  • 4 Americans pull off upsets at Shanghai Masters

Last year, he was fined after he stormed off mid-way through his first-round match, with jeers and boos ringing in his ears from the crowd.

The Croatian saved two break points at 3-3 in the second set and claimed three of the first four games in the decider.

Coric, seeded 13th, will next face American qualifier Bradley Klahn, who claimed a hard-fought 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 win over Nick Kyrgios.

Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios has found himself in hot water yet again, following a freakish outburst at the Shanghai Rolex Masters. for the fourth year in a row.

World No 2 Federer will open his campaign in Shanghai - a compulsory Masters Series event for the world's top 32 - against Japan Open champion Daniil Medvedev on Wednesday, with live coverage on Sky Sports Action.

The 33-year-old Swiss star, who has had injury problems, was defeated by 13th seed Borna Coric. "You have no right to tell me that it's poor", he told the French official.

Later Kyrgios said to Dumusois: "You know I literally could just go to the ATP office after this and say I felt put down from your comment and you'd be in trouble, right?"


"I think it's really up to him where he wants to go and what his potential really holds", the 20-time Grand Slam victor said.

The match didn't go unnoticed as chair umpire Damien Dumusois appeared to be accusing Kyrgios of tanking at the beginning of the second set - which didn't sit well with the Australian.

Kyrgios' Shanghai strop is the latest controversy to engulf him in China.

Last month umpire Mohamed Lahyani was suspended from his next two scheduled tournaments after trying to encourage Kyrgios during a match at the US Open.

"I think with Nick when he's fresh he plays great and it's about managing schedules as much as anything, so that he plays no more than three weeks in row and then he gets away from it", Woodbridge said at the launch for next year's Australian Open.

Woodbridge suggested that Kyrgios was probably running on empty, which made him look disinterested and that he should look to manage his schedule better next year and concentrate on the Grand Slam and elite tour events.
