Nick Kyrgios calls linesman ‘snitch’ and demands Wimbledon fan be removed for booing


It’s always fun when Nick Kyrgios steps onto the tennis court.

His first round match at Wimbledon was no different and it only took a few minutes for the Aussie to start getting riled up.

It only took 12 minutes for Kyrgios to become embroiled in the controversy

He was facing British joker Paul Jubb on Court 3 and after 12 minutes one of the linesmen reported something Kyrgios had said to the referee.

Kyrgios then disputed this, calling her a “snitch”.

We heard him say, “Has anyone come here today to see her speak, no. Why is she doing this? No one in the stadium saw her coming to do anything. Not a single person.

“Know what I mean? I know you have fans, but she doesn’t. What did I do? Come on.

“She just selfishly walks towards you in the middle of the game. She’s a snitch.

The fun continued as he hit an underarm serve between his legs and then smashed a ball out of bounds, which led to a warning.

Kyrgios then crushed an ace, which was called by the same linesman in the previous incident.

The referee overruled the call, leading to the Aussie being told to ‘get off the court’.

Jubb played brilliantly to win the first set, but that was unfortunately secondary to Kyrgios’ show.

There was a lot of heckling and booing towards the world No. 45 and he wasn’t entirely happy.

Kyrgios was involved in a long argument with the referee to have the spectator sent off, which she politely disagreed with.
