Nick Kyrgios hit out at a "rowdy" Wimbledon crowd after coming through a five-set thriller with Brit Paul Jubb in the first round.
The Australian was forced to come from behind to avoid a surprise exit, ultimately prevailing 3-6 6-1 7-5 6-7 (3-7) 7-5 on No.3 Court on Tuesday.
In a typically tempestuous performance, the world number 40 was frustrated by certain members of a partisan home crowd.
Kyrgios also accused a line judge of being a "snitch" as he aimed his grievances at the chair umpire, also calling for vocal spectators to be ejected.
The 27-year-old let his feelings be known after wrapping up his victory in just over three hours and paid tribute to his opponent.
"It was tough, he's a local wildcard, had nothing to lose and he played exceptional tennis at times," he stated. "He's going to be a good player for sure, I'm just happy to get through.
"The crowd was pretty rowdy. A couple of people were not shy in criticising me so that one is for you, you know who you are.
"Playing here is a lot of fun, Wimbledon over the last couple of years has been strange. We had bubbles last year and no ranking points this year, but it's special.
"It would've been a tough loss to take and I'm happy to get through. I just talk a lot on the court but off the court I'm not too bad."
Kyrgios will face either Serbia's Filip Krajinovic or the Czech Republic's Jiri Lehecka in the second round on Thursday.
