Stefanos Tsitsipas produced a few seconds of madness at the ATP Cup as he took his frustrations out on his racket during his clash against Nick Kyrgios and ended up accidentally hitting his father.
Greece took on Australia in their final round-robin clash in Group F, having already been knocked out of the tournament.
And it wasn’t a good day at the office for the Tsitsipas family as the world No 6 didn’t make the best of starts as he lost the opening set 6-7 (7-9) against Kyrgios.
To add insult to injury, he had a meltdown after losing the set and smashed his racket against the chair and ended up hurting his father, Greece captain Apostolos Tsitsipas.
The 21-year-old ATP Finals champion then got a telling off from his mother Julia.

The scolding from his mother appeared to help as he won the second set, but his Australian opponent eventually wrapped up the match 6-7 (7-9), 7-6 (7-3), 6-7 (5-7).
