Kyrgios beats hasty Shanghai retreat for third year running

Kyrgios ousted in Shanghai Masters

"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. For the third consecutive year, the temperamental Australian's exit was shrouded in controversy.

Last year, having earlier received a warning for smashing two balls out of court in frustration, he stormed off midway through his first-round match against Steve Johnson.

"Nick - last point was really borderline", Dumusois said after the world no.104 aced Kyrgios to make it 2-1 in the second set. "You have no right to tell me that it's poor", he told the French official.

This year, the troubled talent again found himself in hot water in Shanghai on Monday during his loss at the hands of Bradley Klahn.

IMF's Lagarde warns trade, currency wars could be detrimental for growth
The IMF said that global growth rates have hit a plateau at 3.7%, and would continue to remain at this level in 2019-'20. The country's Gross Domestic Product growth rate accelerated to 8.2% in the first quarter of 2018-'19.


Dumusois told Kyrgios a point in the second set was "really borderline", appearing to suggest a lack of effort.

Doubles great Woodbridge says Kyrgios, who this week lost the top Australian ranking to Alex de Minaur, gets singled out.

Federer added: "He can win bigger tournaments and do all these things. He needs to do like any other player needs to go through in order to be successful".

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.

Republicans enjoy 'Brett boost' after Supreme Court win dents Democrats' poll surge
While their chances in the House are still seen as good, Republicans are feeling better about the upper chamber. Fifty-two percent said they believed the women versus 38 percent who said found Kavanaugh most credible.


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.

Todd Woodbridge believes Nick Kyrgios is copping extra scrutiny from umpires but doesn't help himself by the way he engages with them. Scheduling is huge for him.

He said Kyrgios looked "tired and jaded" at this stage in the season and that brings out the worst in him.

"When he's fresh we don't see him "leave the court" so to speak where his eyes wander; when he's playing fresh he's got the opponents in his sights".

PlayStation Network will finally let you change your old screen name
It will also be compatible with a "large majority" of "the most played PS4 games that were released before this date". The first time PSN users change their Online ID it will be free but after that PSN users will charged.


Kyrgios made no initial public comment after his defeat to qualifier Klahn, but has previously spoken of his intent to learn from Federer.
