Nick Kyrgios censured by umpire over 'borderline' effort at Shanghai Masters

Nick Kyrgios censured by umpire over 'borderline' effort at Shanghai Masters

"I think it's really up to him where he wants to go and what his potential really holds", the 20-time Grand Slam victor said.

It's the third year on the bounce in Shanghai that Kyrgios has departed the tournament in controversial circumstances.

Klahn eventually wrapped up the match in one hour and 17 minutes, winning 4-6 6-4 6-3.

Last year, having earlier received a warning for smashing two balls out of court in frustration, he stormed off midway through his first-round match against Steve Johnson.

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?"

Only through understanding work ethic and scheduling, creating the right team around himself, only then can you unlock the potential really.

.

Now ranked 38, it will take a major turnaround for Kyrgios to pick up a seeding for next year's Australian Open.

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".

The Blues have began the ongoing strongly as they are only one of the three sides yet to taste defeat after eight games. Don't write Chelsea out but they need a real "goal-getter".

Kyrgios' Shanghai strop is the latest controversy to engulf him in China.

Federer, who admitted that the hard graft did not necessarily come naturally to him either, backed Kyrgios to "win bigger tournaments and do all these things".

"But there is still a process in place that he needs to do like any other player needs to go through in order to be successful".

During prolonged exchanges between the pair, Kyrgios was heard saying "I don't care" and then told the umpire: "You have no right to tell me it's poor".

During last month's US Open, an umpire copped a ban after he gave Kyrgios a freakish mid-match pep talk.

Todd Woodbridge believes Nick Kyrgios is copping extra scrutiny from umpires but doesn't help himself by the way he engages with them.

"There's a way of playing tennis on a tennis court".

Woodbridge suggested that Kyrgios was probably running on empty, which made him look disinterested and that he should look to manage his schedule better next year and concentrate on the Grand Slam and elite tour events.
