LIVE ON FOX SPORTS Aus­tralian play­ers were con­stantly be­ing quizzed on Kyr­gios’ be­hav­iour.

“You wouldn’t believe how many peo­ple ask us about it. Other play­ers, coaches ... it’s in­ter­est­ing,’’ Sto­sur said. ‘‘It’s def­i­nitely a hot topic.” Kyr­gios has been seek­ing coun­sel from Lley­ton He­witt both on and off court.

He­witt is also act­ing as a men­tor for Kyr­gios’ friend Bernard Tomic.

Kyr­gios’ dou­bles part­ner and the man un­wit­tingly dragged into the on-court sledge, Thanasi Kokki­nakis, said while peo­ple in the locker room were “dis­ap­pointed” with Kyr­gios’ be­hav­iour, he had not let it af­fect his prepa­ra­tion for the Open.

“Look ob­vi­ously it’s weird what he did … I’m fine, he apol­o­gised to me. I’ve played some good ten­nis,” he said.
