Nick Kyrgios blew up after getting docked a point for cursing

BY Kerouac Smith • March 13, 2016

Nick Kyrgios exited the Indian Wells tennis tournament in Saturday's second round, but he didn't go quietly.

The feisty Australian got into an angry exchange with the chair umpire early in the second set of his loss to Albert Ramos-Vinolas over cursing during the match, for which the umpire docked him a point.

In the video below, you can hear Kyrgios say "What the (expletive) just happened?" to someone off court, and the umpire respond "Please Nick, stop using 'F' words," and saying that a linesman had reported the language previously.

The two continued to argue, with Kyrgios telling the umpire "I don't wanna play anymore, this is (expletive)."

The match did continue however, with Kyrgios falling 7-6 (4), 7-5.
