Nick Kyrgios lashed out at Dayana Yastremska after she defeated Ajla Tomljanovic to win the Thailand Open title on Sunday.

Tomljanovic, who happens to be the girlfriend of Kyrgios, was leading 5-2 in the third set when Yastremska called for a medical time out.

“That medical was trash,” Kyrgios tweeted.

Tomljanovic, too, was not happy with Yastremska’s timing as she questioned the chair umpire if the latter had specified the reason.

Yastremska hadn’t, the umpire revealed, much to Tomljanovic’s dismay.

“Every umpire is supposed to ask a player. I always get asked,” the Australian said.

“I cannot deny her,” the umpire got back.

And guess what? The 18-year-old Russian staged a stunning comeback to pull off a 6-2 2-6 7-6 win over Tomljanovic.
