Nick Kyrgios self-destructs again at the Rolex Shanghai Masters

4 Americans pull off upsets at Shanghai Masters

Raonic and Kyrgios were both ousted in three sets by Mackenzie McDonald and fellow American qualifier Bradley Klahn respectively, but 10th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas was able to progress courtesy of a 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 6-4 success over Gael Monfils.

After an umpire questioned Nick Kyrgios" "borderline' effort at the Shanghai Masters, Roger Federer sent a dire warning to the temperamental Aussie if he plans to fulfil his potential.

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

"We don't really know and I don't think he really knows exactly what his potential is".

Shanghai - Australian firebrand Nick Kyrgios exited the Shanghai Masters in ignominy for the third year running on Monday, appearing to lose heart during his first-round defeat.

"And only through understanding work ethic and scheduling and whatever it might be, creating the right team around himself, only then can you unlock the potential really".

Wawrinka had chances - he had two break points at 3-3 in the second set - but Coric secured his first ever victory over the Swiss having won the first four games in the decider.

Meghan Markle appeared to wear the Queen's favorite nail polish, Essie Ballet slippers, for her royal wedding to Prince Harry . Ten-year-old Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, 14, will also be part of the wedding as special attendants .

Kyrgios then smashed an ace and turned to Dumusois to sarcastically ask "was that borderline poor?" and was rebuked. "You have no right to tell me that it's poor".

"It's interesting when you watch him, the umpires are watching him more closely than generally they watch the other end", Woodbridge told reporters at an event for next year's Australian Open.

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

He was also fined $US1,500 at the 2015 edition of the tournament after audibly swearing and complaining the event was a "circus".

Last week, Kyrgios ceded his spot as Australia's highest-ranked male player to Alex de Minaur following a defeat at the Japan Open.

Swedish umpire Mohamed Lahyani was reprimanded by U.S. Open organisers for going "beyond protocol" when he climbed down from his chair to give Nick Kyrgios a mid-match pep talk during his second round match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
