Kyrgios wins incredible 12-10 tie-break during wild first round Wimbledon tie


Nick Kyrgios showed his best and worst sides in a delightful first round clash with fellow Australian Jordan Thompson on Wimbledon on Tuesday.

The victory – in which Kyrgios set up a potentially heavyweight collision with Rafael Nadal as the Spaniard Yuichi Sugita can defeat – came to field three after a topsy-turvy competition in front of a bumper crowd.

Kyrgios stood in front of his fellow Australian – ranked just one place behind him on the ATP tour – in a clash full of histrionics, where both players received code violations.

In the third set, with the matte level on one piece, Kyrgios shot a ball miles from the arena, while Thompson repeatedly hit his racket on the grass.

Kyrgios was also involved in a heated discussion with the referee while he was calling out a line judge's call – an opinion agreed by both players.

Halfway through the set, he said to the referee: & Will he get a fine? Why doesn't he get a fine?

& # 39; I give the man [Thompson] points and tell him to challenge like that. I give the man points. Wake up. & # 39;

The eruption of Kyrgios came shortly after he, again against the referee, had finished a photographer who spoke loudly on the right.

& # 39; Well, I mean, you're probably right, but it's still stupid & # 39 ;, Kyrgios said.

& # 39; She literally talks, it's not stupid. But how loud she is – it's called consciousness, shows something.

& # 39; Yes, she can talk, but if I did that work, I'd say, "Wow, I'll keep my voice low." She brings a camera to court that is the size of a tennis racket. & # 39;

When the set reached the boiling point, Kyrgios threw countless chances to win it – one while he bizarrely served an forearm – before it went to a tie-break.

Kyrgios ran across the court, complaining regularly about fatigue, trying trick shots against his increasingly frustrated opponent.

Incredibly, with Kyrgios at setpoint and the crowd holding his breath, the referee ignored a line right to call halfway – but it was then found wrong by Hawk-Eye.

Thompson was, perhaps understandably, furious and shouted: & # 39; So that's the one you decide to call? Mate, you have a shock. & # 39;
