Nick Kyrgios is no fan of short shorts. In fact, he detests them so much, he changed his shorts in the middle of a match at The Australian Open on Wednesday after complaining about his shorts being too small.
During a match against Pablo Cuevas, Kyrgios was complaining about his shorts causing him problems. The umpire Kyrgios the extra time to change his shorts. After leaving the court in white shorts, Kyrgios returned in black shorts and, for whatever reason, he went on a rampage after the wardrobe change. Cuevas protested with the umpire, but that was overruled and play continued. Kyrgios went on to win the match 6-4, 7-5, 7-6.
Kyrgios expanded on the incident later on. Via ESPN…
“Yeah, it’s probably not the best thing playing angry,” Kyrgios said after the match. “It does expend a lot of energy. In best-of-five tennis, you want to try to not use that much. You want to keep it all in the tank if you get that far.”
His complaints on the court about his short did not go unnoticed by those watching and tweeting about the match…

This has been quite a few couple of days for Kyrgios. He was also fined $4,340 for an audible obscenity in the first round.
