Tennis bad boy
Kyrgios lost to two-time Wimbledon champion
And yesterday, he lost in the mixed doubles alongside partner Desirae Krawczyk before he openly flirted with her in the post-match press conference, saying, ‘We’ve got a club set up, it is going to be outrageous’.
Last night, the star was once again seen in the Wimbledon pub with US player Reilly Opelka, who lost to Canadian Milos Raonic in straight sets yesterday, but there was no sign of Krawczyk.
Australian tennis badboy Nick Kyrgios was again seen drinking at the Dog & Fox pub in Wimbledon last night following Thursday night’s defeat to Rafael Nadal in the second round
Kyrgios lost to two-time Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal in a bad-tempered three-hour match in the second round of the competition on Thursday, just hours after he was first seen in the Dog and Fox pub in the town at 11pm the night before.

Kyrgios also lost in the mixed doubles yesterday with partner Desirae Krawczyk to Marcus Daniell and Jennifer Brady and the Australian openly flirted with Krawczyk, 25, during the post match press conference.
Before the conference started, Kyrgios chatted to her about his plans for the evening – and asked her if she wanted to join him.
‘We’ve got a club set up, it’s going to be outrageous,’ Kyrgios said, not realising the microphones were on.
Despite their defeats, both Kyrgios and Opelka appeared to be in a cheerful mood at the pub, with the Australian pictured drinking pints of beer and what appeared to be spirits.

The 6ft-11in Opelka garnered his own attention from fans, one of whom was pictured taking a picture of the enormous 21-year-old.

However, although both men were seen happily chatting to other drinkers, a small crowd of revellers could reportedly be heard chanting ‘You’re s***’ while pointing at the Aussie.
The pair then left in a pair of taxis with a group of other drinkers to take them into central London to continue the party.
In Thursday’s defeat to Nadal, Kyrgios took the second set against the brilliant Spaniard but ended up losing 3-6, 6-3, 6-7, 6-7.
During the match, Kyrgios had served underarm, hit a 143mph second serve ace, abused the umpire, fired a return deliberately at Nadal, and been officially warned.
The star was first seen at the Dog and Fox the night before his crucial match with Nadal.
Sports commentator Miguel Seabra said on Twitter: ‘I just had a toast with Nick Kyrgios at the Dog & Fox. He is completely relaxed, laughing with friends, chatting with girls, drinking.
‘Quite an unorthodox preparation for tomorrow’s blockbuster, uh? I like it.’
Fans had a mixed reaction over the pre-match pub session, with some calling Kyrgios a ‘legend’ and others branding him a ‘disgrace’.
