'Foul-mouthed brat Kyrgios should be banned'


//

Nick Kyrgios is a "foul-mouthed little brat" who should be banned for three months over a shocking meltdown at the Miami Open, says veteran Channel Nine sports presenter Tony Jones.

Kyrgios was playing a doubles match alongside American Taylor Fritz in Miami on Sunday (AEDT), with the pair defeated 10-8 in a super tiebreaker by Portugal’s Joao Sousa and Argentina's Guido Pella.

Kyrgios was reportedly unhappy with a number of calls during the match and he exploded at the umpire after the final point.

"What the f--- is wrong with you? You're a disgrace. Absolute f---ing disgrace," Kyrgios yelled at the umpire, before smashing his racquet and continuing his rant in the direction of fans.

“Do you think that’s alright,” he asked. “Do you think that’s alright? Yes or no?

“Yes or no? Just give me the answer. He’s a disgrace.

“I come out and give 100 per cent and I have to deal with idiots like him.

“Does he get fined for his mistakes? It’s rubbish, man.”

The rant stunned even hardened tennis followers, who have seen plenty of volatile behaviour from Kyrgios during his young career.

Jones unloaded on Kyrgios on the TODAY Show, saying the 23-year-old Aussie needed to be sidelined by the ATP Tour.

"Really ugly stuff again from Kyrgios," Jones said.

"It just begs so many questions on so many fronts. Why is it that tennis is probably the only sport in the world where the participants can freely abuse the umpires and get off scot free? We've seen it for decades now and it continues to happen.

"And as for Kyrgios, I mean, how many second chances do you give this kid? When the summer was on and we had him in the commentary box for Channel Nine, butter wouldn't melt in his mouth.

"But bottom line is, he's a foul-mouthed little brat and I just think, no more second chances. He should be banned for three months on the back of that."

Kyrgios was firing shots on social media later on, ripping women's Grand Slam winner Angelique Kerber for an apparent about-face in the wake of a loss to Bianca Andreescu.

The Aussie is still in the singles draw (seeded 27th) and will next play Serbia's Dusan Lajovic in the third round.
