Angry Kyrgios Calls Out 'Drunk' Fan And His Own Box During Wimbledon Final

Angry Kyrgios Calls Out 'Drunk' Fan And His Own Box During Wimbledon Final
By Colman Stanley

Nick Kyrgios was not a happy camper during his match with Novak Djokovic in today's Wimbledon final.

His first gripe was with a fan whom he claimed was talking during his serves, and Kyrgios wanted them thrown out. When the umpire asked which spectator his complaint was with, Kyrgios replied,

It's the one who looks like she has had about 700 drinks

Next up to experience the wrath of Kyrgios was his own box, consisting of his coaches, girlfriend, and friends.

The Australian appeared to be complaining that they were not cheering him loudly or animatedly enough after winning points.

Despite his outbursts however, the Wimbledon crowd seemed to be on his side and cheering his points a little bit louder.

Nevertheless, Kyrgios took the first set 6-4, with his exquisite service game and effortless shot power shining through.

Djokovic, as he always does, would come storming back and take the next set 6-3, and the third set 6-4.

The hat cladded Djokovic's serve returns were at their brilliant best, although there was still a feeling that he had a few more levels in him.

At the time of writing, it is currently 6-6 in the fourth set and the beginning of a tie-break.

It is Nick Kyrgios' first Wimbledon final and first grand slam final, while Djokovic is aiming to claim his seventh Wimbledon crown.

Kyrgios is obviously no stranger to controversy and we reported earlier in the tournament on this brilliant exchange he had with a reporter.

Reporter: We all know the Wimbledon dress code rules are very strict, 'competitors must be dressed in suitable tennis attire that is almost entirely white and this applies from the point in which the player enters the court surround.

Kyrgios: Yep.

Reporter: Why then would you walk on centre court with bright red trainers on and do an interview in a red cap?

Kyrgios: Because I do what I want.

Reporter: So you're above the rules?

Kyrgios: No, I'm not above the rules.

Reporter: So what is it, they don't apply to you?

Kyrgios: Well, I just like wearing my Jordans.

Reporter: But there are rules specifically against that. I don't want to spoil the surprise, but the referees are going to be speaking to you about it.

Kyrgios: That's ok. I'll wear some triple whites tomorrow.

Reporter: So everyone else in both draws follows the rules, but Nick Kyrgios doesn't?

Kyrgios: But nobody else, even after Wimbledon, nobody else really walks with Jordans on the court.

Reporter: Nick has just moaned about the controversy that surrounds him?

Kyrgios: I haven't moaned. I love it.

Reporter: You've laughed it off, so that's all part of it you reckon?

Kyrgios: Well it's more attention for me. What's that saying? Any publicity is good publicity, right?

Reporter: If you say so.

Kyrgios: Keep doing you then champion.
