Nick Kyrgios‘ Attempt to reach consecutive quarterfinals in the Sunshine Double ended in the 4th round Miami Masters 2022 through Jannik sinner. Sinner won the match 7-6(3), 6-3 to go 8-1 at the Miami Gardens, but the match made headlines, not for the result but for the ugly incident that unfolded during the game happened.

With drama Nick somehow found on the pitch, the Australian was once again involved in a bust with the chair umpire at the end of the first half. When the referee’s walkie-talkie went off mid-game, Nick suggested to his friend in the stands that someone else take over the referee’s job, who he felt wasn’t even capable of controlling the crowd well.

Chairman Arbitrator Carlo Bernandes didn’t like the personal comments as Nick had previously also criticized the court’s slowness. He handed the Aussie a point penalty in the 1st set tie-break and when Nick argued with him again during the substitution, he received a game penalty as Nick also smashed a racquet earlier in the set, resulting in Sinner leading the second set 1:0 before it started.

“It’s pretty easy. Once you have received a warning, do not do anything else that warrants further punishment. Actually, I didn’t disagree with Nick when he asked why he got a point penalty in the tie-break because he said that referee was bad to someone and someone else could do better. I feel like he has a valid point there. Carlos, who I like, may have hurt his feelings, but that doesn’t look like unsportsmanlike behavior. It seems like there was ego involved there.” former world No. 1 Andy Roddick said to Tennis Channel.

While andy Supporting Nick when he asked what he did wrong, the American later pointed out that Nick’s reaction after the penalty was awarded was wrong as the referee awaited opportunities to penalize him.

“It’s not why you get upset, it’s how you react to it. Hitting a racquet squarely in the face when you know he’s ticking fast, he’s quick to give you a warning, he’s motivated, he’s personally offended and therefore your problem solving of smashing a racquet has to give him one pause, one set and a breakdown, that’s where you lose me.

“You don’t want to hear the opinions, but then you do something where it’s impossible to stop and say that was absolutely not the right thing to do if you wanted to win that tennis match.” added Roddick, thinking Nick there was also someone who had previously asked why this is so retired players who voice their opinions without being asked to the. “I don’t agree with Nick Kyrgios, it seems like there was ego involved,” Andy Roddick commented on the Australian’s last fight with the chair umpire in Miami
