Nick Kyrgios self-destructs again at the Rolex Shanghai Masters

Nick Kyrgios during his Shanghai Masters exit

Borna Coric came from a set down to knock Stan Wawrinka out of the Shanghai Masters, while Milos Raonic and Nick Kyrgios were among those also eliminated.

The Swiss three-time major victor and former world number three, a wildcard in this tournament, was beaten 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 by 13th seed Borna Coric.

Past year he was fined $10,000 and forfeited his first-round loser's cheque following a decision to walk off after losing the first set against Steve Johnson.

Kyrgios, who this week lost his status as Australia's number one to 33rd-ranked Alex de Minaur, has a chequered history in Shanghai.

As the Chinese Masters event kicks-off in the city of Shanghai, a series of upsets take place on an opening day.

"I think it's really up to him where he wants to go and what his potential really holds", the 20-time Grand Slam champion, Federer, said.

"He can win bigger tournaments and do all these things", he added.

During the second set, Dumusois was overheard telling Kyrgios a point in the second set was "really borderline". That's how it is for him and Nick plays his best tennis when he's fresh, when he's enjoying himself and he's engaged.

Djokovic beats Coric to win Shanghai Masters crown
Coric didn't offer Federer a break point opportunity, while managing to break Federer's serve in the opening game of both sets. He is on a 17-match winning streak and is 26-1 in matches played since the start of Wimbledon.

In the current case, the company is reflecting the growth in the adoption of iOS 12 by the users of the iPhone 6 and later models. It is interesting to note that the adoption of iOS 11 reached 65% approximately four months after its release.

Kyrgios then smashed an ace and turned to Dumusois to sarcastically ask "was that borderline poor?" and was rebuked.

"It's interesting when you watch him, the umpires are watching him more closely than generally they watch the other end", Woodbridge told reporters at an event for next year's Australian Open.

The Croatian, 21, won 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 and will play Klahn in the next round.

Klahn beat the mercurial Aussie Nick Kyrgios for a similar 46 64 63 win, in just 78 minutes.

Kyrgios made no initial public comment after his defeat to qualifier Klahn, but has previously spoken of his intent to learn from Federer.

During his second-round match at the US Open in August, Kyrgios was given a pep-talk by umpire Mohamed Lahyani when he was trailing Pierre-Hugues Herbert by a set and a break.

He left the court using his mobile phone.

Regardless, now ranked 38, Kyrgios will need to work hard to grab a seeding for next year's Australian Open in Melbourne.
