'OUTSTANDING UMPIRING'
Did anyone catch the name of the umpire who ignored the fact that Nick Kyrgios hit a ball up into the stands at the start of the fourth set through frustration ? Obviously part of the same Tennis Australia umpiring section that allowed the cheater from Bela...

'INTELLIGENCE' ?

'AUSSIE OR SPANIARD' ?
In a point of difference to other emerging Australians, De Minaur
