Although the London tournament is considered one of the most respected in the world, the two hot-tempered players are not interested • The Australian teased the Greek throughout the game • Both also clashed with the referee



A series of unusual incidents took place tonight (Saturday), at the Wimbledon tournament, during a third-round match between Greek side Stefanos Tsitsipas and Australian Nick Kirius, two of the hot-tempered players in the world round.

At the end of the second set, which the Greek lost, he nervously pounded his ball towards the crowd, almost hitting the stands.

Kirius try to take advantage of the situation and rage at the referee: "Are you stupid? This is a disqualification bro. This is a disqualification. So you can throw a ball at the crowd and they will not disqualify you? You are a shame and a disgrace."

After several minutes of discussions between the two and the referee, the players returned to play.

But it does not end there.

During the third set Kirius continued to tease the Greek, who lost his temper a bit and hit the ball hard, a blow that if he had hit the Australian - could have ended very badly.
