Kyrgios tells the crowd to shut the f**k up in melbourne. nick kyrgios unleashed a flawless first set against rogerio dutra silva in the australian open but that didn't stop the no.17 seed from receiving a code violation early in the match. the aussie was serving for a 4-1 lead in the first set when he apparently told a member of the crowd to "shut the f**k up" during his service motion. #kyrgios #nickkyrgios #australianopen #ausopen #tennis
