Controversial Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios could be facing suspension after his latest blowup.

His second-round match at the Cincinnati Masters, which he lost in three sets, was full of outbursts at chair umpire Fergus Murphy over how much time he had to serve.

Kyrgios refused to shake the umpire’s hand at the end of the match, instead calling him a “f****** tool” before spitting in his direction.

He also abused the umpire during the match, yelling “why do I have to put up with this potato in the chair?”

He even left the court at one stage after requesting a ‘toilet break’, where cameras caught him smashing two rackets against a wall in the corridor.

Ben Fordham ripped into Kyrgios, labelling him a “brat” and an “absolute tool”.

“Nick, we know who the tool is. It’s you.

“This bloke is deadset heading towards straight jacket territory. He needs a psychologist, a psychiatrist and some medication.”
