Federer: Kyrgios should not be banned - Rome Masters 2019

  • Nick Kyrgios has earned a reputation as a bit of a bad boy on the court

Kyrgios grabbed the headlines when he suffered a spectacular meltdown on Court Three against Norwegian qualifier Casper Ruud.

The frustrated 24-year-old shook hands with his opponent and the umpire before he strode off the court, effectively defaulting himself from the contest.

Having already been handed a violation earlier, it meant the umpire also handed Kyrgios a game penalty.

Kyrgios's default sent Rudd to the third round, where he'll take on Juan Martin del Potro.

Speaking to tennis writer Ben Rothenberg on the "No Challenges Remaining" podcast, Kyrgios also said Djokovic was "an unbelievable player" and "a champion of the sport" but added that the Serb was too desperate to be admired like Federer.

The unsportsmanlike conduct from Nick Kyrgios in the Roman Masters 1000 event was condemned by Toni Nadal, uncle and ex-coach of Rafael Nadal.

Playing twice in one day, as the players had to yesterday, is never ideal, but the sample size for players dealing with this in various situations is pretty small and hard to analyse. But just came up short on those match points.

"I woke up this morning and I couldn't really move my thumb", the 21-year-old said. "He was angry from the start, at that point in the third, I thought "this has to be it" you can't go on like that and go on playing'". If that's run its course, I don't think he should be suspended. "I believe it's going to be similar conditions in the match this afternoon".

Federer, bidding for only the second French Open title of his career, will look to regain fitness ahead of the tournament starting in Paris on May 26.

The four-time Italian Open victor next plays Argentine seventh seed Juan Martin Del Potro for a place in the semi-finals.

Austrian Thiem complained competitors were left hanging around during the rain-impacted day 24 hours earlier.

"After a lot of years here, I know what happened last week, and I'm going to try to do it better tomorrow", said 17-time Grand Slam victor Nadal.

"I'm quite pissed about it".

With the two tournament favourites very strong favourites to proceed to Saturday's semi-final, the other two quarter-finals today are rather more even-looking affairs. Japan's Kei Nishikori, the sixth seed, got past American Taylor Fritz 6-2, 6-4 and next meets Jan-Lennard Struff.

The world number one saved two match points in a second set tiebreak before edging to victory in the final set after a match that brought out some scintillating tennis from both players.

Roger had more winners but also more unforced errors, the usual price for his aggression against Rafa and determination to keep the points on his racquet and avoid longer rallies.

"I'll let others, officials, decide that", Djokovic said.

Next up for the Japanese player on the clay of the Foro Italico is Romania's Mihaela Buzarnescu.
