Nick Kyrgios puts on a show

Nick Kyrgios’ on-court frustration against chair umpire Carlos Bernardes at the Miami Open continued off-court and online as he vented on social media.

The controversial Australian lost his cool during his fourth-round clash against Jannik Sinner as he lashed out at Bernardes at the end of the first set after he was docked a point for racket abuse and double-faulting.

After smashing his racket again early in the second set he was docked a game and that was followed by a selfie with a young fan who ran onto the court.

“Get a new set of referees, these guys don’t know how to do s***,” Kyrgios screamed.

He eventually lost 7-6 (7-3), 6-3, but then took to social media to criticise the official.

“‘You could do the job of the umpire’ – what was said to my best friend that got me ‘unsportsmanlike code violation’ at 5-3 in the first set tie break. With 100 of thousands of dollars on the line that was the decision he made because the umpires ‘feelings got hurt. GET NEW PEOPLE.”

And when someone replied: “Getting a bit tired mate. You seem to love the carry on when its all your way (like Aust Open) but when the situation is against its everyone else’s fault.”

The retort was brutal.

“Cool Geoff. No one gives a flying fuck about your opinion.”

Kyrgios did return to praise Sinner, who just quietly went about his business, and also had another pop at Bernardes writing: “Don’t get it twisted. I got mad respect for @janniksin ⚡️⚡️ he is one of my favourite players and he was TOO GOOD. I am aiming all of this at an umpire who clearly ISNT GOOD ENOUGH to be doing these matches. Nothing but a slap on the wrist for him right? What a joke.”
