Anger from the Australian really literally splashed at times, giving way to emotion. He drafted the referee and even spat from the auditorium toward the loudmouth.
“Yes, when I won, I turned to him,” Kyrgios admitted after the match, making a harsh gesture toward the fan in the auditorium. the 27-year-old tennis player complained and left his actions without apology (on the video at about 1:00).
He claimed that there were mitigating circumstances for him. Referee Marija Čičaková ignored his requests for the vulgar spectator to be expelled.
“Someone in the auditorium shouted that I was shit. Is that normal? No. But it’s happening over and over again. I think it’s a degree of respect. Why do they find it acceptable?” durdil se.
During the match, Kyrgios also urged the referees to arrange for the dismissal of spectators who harassed him, although he did not specify the nature of their behavior.
However, he accused the social media of creating a new kind of fans who explicitly annoy sports stars with filming. “It’s happening more and more often in sports,” Kyrgios said.
He traditionally joined the judges on the court. “Those people are over 90, they can’t see the ball,” he told the senior bar after a successful challenge. He also described one judge as a bonza when she reacted to a colleague’s mistake.
Wimbledon officials are considering fining Kyrgios for his actions. In 2010, Romanian Victor Hanescu was fined $ 15,000 for spitting at spectators. According to the rules, players can now be fined up to $ 20,000 for each offense. However, Kyrgios insisted that he had done nothing wrong and did not count on a fine.
In the second round, the Serb Filip Krajinovič awaits him, then his opponent should be Stefanos Tsitsipas, the Greek four, who defeated the Swiss Alexander Ritschard.
