It was controversy as usual as Nick Kyrgios took the stage at the Australian Open on Monday.

Playing against Brazil’s Rogerio Dutra Da Silva, the volatile local star was spotted yelling at a spectator.

It happened when Kyrgios was leading 4-1 in the first set, when he told a member in crowd to “shut the f*** up”.

Chair umpire Fergus Murphy was quick to serve a violation code, which didn’t go down well with Kyrgios.

“All you have to do is say ‘please be quiet when the player is serving’,” Kyrgios said, as quoted by thewest.com.au.

“If you did it the first time, he wouldn’t have done it the second time, correct? Correct?”

Murphy reacted, saying: “Because I’m not going to do it after one guy (yells out).”

Kyrgios went on to clinch a 6-1 6-2 6-4 win to set up a second-round encounter with Serbia’s Viktor Troicki.
