Rennae Stubbs calls out Nick Kyrgios for 'embarassing' Wimbledon final behavior

Australian tennis legend Rennae Stubbs wasn't impressed with Nick Kyrgios' behavior during the Wimbledon final as she thought it was "embarassing" to see the 27-year-old yelling toward his box. In the Wimbledon final, Novak Djokovic handed Kyrgios a 4-6 6-3 6-4 7-6 (3) loss.

Kyrgios, who was playing his first Grand Slam final, was struggling to keep his emotions under control and he was absolutely furious after getting broken in the ninth game of the third set. Kyrgios was 40/0 up in the ninth game of the third set but then missed out on multiple game points and paid the price for it by losing the third set.

"Honestly, this behavior of yelling at your box because they aren't doing what u want, is actually beyond ridiculous. THEY CANT READ YOUR MIND! Yes this is his way of dealing with pressure, I get it but this is straight up constant abuse to people that love you, its embarrassing," Stubbs tweeted.

Djokovic shared nice words to Kyrgios

Kyrgios actually competed extremely well against Djokovic and was certainly a big test for the Serb.

After the final, Djokovic tried to comfort Kyrgios by telling him he will certainly have more deep Grand Slam runs. "I know it is tough to find consolation words after a tough loss like this, but you showed why you deserve to be one of the best players in the world, particularly on this surface," Djokovic told Kyrgios on-court.

"Congrats to you and your team, and I wish you all the best. I really respect you a lot. I think you are a phenomenal tennis player and athlete, an amazing talent. You have been hearing that for many years, but now, everything has started to come together for you so I am sure we are going to see much of you in the later stages of a Grand Slam."
