Stefanos Tsitsipas has likened Nick Kyrgios to a “bully” after the pair’s explosive Wimbledon third-round match on Saturday night.

“I was aiming for the body of my opponent,” Tsitsipas said.

When asked why he was trying to hit Kyrgios, he added: “Just to stop. This needs to stop. Someone needs to sit down and talk with him. I don’t know what to say.

“I’m not used to playing this way but I cannot just sit there and act like a robot.

“It has happened like three or four times now.

“It starts to get to your nerves. You are out there doing your job and you have noise coming from the other side of the court for no reason.”

He added: “I don’t like bullys.”
