Sam Querrey, Taylor Fritz both win in straight sets at Shanghai Masters

Raonic and Kyrgios were both ousted in three sets by Mackenzie McDonald and fellow American qualifier Bradley Klahn respectively, but 10th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas was able to progress courtesy of a 7-6 (7-4) 4-6 6-4 success over Gael Monfils.

Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios' previous outbursts and bad behaviour have meant that umpires are probably keeping a closer eye on him than his opponents, according to compatriot Todd Woodbridge.

"We don't really know and I don't think he really knows exactly what his potential is".

Australian Nick Kyrgios was involved in a prolonged argument with French umpire Damien Dumusois during his first-round exit at the Shanghai Masters.

"And only through understanding work ethic and scheduling and whatever it might be, creating the right team around himself, only then can you unlock the potential really".

Butler aggressively re-joins Wolves; Heat ready to talk trade
Coaches and players were largely speechless at Butler's tour de force throughout the workout, league sources said. At times, Butler has been working out away from the team at the facility since his trade request three weeks ago.

The Australian, who is ranked 38th in the world, responded by saying he did not care, before adding: "You have no right to tell me it's poor".

Coric, who had failed to win a match in his last two appearances in Beijing and Shenzhen, saved two break points at 3-3 in the second set and clinched the first four games of the decider to record his 32nd match win of the season.

During the second set, Dumusois was overheard telling Kyrgios a point in the second set was "really borderline".

He later sarcastically asked Dumusois "was that borderline?" after serving an ace.

"It hasn't been the year he'd like and I think next year it's about a focus on slams and actually performing and going deep in those", he said.

Melania Trump Wants #MeToo Accusers to Show "Hard Evidence"
First Lady Melania Trump said women who make sexual assault accusations "need to be heard" - but so do men. Trump was away on a trip to Kenya last week as Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing took place.

The year before, Kyrgios was fined and subsequently banned from the ATP tour for eight weeks after being accused of tanking in a second-round loss to Mischa Zverev in 2016.

Shanghai is not the only scene of a Kyrgios controversy.

Past year he was fined after he walked off mid-way through his first-round match, and in 2016 he was suspended and fined after being accused of giving away points in another defeat.

And in 2015, he was fined USD1,500 for using obscenities during a match and calling the event a "circus".

Kyrgios has recently lost his status as Australia's No 1 to Alex de Minaur.
