WATCH: Nick Kyrgios hits must-see cross-court tweener at Miami Open
Nick Kyrgios is out of the Miami Open, but he certainly didn’t go quietly!
The Australian received a point penalty for code violations after smashing his racket and telling a fan to ‘f*** off’ in his defeat to Borna Coric.
However, just as typically, there was also a moment of breathtaking genius to enjoy.
During the first set, Kyrgios produced a sensational cross-court tweener winner which must be seen to be believed.

Kyrgios had an eventful tournament in Miami, with Coric summing up the brilliant unpredictability of the Australian before their match.
“Well, we all know Nick,” Coric explained. “He is a great player with a great serve, especially when he has a good day.
“It is hard to predict how good the match would be, it all depends on him.”
