed received a code violation warning for his behaviour before he later received a code violation and had a point deducted when he once again hit the ball away in frustration - which he later admitted he was aiming at Kyrgios.

Some of his antics clearly frustrated Stefanos Tsitsipas who became dragged into the saga

After Kyrgios brought out another underarm serve during the third set, the Greek clearly grew even more frustrated and hit the ball away just feet below the first row of spectators behind the baseline. 

The umpire called both Kyrgios and Tsitsipas over and spoke to them to try and settle proceedings as the match threatened to descend into a farce, with both players feeling as though the world was against them. 

Former players Pat Cash and David Lloyd, who were commentating on the match for the BBC, believed Kyrgios was lucky to avoid being defaulted for his antics.

After Kyrgios had sealed victory, Cash - who was hardly well behaved on the court during his own playing days - said his fellow Aussie 'should not have even been on the court.'  

Lloyd was also angry with Kyrgios' behaviour and questioned the spirit in which he had played the game.

The Australian was fined just over £8,000 for the spitting incident during his first round match with Paul Jubb on Tuesday. Kyrgios accused the supporter in whose direction he spat at of being disrespectful to him during his narrow win in five sets. 

Kyrgios had earlier become furious with the umpire after one of his shots was called out at a crucial stage in the first set.

Stefanos Tsitsipas grew more and more frustrated as Nick Kyrgios claimed back-to-back sets

'It's 5-5 all bro, it's 5-5 all bro. So get a new one, get a new umpire,' he ranted. 

'Bro, you're supposed to make the right call, you don't get credit unless you make the right call. You just say sorry and it's all good? It's f***ing... why don't you just get a new referee? He's got one line to call bro.' 

Tsitsipas had tried to keep his cool while Kyrgios raged throughout the first set but it all came to a boil at the end of the second when he hit the ball away. Clearly, the animosity and frustration was still running deep within Tsitsipas as he subsequently lost the third set 6-3. 

In the fourth, having lost on Tsitsipas' serve to go down 3-2 in the set, Kyrgios turned his frustration to his team at the other end of the court. 

He demanded to know why they hadn't 'changed anything' from the first set after Tsitsipas saw out his service game with consummate ease. 

The fourth set went the distance with Kyrgios eventually prevailing 9-7 in a tie break to ensure he would advance to the fourth round. The match is likely to be the subject of much debate in the coming days, with pundits and other players alike likely to have a lot to say about the behaviour of the Australian in particular.
