TENNIS hothead Nick Kyrgios has made the headlines for the wrong reasons again after hurling a chair onto a court.
Unsurprisingly, it led to the 24-year-old being disqualified from his second round Italian Open clash against Norway's Casper Ruud.
World number 36 Kyrgios, who was broken in the third set, threw his racket to the floor before kicking a water bottle and flinging a chair towards the centre of the court.
Ruud was leading 6-3 6-7 2-1 when Kyrgios was disqualified.
In March this year the Aussie was involved in an on court bust-up after a fan called the tennis bad boy a “d***” – before the heckler was thrown out the arena by security.
HISTORY OF TANTRUMS
The Aussie was leading Dusan Lajovic 4-1 in the third round of the Miami Open before he was involved in a back-and-forth with a heckling fan.
According to Amazon Prime’s commentary team the incident began with the fan mocking the tennis star about his haircut.
However, Kyrgios, who would go onto beat Lajovic 6-3, 6-1 to reach the fourth round, revealed the spat stemmed from the fan calling him a “dick”.
While the No33 ranked was also handed a code violation for throwing a ball into the stand at the fan and sarcastically clapping him.
That incident came justtwo days after Kyrgios verbally attacked an umpire after he and doubles partner Taylor Fritz were knocked out in Miami.
Kyrgios went up to the umpire and said: “What the f*** is wrong with you?” You’re a disgrace. You’re a f*****g disgrace.
