Kyrgios fined after controversial Shanghai exit

Nick Kyrgios said he has been struggling with a stomach bug

Australian firebrand Nick Kyrgios apologised and said he had been unwell after he stormed off court to loud boos midway through his opening match at the Shanghai Masters.

As a result, sources at the tournament say that Kyrgios's first-round prize money of $22,125 (£16,755) will not be paid out, and that he will also receive a $10,000 (£7,570) fine for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Kyrgios' immediate playing future is again under threat following his latest retirement which came after he lost the first-set tie break to American Steve Johnson.

"I've been battling a stomach bug for the past 24 hours and I tried to be ready but I was really struggling on the court today which I think was pretty evident from the first point", he said.

The world number 21 rowed with spectators and was accused of giving away points in a defeat at the same Shanghai event a year ago.

The Australian was consequently suspended.

There were 24 places in the rankings between number two Federer and Schwartzman and a significant height difference - Federer towering over the 170cm (five foot seven inch) Argentine.

But he seemed untroubled by the injury when they entered the first-set tie break, but like in the final in Beijing, his temper soon got the better of him, after he was angered by the unsettled crowd and the umpire.

Still Schwartzman refused to go quietly in the second set, before Federer went through 7-6, 6-4. I'm good at hitting a tennis ball at the net.

"Obviously didn't have a great one a year ago, obviously got suspended after that".

"(It) will be number one four times in my career at the end of the season with so many years of difference (between the first time and this), I think that is something very hard".

US Open finalist Kevin Anderson of South Africa began by defeating Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 6-3, 6-1, and Ryan Harrison of the United States beat local wildcard Zhang Ze 6-2, 6-3.

Kyrgios withdrew from the event's doubles and has not posted on social media about the fine, but did add that he was "Brisbane bound" on Wednesday night after he announced he would play at January's Brisbane International.
