Coric ousts Wawrinka in Shanghai opener, Klahn stuns Kyrgios

4 Americans pull off upsets at Shanghai Masters Nick Kyrgios censured by umpire over 'borderline' effort at Shanghai Masters

In a third meltdown in as many years in Shanghai, the Aussie got riled up when the umpire warned him that his effort was "borderline" after he didn't try for a return.

The 38th-ranked Kyrgios was on the end of a surprise first-round loss to the American qualifier Bradley Klahn, the world number 104 winning 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

In his first round encounter with Steve Johnson past year, Kyrgios received a warning for smashing two balls out of court in frustration and he walked away from the game entirely after losing the first set tiebreak.

Nick Kyrgios is under fire again after an umpire questioned his "borderline" effort at the Shanghai Masters.

His latest offence was on Tuesday at the Shanghai Masters.

Federer, who admitted that the hard graft did not necessarily come naturally to him either, backed Kyrgios to "win bigger tournaments and do all these things".

"But there is still a process in place".

"I want to help you", chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani told Kyrgios, who went on to capture 19 of the next 25 games and set up a clash against Federer in NY.

The day featured most of the opening round singles matches, providing some fine exhibition of tennis throughout the day's play.

Nick Kyrgios continued his Shanghai nightmare with a first-round exit.

While Klahn's win was a boost for confidence and ranking, it was marred by yet another Kyrgios show.

Kyrgios lost five straight games from 4-4 in the second set in a match that lasted one hour and 17 minutes.

As events unfolded on the court, the 23-year-old appeared disinterested and exchanged verbal jabs with French umpire Damien Dumusois.

Swedish umpire Mohamed Lahyani was reprimanded by U.S. Open organisers for going "beyond protocol" when he climbed down from his chair to give Nick Kyrgios a mid-match pep talk during his second round match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

"When he's fresh we don't see him "leave the court" so to speak where his eyes wander; when he's playing fresh he's got the opponents in his sights".

Now ranked 38, it will take a major turnaround for Kyrgios to pick up a seeding for next year's Australian Open.
