It’s like watching a three year old, stamping his feet in tantrum because he can’t have everything his own way!

It's intentional. If he simply kept his head down and then lost straight up he wouldn't have any excuses for the L.

Instead he creates a circus and then blames the circus for the loss.

It's all about protecting his own ego.

And he gets the attention anyway. Any publicity is good publicity.

Kyrgios was not happy with music, walkie-talkie sound from Bernardes (stupid mistake by the umpire). Then he (according to Bernardes) talked about him (Bernardes) with someone in the crowd.
But is that a reason for a warning? Kyrgios threw the racquet, and then looked at Bernardes as if he was scared of a warning, which he didn't get for racquet abuse, but then gets for talking to the audience? It feels very strange to me. Given that it was the same umpire who gave him a point penalty in IW in a tie-break... you'd think it'd be different. At least it seamed that way when there wasn't a penalty for the racquet abuse; I thought Bernardes was trying to manage the situation and then it escalated like hell.

This is fun though right? That's why we watch Nick. And occasionally he absolutely blows the best players in the world off the court. But ultimately, it's all entertainment
Nick has a career in WWE if he ever wants it. He knows how to play with a crowd. lol

Pro tennis players are not known for their exciting personalities last time I checked
But most players have a full range of responses to situations, whereas Kyrgios only has one response - anger, so very predictable.

Kyrgios is basically rude. Ok the umpire messed up. Big deal. Generally, he's a good umpire. Nick is always crying that people hold his mistakes against him.

Its quite a small crowd in the Sinner-Kyrgios match, very large gaps in the stands at each end of the court.
The sides are fairly full, but not the ends....

I mean....

The purpose of WC is for tournaments to bring in players that the fans want to see.

... so unfortunately based on that Nick is going to get WC's whenever he wants.
I like your dog bro.
