Nick Kyrgios was arguing with the crowd and the umpire in the usual fashion during Sunday’s Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final which went the way of Novak Djokovic for the seventh time.
There was one particular woman in the crowd who he took a disliking too and she ended up being temporarily ejected from Center Court.
The woman in question was Polish medical lawyer Ania Palus. The 32-year-old claims that she only wanted to support the Australian tennis player but the heat may have affected her behavior.
Kyrgios had complained to the umpire that Palus had been making noise whilst he was serving and it almost cost him a game.
“It’s the woman who looks like she had about 700 drinks bro,” Kyrgios told the umpire.
Palus has since carried out an interview with The Sun where she explained that she was trying to support him.
“I wanted to show we were for him, I wanted to encourage him,” Palus said.
“I wanted to give him support. Maybe I took it too far but I only had good intentions,” she said.
Ms Palus said that she drank a Pimms and a rose, after the tennis player called her ‘drunk out of her mind’.
“It’s the temperature for me, I had no hat,” she said. “I’m really sorry.”
She was given water and allowed back into the match after about 15 minutes in order to watch the rest of the final.
It was the third set when Kyrgios started to complain about Palus, saying: “She’s distracting me when I’m serving in a Wimbledon final,” he fumed at the umpire about the spectator.
“There’s no other bigger occasion, you did not believe me and then she did it again. It nearly cost me the game.
“Why is she still here? She’s drunk out of her mind and speaking to me in the middle of a game. What’s acceptable?”
