    You're right, but he has previous of attitude issues and bans.

    No lasting damage to the referees eye. The guy sounds sincere enough for me.

    I apologise.

    I forgot that the kid is the real victim here.
    No-one's actually said that.

    The difference is, Nick Kyrgios has previous for unruly behaviour so he's going to be cut less slack than someone who's never been involved in any disciplinary matters before.

    I think it was a complete accident after a bit of petulance. Of course he should be punished, and he has, but for me it was a million to one chance that he hit the umpire in the eye.

    I'm pretty sure he wont do it again, although if he does then of course he should be slaughtered.

    He's a 17 year old who's made a bad decision under severe pressure representing his country.

    I'd cut him a little slack here.

    After day one, the teams were level at 1-1.

    The doubles match is currently one set all and 5-5 in the third set.

    No Andy Murray or Milos Raonic involved in this tie so it's very much a second string for both sides.

    The winner plays France in the quarter finals.
    Hopefully he is saving himself for a good crack at the 5th major.

    Just noticed on BBC Sport that the umpire needed surgery for a fractured eye-socket ...

    A bit more serious than 'a bit of petulance'. The guy should have been suspended.

    There must be something really annoying about Kyle Edmund - his latest opponent, Adrian Mannarino, was punted out of the Delray Beach Open for smashing a ball out of court - this time without doing serious damage to anyone, thank goodness - at 6-3, 5-0, 15-0. He'd already kicked a chair and unsuccessfully aimed 'a bit of petulance' at a ball-boy.

    Maybe he's counting on the same misplaced leniency that was shown to the Canadian?

    Tennis needs to stamp on these people. Hard.
