Kyrgios raged several times during his three-hour duel with five sentences on Let Calls, which he thought were wrong, and asked veteran referee Marijana Veljovic to “turn the machine off” and even threaten to quit if she did not / p>

In the fifth set, after having received two code violations at the beginning of the game, Kyrgios risked a third code violation – and thus the automatic loss of a game – when he started another argument with the referee and his bat against it hit the net

Kyrgios was asked for permission several times in the first set when he served with 2-3, although Kyrgios believed the ball had clearly gone over the net

“Reset the machine because the ball is so high (hand movement with arms wide apart) away from the net,” he told referee Marijana Veljovic

Lets are called from an automated system that plugs into the top of the network itself

Kyrgios eventually lost the first set and destroyed his bat before shooting back to equalize in the second set – despite MORE drama with the let system

“Just turn the machine off,” he told the referee twice as he shook his head in disbelief, “Turn it off”

“Come on man, it happened to his serve, it is so far above the net (gesturing again) My serve too. It ruins the game, don’t you get it?”

That didn’t calm Kyrgios, who replied, “What do you mean, that you know? It ruins the game

“It happened in the first sentence, I told you to turn it off. Did you turn it off? “

Veljovic shook his head and said no to the angry Kyrgios, who came back and served again – just so that someone else could be called

“Turn it off, brother”, he grumbled again “It’s so high above the net I won’t play until you turn it off!

The referee dismounted from her chair and tested the technology during recess before speaking to Kyrgios. “It missed the serve by so much,” he told her

The problem reappeared in the second game of the fifth set, when the let system left Kyrgios angrily again

Two more vicious serves were called lets Kyrgios protested against the referee and marched to the net

“Bro, it’s so high,” he said, putting his hand one foot over the net. The mercury Australian hit his bat against the net before returning to the baseline

Then he took matters into his own hands by slamming a hit into the net and releasing the automatic cable device from its position

Referee Veljovic decided not to replace it immediately – as is customary for the tournament – as Kyrgios then worked his way out of trouble and struggled against game points

The umpire then dismounted from her chair to change the device and had Kyrgios smoke again and asked her to call Let manually

“It ruins the game It ruins the game You don’t understand that in the fifth sentence it’s everything”

Kyrgios had previously received a code violation for smashing a bat, and then a second in the fourth set for ruthlessly smashing a ball in frustration.This second incident cost him a point penalty and Kyrgios faced the prospect of a game penalty faced when he received a third code violation

But he didn’t seem to care about the ramifications as he cleared his frustrations with the technology
