Nick Kyrgios criticized the chair umpire's handling of Mikael Ymer's disqualification at the Lyon Open.
Nick Kyrgios is one of the players who has been disqualified from a tournament, with the situation he experienced at the 2019 Rome Open being particularly remembered. During his match against Casper Ruud, he was disqualified for breaking his racket, kicking bottles, and throwing a chair.

The outburst that Mikael Ymer had on Wednesday during his participation in the ATP 250 Lyon Open led the chair umpire to make the decision to disqualify him after he struck the umpire's chair with his racket while playing against Frenchman Arthur Fils.
Australian player Kyrgios commented on the situation on social media and showed his support for the Swede.
"Very true what Mikael is saying. Me also can't believe why the chair umpire does not go down to check the mark," Rohan Bopanna commented on Krygios’ post.
