Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live, Bartoli said Kyrgios, 23, and 31-year-old world number 44 Gael Monfils were "pathetic", adding they "can't grow up".

Asked by fellow commentator John McEnroe whether she put enigmatic Frenchman Gael Monfils in the same basket, Bartoli slammed both stars as "childish".

"Who are you to judge the way we go about things?" he wrote. Who are you to tell us how to do things, when you have no idea what we have been through? The other three guys are, I think, still playing really good.

"We get it, we know you have to remain relevant, but I'll give you a heads up, we don't care what you have to say".

"It's easy to criticise people when you don't know them". He's a great returner.

Kyrgios, seeded 15, arrived at Wimbledon in good form after strong runs on the grass in Stuttgart and at Queen's Club.

Looking utterly disinterested, Kyrgios gifted Nishikori a second service break - and effectively the set with a 5-1 advantage - when he fired a 215kph second-serve double-fault on break point.

"The first two sets, I was pretty impressed with my performance", Kyrgios said after progressing to a meeting tonight with Kei Nishikori.

That tweet was responding to Avenatti's earlier tweet, in which he said that "only a street fighter" can take on Trump. He said he wants to stop Trump before the country "and its principles will be in pieces".

The carefree way in which he began the third set, which saw him go for two between-the-leg trick shots on one point (which he lost), dissipated nearly immediately after he broke Haase in the first game.

Win or lose, the 2016 Wimbledon junior finalist has assured himself another career-high ranking inside the world's top 70. He's serving a lot better now.

"This is a maybe a slam he hasn't done well at". "I came out really good".

Kyrgios is one of the players being tipped as a potential champion here but said it was still too early to get excited about anyone else than the usual suspects.

Kyrgios accepts he must control his emotions in order to survive what shapes as his sternest test yet of his title credentials.

"It's hard for me to find the balance sometimes".

"I mean, Federer is unbelievable". Obviously getting broken first game didn't help me.

A breakthrough win over Nishikori, the 24th seed this year, would leave Kyrgios facing either German fourth seed Alexander Zverev or big-hitting Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis for a quarter-final berth.
