Nick Kyrgios revved up a rowdy crowd in Rome that was chanting his name against Casper Ruud.

In a heartbeat, the racket flies (far too close to the  line umpire). A small racket bag stand goes flying into the middle of the court.

And then Kyrgios packs up his bag, shakes the hand of his opponent, the umpire and the supervisor, leaves the court and forfeits.

He received 20,000 Euros in fines, loses the 45 points he earned and is on the hook for his hotel bill.
