Nick Kyrgios is known for a fiery temper and has been in the news for his comments. The 25-year-old once again became the talk of the town for his match against Ugo Humbert in the second round of the Australian Open 2021 as he had a fiery showdown with the chair umpire Marijana Veljovic on his favourite court Melbourne Park. The Australian also demolished his racquet out of anger after losing the first set 7-5 to the Frenchman. During one of the conversations, Nick even threatened the chair umpire that he would stop playing the game if the decision was not overturned.

In the fifth set, Kyrgios called out to the umpire and said, “You don’t understand! Its f**king 1-all in the fifth set! It’s ruining the match!” He was quite lucky to have escaped punishment. The 25-year old also got into an argument over the net sensor at the top of the net. He also asked the chair umpire to fix the problem. He later demanded to the chair umpire to turn off the machine. The video of these incidents went viral on social media. Check out the video below and the picture of his smashed racquet.
