    'That's hilarious, if Rafa (Rafael Nadal) plays that quick I'm retiring from tennis. Absolute rubbish… disgrace,' Kyrgios said.
    'Get me some footage of Rafa playing that quick, that game. If you can find any of that I'll shut my mouth and never speak again.'
    The 24-year-old stuck to his word and shared side-by-side footage of himself and Nadal taking serves.
    'Facts or nah,' he captioned the video posted to Instagram.
    According to the video comparison, Kyrgios took 28.22 seconds between his point to take a serve while Nadal took 41 seconds.

    Would be good to see him giving his opponents a bit more respect...particularly given that Rafa has been a top player for years while Kirgios never progressed beyond occasional flashes of brilliance.

    Nadal is cheating and getting away with it but Our Nick cops a penalty. Good on him for protesting but it should have been controlled. I hate when they delay serving and fault serving it is the reason I watch little tennis.

    Your Nick is disgrace - swearing and spatting all over. He should be disqualified!

    Kyrgios gets abused by opposing player, Steve Johnson, for mucking up, then plays perfectly. Must be a moral there somewhere.

    Kyrgios: Tennis is boring

    I agree with Kyrgios that after 3 sets that tennis becomes boring - another reason for not watching the men's games.

    Well he is certainly making it more ''exciting'' through his antics...
