No Nick, you’re a f****** disgrace

Aussie tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios just can’t stop it – with another meltdown, this time at the Miami Open overnight.
Kyrgios lashed out the chair umpire and broke his racquet during a thriller of a loss with doubles partner American Taylor Fritz against Joao Sousa and Guido Pella.
Kyrgios and Fritz lost a tight third set tiebreak to go down 6-7 7-6 6-7 to bow out of the doubles draw at the tournament.
Frustrated with several calls, Kyrgios lost his cool with the umpire and unloaded with a tirade of foul-mouthed expletives.
The temper tantrum has gone viral as stunned fans filmed the outburst.
“What is wrong with you? You’re a disgrace,” Kyrgios screamed at the umpire. “You’re a f***ing disgrace.”
Kyrgios then hurls his racquet onto the court as he sits down before turning his attention to the crowd.
“Do you think that’s alright, yes or no?,” he complains to the crowd.
“Just give me the answer. He’s a disgrace.”
“I come out and give 100 per cent and I have to deal with idiots like him. ‘Does he get fined for his mistakes? It’s rubbish, man.”
It took a while for Kyrgios to calm down, but when he did, he tried to defuse the situation by making fun of himself on Twitter.
But the outburst didn’t go down well with many fans.
Social media lit up with one fan posting: “Nick Kyrgios is such a horrible human being that deserves no sympathy from anyone.”
Another said: “One step forward, five steps back. Big fine expected for that abuse of an official and racquet abuse.”
Kyrgios, 33 ranked, will take on Serbian Dusan Lajovic in the third round of the singles draw on Monday.
This latest outburst comes after sparked controversy earlier this year when he hit out at Australian Davis Cup captain Lleyton Hewitt.
He then lashed out at fans during a his quarter final showdown at the Mexican Open with Rafa Nadal.
Then a week later he smashed his racquet on court and hurled his shoes mid-match into the crowd at the Indian Wells.
