Stefanos Tsitsipas lost his cool at chair umpire Damien Dumusois during his shock US Open defeat to Andrey Rublev on Tuesday.

After being handed a code violation for coaching early in the game, Tsitsipas was at the receiving end a couple more times.

The Greek youngster began to cramp in the fourth set, which caused delays between points. This prompted Dumusois to give him a code violation.

Later in the same set, Tsitsipas wanted to change, but Dumusois thought he was well past the time limit.

The 21-year-old wasn’t taking it this time though as he gave the umpire a piece of his mind.  

“For some reason, you have something against me,” Tsitsipas alleged. “I don’t know what—because you’re French probably. And you’re all weirdos. You’re all weirdos.

“Give me warning, I don’t care. Give me warning, give me warning, yeah, give me warning, I don’t care. Give me warning.”

Tsitsipas, who had lost in the first rounds of Montreal and Cincinnati as well, was handed a 6-4 6-7 7-6 7-5 to Rublev in the first round.
