The 27-year-old , who he revealed he suffers from asthma post-match, complained of smelling marijuana smoke in the crowd, before hurling abuse at his own box and spitting on the court. “It was f***ing marijuana. It was smoke. Obviously I’m not going to complain about food,” Kyrgios could be heard saying over the on-court microphone.
“When athletes are running side to side and they have asthma, it’s probably not ideal.” The Wimbledon finalist was guilty of those committing two aforementioned offences during his campaign at the All-England Club this year.
His actions frustrated compatriot and tennis legend Todd Woodridge, who claimed the world number 25’s team should leave the court mid-match should Kyrgios lash out once again. “At some point the people who are sitting in his players box need to take some action,” Woodbridge said on the Channel 9 broadcast.
