Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios got himself into a fresh controversy after he was issued a code of violation during his first-round match against Italy’s Marco Cecchinato at the Roland Garros on Sunday.

It all rolled out after Kyrgios yelled “towel” at a ball boy, which clearly didn’t go down well with chair umpire Carlos Ramos, who was quick to take out a violation code for the 21-year-old.

Kyrgios, however, expressed disapproval of the umpire’s decision as he claimed that he had screeched at the ball boy only because the atmosphere at the court was noisy, and not otherwise.

Consequently, he accused the umpire of being biased as he measured the incident to that of Novak Djokovic, who had made the headlines for shoving at umpire’s arm in Rome this month.

“Now I’ve really seen it all. What rules am I breaking? That’s f*****g b******t. How can you sit there and give me a code for that? But when Djokovic pushes an umpire out of the way that’s alright? Tell the whole world that’s alright,” Kyrgios was quoted by

Kyrgios, however, managed to win the match, 7-6 7-6 6-4.
