The Nick Kyrgios roadshow hit the US Open on Tuesday, much to the dismay of Steve Johnson who complained “it’s a f***ing sh**show out here”.

The Australian got the better of Johnson in the opening round of the final Grand Slam of the year at Flushing Meadows, winning the late-night match 6-3, 7-6 (7-1), 6-4.

However, Kyrgios produced his usual antics as he got upset with some of the spectators and had a discussion with the chair umpire.

He eventually got fed up and swore, which earned him a code violation, and he took offence to the punishment and decided it was time to have another discussion with the official.

And that’s when his American opponent got irked.

“It’s a f***ing sh**show out here,” Johnson said. “You wanna f***ing play tennis or host a sh**show, Nick?”

Kyrgios didn’t respond to Johnson’s comments on the court, but after the win he had nothing but praise for his opponent and the fans.

“I want to just thank you guys for staying out, I know it’s late and I appreciate that,” he said.

“Steve is a hell of a player, he’s one of my good mates in the locker room and he played well I knew I had to play the right type of tennis and I’m happy to get through.”
