06/20 13:00 CDT Kyrgios accuses officials of 'rigging' match at Queen's Club Kyrgios accuses officials of 'rigging' match at Queen's Club LONDON (AP) --- Nick Kyrgios swore at officials and accused them of "rigging" his first-round match at the Queen's Club grass-court tournament in his latest outburst. The outspoken Australian, who went on to win the match, launched an expletive-ridden rant at umpire Fergus Murphy after missing a set point against Roberto Carballes Baena, claiming his Spanish opponent had double-faulted. After Murphy issued a code violation for unsportsmanlike conduct, Kyrgios continued his tirade, saying "it's a joke, man. It's a serious joke" and adding: "Like, your hat looks ridiculous, also. It's not even sunny." After another point, Kyrgios said: "The ball was this far out on the second serve. I'm going. I'm not going to give 100% when I've got linesmen rigging the game, I don't want to play. "You wonder why I don't try half the time. Literally the set had finished, he double-faulted. Why am I playing at 5-5? Absolute joke." Later in the match, Kyrgios then berated himself for hitting a poor lob to gift Carballes Baena a point and made reference to a computer game. "So lazy, do something, so lazy you are," he said to himself. "You were playing FIFA until 3 a.m., what do you expect?" In the final game, Kyrgios --- at 40-0 down --- began returning from just outside the service line. He still won the match 7-6 (4), 6-3. ___ More AP Tennis: https://www.apnews.com/apf-Tennis and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
