Kyrgios' hidden collar message raises eyebrows


//

Aussie tennis star Nick Kyrgios raised eyebrows at the US Open in his second round win against Antoine Hoang.

Kyrgios was in cruise control for much of the match which he won 6-4, 6-2, 6-4.

As the ATP Tour investigate him and decide whether or not to suspend the Canberran for his "corrupt" claim earlier this week, Kyrgios sent a subtle message to critics of his loud behaviour on court.

During the warm-ups ahead of Hoang's first serve to start the match, Kyrgios' popped shirt collar revealed a slogan that read: "Just Do You", a play on words of Nike's iconic "Just Do It".

"I absolutely love it," commentators said when they reviewed footage of the collar message.

"I think it's great for the sport, it's going to attract so much attention."

There was a heated moment in the third set when Kyrgios mocked the umpire's decision to allow a challenge by Hoang after the chair official had called "game".

"So you can call it a game and then challenge ?" Kyrgios questioned the umpire.

Another US Open official had to come onto court, as the man in the chair seemed to decide not to engage in a lengthy argument with the Aussie.

After a brief exchange with the second official, after the next point Kyrgios then jokingly watched Hoang and the umpire, anticipating a similar situation.
