His code violations include “audible obscenities” and bouncing his racket violently into the crowd, according to the Guardian. “Violation of this section shall subject a player to a fine up to $20,000 (£12,860) for each violation”. Can you understand someone getting frustrated and doing that or do you find that disrespectful?
French Open champion Stan Wawrinka awaits Gasquet in the quarter-finals, which for the men take place on Wednesday.
Gasquet held his nerve in a fourth-set tie-break to win through to the quarter-finals, taking the match 7-5 6-1 6-7 (7/9) 7-6 (8/6). All of which might explain the weird close encounter with a ball-boy, when Kyrgios went over to him between points in the third set and put his arms around him. But the 29-year-old made amends on Court Two with a powerful display against the 26th seed, who helped the Frenchman by appearing to give up on several points in the second set.
From accusations of Kyrgios throwing games to Australian swimming legend Dawn Fraser dropping racist remarks, at least no one can say it’s been boring.
The vocal Aussie fans got behind Kyrgios, who divides opinion, but there was plenty of support for Gasquet. But he’s more than just a flamboyant youngster who throws his racquet into the crowd, hits a volley between his legs, or gets into verbal arguments with umpires. However, long before his fate was sealed, in just the third game of the second set, an umpire issued a warning to Kyrgios about his excessive swearing. The victor name is also Richard Gasquet.
“Sometime it happens”, said Gasquet.
“If you take (my comments) that way then I’m sorry that you take it that way, but I’m not racist at all”, she said, according to Fairfax Media.
Kyrgios thanked his fans for their unusual support.
The fans began singing to drown out the sound while Kyrgios disagreed with the umpire, prompting the player to tell them “now is not a good time” and to “stop it”. I thought I responded well, though, to even come back and win the third set. Then he became playful.
Nick Kyrgios furiously denied giving up trying as he crashed out of Wimbledon and slammed his image as the bad boy of tennis in terse exchanges with reporters.
World number two Federer, said it was not worth digging to deep into whether Kyrgios had “tanked” or not. I expected more out of myself. I feel as if I’m playing not how I should be playing.
When Gasquet finally won the match, he and Kyrgios shared a hug at the net.
“I don’t fear anyone”, said Kyrgios.
“He likes the show, of course, everybody can see that”, the Frenchman said.
“Everybody can see that”.
Dunblane ace Murray was still having trouble with his second serve deliveries and he knows it’s an area of his game that needs attention ahead of his last eight clash.
