Nick Kyrgios has been involved in fresh controversy after he was disqualified from his Rome Open second round match on Thursday.

The Australian sent a forehand wide to hand a break back to Casper Ruud early in the third set at 1-1, after Kyrgios had responded to losing the first set 6-3 with victory in the second set tie-break.

Kyrgios vented his frustration towards the crowd and chair umpire, and proceeded to throw his tennis racket to the ground.

The 24-year-old then kicked over a water bottle and threw a chair stool onto the tennis court.

Kyrgios had received multiple code violations earlier in the match and the umpire handed him a game penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.

After throwing the chair, he then packed his bag and walked off the court, which led to him being defaulted from the match.
