Nick Kyrgios hits an all-time low as he called members of his own team “retarded” during his win over Feliciano Lopez at Wimbledon.
The Australian looked angry with the support team in his players box on Saturday, demanding they give him more vocal support or leave the court in a match held up for bad light.
“It’s all in the heat of battle,” Kyrgios told a news conference after completing the win on Middle Sunday. “I know some people can obviously get offended by that. I’m not meaning to be rude or disrespectful at all.”
