Kyrgios' match against Klahn was marked with a controversy as the Australian was clearly frustrated after being told by chair umpire Damien Dumusois that his last point of the third game of the second set was "really borderline".

Todd Woodbridge believes Nick Kyrgios is copping extra scrutiny from umpires but doesn't help himself by the way he engages with them.

"It hasn't been the year he'd like and I think next year it's about a focus on slams and actually performing and going deep in those", he said.

"When he's fresh we don't see him "leave the court" so to speak where his eyes wander; when he's playing fresh he's got the opponents in his sights".

"You know exactly what I meant, Nick".

Kyrgios then smashed an ace and turned to Dumusois to sarcastically ask "was that borderline poor?" and was rebuked.

Kyrgios was infuriated by the French chair umpire's comment, ultimately threatening him with action.

"You know I literally could just go to the ATP office after this and say I just felt put down from your comment and you'd be in trouble, right?" he said.
The win continues an impressive run of recent form in Asia for the 24 year-old, who beat world number 18 Jelena Ostapenko in Wuhan and stunned world number seven Petra Kvitova in Beijing. The talented but erratic Kyrgios has played in Shanghai four times with his best showing being two second-round finishes.

He was then fined $16,500 for his behaviour in the 6-3, 6-1 defeat.

With his ranking at 38 in the world, Kyrgios is now in danger of not being seeded for the Australian Open in January, with the top 32 players guaranteed to be seeded for the season's opening grand slam. Sanghai is not the only scene of a Kyrgios controversy.

He was then fined after he quit his first-round tie against Steve Johnson a year ago after losing the opening set.

During his second-round match at the US Open in August, Kyrgios was given a pep-talk by umpire Mohamed Lahyani when he was trailing Pierre-Hugues Herbert by a set and a break.

Last week, Kyrgios ceded his spot as Australia's highest-ranked male player to Alex de Minaur following a defeat at the Japan Open.
