Nick Kyrgios takes wildcard into Moscow

4 Americans pull off upsets at Shanghai Masters

After her latest win Wang said she was playing the best tennis of her career, adding she felt more "confidence" on court and was hitting the ball more aggressively.

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

The Australian suffered a third contentious Shanghai Masters exit in as many appearances after his efforts in a first-round loss against world No 104 Bradley Klahn were described as "borderline" by umpire Damien Dumusois.

The verbal sparring continued at the next change of ends as Kyrgios queried whether he meant "borderline good or bad" and was told "you know exactly what I meant, Nick".

"I'm not going to do it, but I'm just saying".

"I think it's really up to him where he wants to go and what his potential really holds", said the 20-time Grand Slam victor. The Serbian, who has burst back to form this year, winning Wimbledon and the US Open, broke the Frenchman in the fifth game on the way to a 6-3 7-5 victory to ease into round three.

Republicans enjoy 'Brett boost' after Supreme Court win dents Democrats' poll surge
Circuit has received complaints about Brett Kavanaugh's statements during hearings on his confirmation to the U.S. For the first time, white men are outnumbered by women and minorities on the Democrat ticket in House races.

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

A year ago in Shanghai, having received a warning for smashing two balls out of court in frustration, Kyrgios marched off midway through his first-round match against Steve Johnson.

Borna Coric came from a set down to knock Stan Wawrinka out of the Shanghai Masters, while Milos Raonic and Nick Kyrgios were among those also eliminated.

In that game, in which the un-seeded German dismantled Kyrgios in just 48 minutes, Kyrgios appeared to walk off court before Zverev had completed his service game, leading to a chorus of boos. At the recent US Open, a disinterested Kyrgios was given a controversial mid-match pep talk by an umpire as he drifted towards a second-round defeat.

Now ranked 38th in the world, Kyrgios is in danger of going into next year's Australian Open unseeded, having reached the fourth round this year after winning his first home tournament in Brisbane.

Kyrgios is in a significant slump and now has lost the No.1 Australian ranking to Alex de Minaur.
