Even after Tsitsipas blasted a ball into the crowd, Kyrgios pleaded with the chair umpire to disqualify him from the competition. Even the news conferences following the game were marred by the tension between the two athletes.
During his Wimbledon encounter against Stefanos Tsitsipas, Nick Kyrgios yelled at the chair umpire in the video below.

The fourth-seeded Greek said that Kyrgios was “a bully” and had an “evil side” in the press conference following the match.
“He consistently bullies people; that’s what he does. He intimidates his opponents. He most likely bullied kids in school himself. I detest bullies.
“He also possesses some admirable qualities.
But he also has a very evil side, and if that side is revealed, it has the potential to cause a lot of hurts and bad to those who are close to him.
Kyrgios was equally direct in his speech.
Maybe he should learn how to defeat me a few more times before moving on to that, he suggested.
“I’m unsure of how I mistreated him. He was the one throwing balls at me, striking a spectator, then smacking the ball out of the stadium. I took no action.
“I didn’t act disrespectfully toward Stefanos today. He’s weak to come in here and claim that I mistreated him. We are not made of the same stuff. If that has an impact on him, then that’s what’s stopping him “Added he.
Tsitsipas and Kyrgios each received fines for infractions they committed during the game.
While the Australian was penalized USD 4,000 for audible profanity, Tsitsipas received a USD 10,000 sentence.
Additionally, Kyrgios was given a $10,000 fine for acting unsportsmanlike during his first-round encounter.
