Kyrgios Beats Hasty Shanghai Retreat for Third Year Running

Kyrgios Beats Hasty Shanghai Retreat for Third Year Running

"And only through understanding work ethic and scheduling and whatever it might be, creating the right team around himself, only then can you unlock the potential really". For the third consecutive year, the temperamental Australian's exit was shrouded in controversy.

The second set of the match, which American world number 104 Klahn won 4-6 6-4 6-3, saw Frenchman Dumusois at one stage tell Kyrgios: "Nick - last point was really borderline".

Kyrgios has a chequered history at the Shanghai Masters after quitting mid-match against Steve Johnson in the first round past year and being accused of tanking in a second-round loss to Mischa Zverev in 2016.

Past year he was fined $10,000 and forfeited his first-round loser's cheque following a decision to walk off after losing the first set against Steve Johnson.

Borna Coric came from a set down to knock Stan Wawrinka out of the Shanghai Masters, while Milos Raonic and Nick Kyrgios were among those also eliminated.

Later Kyrgios said to Dumusois: "You know I literally could just go to the ATP office after this and say I felt put down from your comment and you'd be in trouble, right?"

"He can win bigger tournaments and do all these things", he added.

He said the talks would be held for "such a programme, a stabilisation, a recovery programme, on which basis we could overcome this financial crisis".

The Australian, who at times appeared largely disinterested in his three-set loss to American qualifier Bradley Klahn on Monday fired back by telling chair umpire Damien Dumusois he "didn't care" for his opinion and "you have no right to tell me that it's poor".

During his second-round match at the US Open in August, Kyrgios was given a pep-talk by umpire Mohamed Lahyani when he was trailing Pierre-Hugues Herbert by a set and a break.

"Nick plays his best tennis when he's fresh, when he's enjoying himself and he's engaged", said Woodbridge, according to the Melbourne Age.

He said Kyrgios looked "tired and jaded" at this stage in the season and that brings out the worst in him.

"When he has to go somewhere and that isn't the case, we see him a little jaded and we see him play the way that he did".

Kyrgios made no initial public comment after his defeat to qualifier Klahn, but has previously spoken of his intent to learn from Federer.
