Nicholas Hilmy Kyrgios is an Australian professional tennis player. In singles, he has a career high ATP singles ranking of world No. 13, achieved on 24 October 2016. Kyrgios has won six ATP titles and has reached nine ATP finals, including a Masters 1000 final at the 2017 Cincinnati Masters.

In doubles, he has a career-high ranking of world No. 29, achieved on 21 March 2022, after winning a Major doubles title at the 2022 Australian Open and later making the semifinals in Miami, on both occasions partnering Thanasi Kokkinakis.

In his junior career, Kyrgios won the boys' singles event at the 2013 Australian Open and the boys' doubles events at the 2012 French Open, the 2012 Wimbledon and the 2013 Wimbledon Championships. 

 Stefanos Tsitsipas labeled Nick Kyrgios as a "bully" after he was beaten by the Australian in a volatile "circus" of a third-round match at Wimbledon on Saturday.

Kyrgios won 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (7) to reach the fourth round at the All England Club for the first time since 2016, but not without three code violations being issued during the match -- one on Kyrgios for an audible obscenity and two on Tsitsipas for ball abuse, earning a point penalty.

After the match, the fourth-seeded Tsitsipas said Kyrgios has "an evil side" and must have been "a bully at school" for the way he behaved throughout the match.

Much of the drama surrounded an incident at the end of the second set, when Tsitsipas flicked a ball into the corner stands, narrowly missing a spectator.

Responded Kyrgios: "To come in here and say I bullied him, that's just soft. We're not cut from the same cloth. I go up against guys who are true competitors. If he's affected by that today, then that's what's holding him back, because someone can just do that and that's going to throw him off his game like that. I just think it's soft."

More antics came from both players throughout. From underarm serves hit by Kyrgios -- including one between his legs -- to three shots purposely smacked right at him by Tsitsipas. Continue reading

Kyrgios' issues with the chair umpire began in the first set, when he was disturbed by a reversed call by a line judge and wanted that official removed, which didn't happen.
