Nick Kyrgios is probably one of the most entertaining personalities on the tennis court. Apart from being a very good tennis player, Kyrgios is also a big showman. He plays with a lot of energy and due to his ‘impulsive’ attitude, he often gets a lot of negative limelight. Kyrgios tends to get the crowd involved in the match but things can also go south very fast.

The same thing happened for Kyrgios during his first-round match against British wildcard Paul Jubb. Kyrgios shockingly lost the first set 3-6 and was clearly not happy with it. He took an early break in the second set and got involved with the crowd and the lineswoman. Due to his ranting and gestures, the crowd wasn’t happy with him and started booing him.

A frustrated Kyrgios complained about the same to the chair umpire during the changeover. He demanded that the spectator who threw racial slurs at him be kicked out of the stadium. But the problem was that the chair umpire didn’t hear any racial comments toward her and neither anything abusive was caught on camera.

“Racism is acceptable, but two logos on a hat is crossing the line?” Kyrgios questioned the chair umpire. He was talking about Wimbledon’s tradition of clothing rules. Even in the press conference, he took a dig at the all-white rule and said that Wimbledon doesn’t like anything cool.
