Three code violations was issued during the game, one on Kyrgios and two on Tsitsipas which even earned him a penalty point too. The code violation on Krygios was audible obscenity and Tsitsipas erned two ball abuse violations.
Kyrgios won 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (7) to reach the fourth round at the All England Club for the first time since 2016.
Both players lashed out at each other. Tsitsipas accused Kyrgiod of being a bully. He said ” He bullies the opponents. He was probably a bully at school himself. I don’t like bullies. I don’t like people that put other people down “.
Kyrgios in reply said that ” To come in here and say I bullied him, that’s just soft. We’re not cut from the same cloth. I go up against guys who are true competitors. If he’s affected by that today, then that’s what’s holding him back, because someone can just do that and that’s going to throw him off his game like that. I just think it’s soft “.
