In fact, the fiesty Australian refused to play his third round match against world number 5 Tsitsipas following the incident.
It all kicked off in the second, when a furious Kyrgios called over the supervisor to asks for Tsitsipas to be defaulted as the Greek sent a ball into the crowd in frustration after losing the set. Here's some footage of the clash.

The 27-year-old, who mentioned Novak Djokovic being defaulted from the US Open in 2020, could be heard saying: "Give me all the supervisors. I'm not playing until we get to the bottom of it" before continuing his rant.

"Give me all the Supervisors. I'm not playing until we get to the bottom of it".
Remembers Djokovic's US Open default, says this one is similar.

The Serbian was trailing 6-5 in the first set of the match when he knocked away a ball he had from his service game – a strike that hit a line judge in the throat.
You can see footage of that incident below.

Earlier this week, Kyrgios was given a $14,500 fine for spitting in the direction of a spectator during his first-round matchup – the largest fine of 14 given out so far at Wimbledon.
Footage of the incident shows Kyrgios looking towards the crowd following his victory and spitting before going over and shaking British wildcard Paul Jubb’s hand.
It was in a clash that saw the Australian call a line judge a ‘snitch'.
