Cash explained what he meant by “fraud”. He said that Kyrgios did more than just try to mentally outplay Tsitsipas.

“Tsitsipas would get on the phone, go over there and start complaining, he was right in front of him – that’s part of the game, that’s what he does, and I think there’s a limit to that.

“I don’t have a problem with playing skills, but when it comes to this level, I think it just gets out of hand.

“Be that as it may, the referee lost control. The kids with the ball were running around the court while Kyrgios served, he didn’t slow down for any of it. It’s taken me too far now.”

Kyrgios, known for his temper on the court, was also punished for spitting on the fans during a match earlier in the tournament. He also referred to the woman of the line as a “snitch”.
