Kyrgios cheers for injury

Kyrgios saw red in the third set with the chair umpire after being timed for not being willing to accept a serve from Medvedev.

An angry Kyrgios approached Bernardes in his chair and the pair exchanged a few words.

This is how the exchange went:

Kyrgios: I just went to my towel. I went to my towel! Usually the prom kids give me my towel.

Bernhard: You receive, you do not serve.

Kyrgios: Listen! I don’t want to talk to you, listen to me.

Bernhard: So don’t scream, stop screaming.

Kyrgios: Normally the ball kids give me the towel – yes or no? Usually, yes, do they do it right? I just went to my towel. That’s all I did.

Kyrgios happened to drop by early in the game to chat with Alcott on the sidelines. The following was said:

“He’s on his feet,” Alcott said.

“He’s right, but he said, ‘It’s so hard to play this guy’ because if he doesn’t make his first serve every time, the guy is like a robot and he doesn’t miss a shot.

“He also said he wanted to do the armpit every time, and I said, ‘Do it, why not if you’re so far back.’

“He’s totally into it and he’s engaged. Even though it’s difficult out here, I think he feels he has a good chance.”
