Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios is not afraid to get into it. 

The man dubbed ‘tennis’s bad boy’ is among the most discussed athletes at the tournament this year. 

Leading 4-1 up in the opening set, the Aussie star got into a shouting match with a spectator who was allegedly taunting him from the stands.

Did you get a free ticket? Why are you watching me on a Sunday night?” Kyrgios asked the man

“You got nothing else for you on a Sunday night? You got nothing else to do on a Sunday night?”

The squabble could have led to a serious delay in the match had it not been for the security staff who interfered, escorting the infuriated fan out of the court.

Kyrgios waved a farewell to the trouble-maker before returning to the match, which he won with a confident score of 6-3 6-1.

The number 33 ranked player in the world later explained what caused his on-court spat with the fan. He called him a “d**k” and made fun of his haircut. 

At a change of ends he literally just said, ‘You’re a d**k’,” Kyrgios said. “He said I had a s**tty haircut. And you know what? I haven’t been to a barbershop in a couple of days, so he was pretty right.

Here’s the man being escorted out: 

Who’s the dick now?
