The usually…very vocal…tennis player was playing against top-seed Novak Djokovic and during the second set, went up to the umpire to loudly demonstrate how an apparent drunk woman in the crowd was messing up his play.
"She's drunk out of her mind and talking to me in the middle of a game. She's the one who looks like she's had 700 drinks."

“She’s distracting me when I’m serving in a Wimbledon final. There’s no other bigger occasion, you didn’t believe me and then she did it again. It nearly cost me the game. Why is she still here? She’s drunk out of her mind in the first row and speaking to me in the middle of a game. What’s acceptable?”
“Nothing is acceptable.”
“Ok, so kick her out.”
“I don’t know which one it is.”
“I know exactly which one it is. The one in the dress..with the…the one who looks like she’s had about 700 drinks bro.”
After this, the Australian lost the second set, to which Kyrgios took it out on his coaches and support staff.
Social media took note of Kyrgios’ game and reactions took a wide range of viewpoints. Especially considering Prince George is in attendance.
I hope Prince William doesn't do a massive fart just as Kyrgios is about to serve.

Kyrgios is such a monumental a**hole. Imagine hurling constant foul-mouthed abuse in a Wimbledon final at your own support team/family for YOUR bad shots?

Kyrgios gonna lose this final just to spite his people

Fair play to the woman in the crowd who looks like she's had, according to Nick Kyrgios, '700 drinks'. Some effort. #Wimbledon

Kyrgios complaining about a specific spectator.
"She's drunk out of her mind in the first row, talking to me in the middle of the game… The one with the dress, the one who looks like she's had about 700 drinks, bro!"
That's no way to talk about the Duchess of Cambridge, Nick.
