Nick Kyrgios Kicked Out Of Italian Open After Launching Chair Across Court
It's just another day in the life of Nick Kyrgios. In an incredible outburst, the Australian has been disqualified from his Italian Open match against Casper Ruud after launching a chair across court.
The 24-year-old, who is never one to shy away from expressing his frustrations, received multiple code violations earlier in the match.
But Kyrgios eventually lost his cool completely in the final set when the umpire handed him a game penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.
He kicked the ground in frustration, threw his racket on the floor and proceeded to throw a chair into the middle of the court, leaving onlookers in a state of shock as he shouted: "I'm done. I'm f****ng done."
Kyrgios then packed his bags and walked off as the commentators tried to describe what was going on:
"We've seen him destroy his rackets on a few occasions. But look at this. Can you believe it?" said Amazon Prime commentator Robbie Koenig
"The fans are telling him to get back on the court. Incredible scenes. Absolutely crazy scenes.
"I guess crazy and Nick Kyrgios in the same sentence does actually make sense."

According to The Daily Mail, there is a suggestion that Kyrgios was put off by someone in the crowd while he was serving.
He then reportedly produced the following outburst: "F****** retard bro. Why are you walking across court as I am serving? I don't want to play. Why would I play?
"I am giving 100 per cent to deal with f****** idiots like him, I'm done. I'm f****** done. I'm f****** done with it. I don't give a f***."

Back in March, the 24-year-old showcased his extreme talents on the court, rather than his attitude off it.
On the Sunday night he came up against Dusan Lajovic in the last 32 of the Miami Open and boy did he put on a show.
Kyrgios made it through in straight sets, but made sure his victory came with plenty of entertainment with a no look shot and an underarm serve before seeing a crowd member escorted out for an argument:
