Nick Kyrgios wins his first round US Open match – after telling the referee to stop looking at him and shouting at the crowd – and then the bosses of the game & # 39; CORRUPT & # 39; called
- Nick Kyrgios won his match against the American player Steve Johnson
- The competition was the first competition of the 24-year-old since winning a record fine
- Kyrgios challenged chair referee James Keothovong and shouted to the crowd
Tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios played a typical controversial performance before presenting his raw talent with a convincing win at the US Open.
The first round victory of Kyrgios against the American Steve Johnson was his first since he achieved a record fine of $ US113,000 ($ A167,000) for a spectacular meltdown during a warm-up tournament in Cincinnati.
He got a violation of the audible obscenity code for the crowd for their level of noise.
Kyrgios challenged British chairman-referee James Keothovong and shouted at the crowd, much to the dismay of his opponent, during the change of end.
The Australian started his tirade when Johnson asked: & # 39; Do you want to play tennis, or have a s *** show? & # 39;

However, nothing prevented Kyrgios from completing its piece.
& # 39; Is that your job? Why don't you look at people who come in for my first ministry? & # 39; he asked.
& # 39; Clearly, when I threw the ball, I saw it – that's your job. & # 39;
When the referee replied that he was actually looking at Kyrgios, the tennis star was not impressed.
& # 39; Why do you look at me when I serve? It makes no sense, & he said.
Kyrgios continued to shout at the referee before cooling down – he sat down and drank water.

But that – plus the usual moans in his box because he didn't offer enough encouragement and because his shorts apparently were too small and complained briefly about boredom – nothing was compared to marking the referee as a & # 39; f *** ing tool, a potato & # 39; and destroying two rackets two weeks ago in Cincinnati.
The 28th seed was one of five Australians to join day-one winners Ashleigh Barty and Alex de Minaur in the second round.
Jordan Thompson, Alexei Popyrin, Thanasi Kokkinakis and Ajla Tomljanovic also won on Tuesday.
