Nick Kyrgios has hit out at officials once again at Wimbledon, after an out call was overruled while he was serving at 5-5 against Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Aussie’s x-rated rant for a “new” referee comes after he  was slapped with a £8,200 fine for his first-round match in which he called a linesperson a “snitch” an spat towards a spectator.

Kyrgios was serving at 5-5 in the first set of his match against the fourth seed when one of his shots was called out but overruled by the umpire. And the world No 40 was quick to hit out at the officials days after he was fined for calling a linesperson a “snitch” in his match against Paul Jubb, where he also claimed the lines people were too “old” to see properly.

“It’s 5-5 all bro, it’s 5-5 all bro. So get a new one, get a new umpire,” he ranted. “Bro, you’re supposed to make the right call, you don’t get credit unless you make the right call. You just say sorry and it’s all good? It’s f***ing… why don’t you just get a new referee? He’s got one line to call bro.”

The 27-year-old was also unhappy that there appeared to be a mistake made in “every match” as he continued his tirade. “Every match there’s a mistake, and we just have to deal with it? Every match. Why you scared, why are you hesitating, at 5-5 all?”
