Kyrgios was asked after his match against Jubb that it appeared he spat towards a spectators, to which he replited: “Of one of the people disrespecting me, yes. I would not be doing that to someone who was supporting me.”

He added: “I’ve been dealing with hate and negativity for a long time, so I don’t feel like I owed that person anything.

“He literally came to the match to not even support anyone really, just to stir up disrespect. That’s fine, but if I give it back to you, that’s just how it is.”
