Women's world number one Naomi Osaka of Japan also had to double up as she reached her maiden Rome quarter-final with a pair of 6-3 6-3 wins, overpowering Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova before sweeping aside Romania's Mihaela Buzarnescu.

"I don't think he should be suspended, personally, because he walked off the court", said the Swiss.

"He's a champion of the sport, one of the greatest we'll ever see. No matter how many Grand Slams he wins, he will never be the greatest to me", he added. Why are you walking across court as I am serving?

The 22-year-old Coric was playing his only match of the day and appeared fresher than the 37-year-old Federer at times.

"It gets me so vexed, I'm like angry now that I just hear that name". These guys - they're not bad guys.

"I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks he should be suspended for at least half a year", the 76th-ranked Norwegian said postmatch, according to Ben Rothenberg of The New York Times.

Kyrgios has had a tense relationship with Nadal, who accused him of "lacking respect for the public, the opponent and himself" after being beaten by the Australian at the Mexican Open in March.

"He's just my polar opposite, like literally my polar opposite".

"He's super salty", Kyrgios said.

Of Nadal, Kyrgios was equally critical, but for different reasons.

"When he wins, it's fine". Emotions got the better of me and I just wanted to say that the atmosphere was insane out there today, just super unfortunate that it had to end in a default.

Several hours after slamming a ball over the Foro Italico's stands and bending over to turn his backside on Medvedev, Kyrgios branded Nadal a sore loser and the Spaniard's uncle Toni an "idiot" for saying the Australian lacks education. I'm like, 'Bra (brother), I did 12 years at school, you idiot. I understand you're upset that I've beat your family again, but I'm not going to be the same as Nadal. "Why can't we just accept that?" Don't wait til you lose a match to say things.

"I feel bad for him, but something is failing, the ATP has given him too much hype, he plays very well, but with another mentality, he would aspire to the maximum, he should make an effort to change", Toni Nadal continued. But when he says something, it's like that's the only thing that matters. Then he picked up a white chair and flung it onto the court with his right hand.

"These guys show me no respect".

"Like any other practice day when you play twice a day, you finish the first session, take a shower, eat something, relax, get ready for the next one", said the 20-time Grand Slam victor.

Kyrgios has since apologized for his actions on social media.
