Roger Federer warns Nick Kyrgios over work ethic after Shanghai Masters fiasco

4 Americans pull off upsets at Shanghai Masters

Nick Kyrgios' effort is under question again after an umpire suggested a point in the second set of his Shanghai Masters defeat was "really borderline".

"We don't really know and I don't think he really knows exactly what his potential is".

"When he's fresh we don't see him "leave the court" so to speak where his eyes wander; when he's playing fresh he's got the opponents in his sights".

"I think it's really up to him where he wants to go and what his potential really holds", said the 20-time Grand Slam victor.

It didn't end there as Kyrgios turned to Dumusois after hitting an ace and sarcastically asked: "Was that borderline poor?".

The 23-year-old rattled off another three aces to close out the game, pointing at the official each time.

He later cautioned the umpire: "You know I literally could just go to the ATP office after this and say I just felt put down from your comment and you'd be in trouble, right?"

"I'm not going to do it, but I'm just saying".

Shanghai is not the only scene of a Kyrgios controversy.

In that game, in which the un-seeded German dismantled Kyrgios in just 48 minutes, Kyrgios appeared to walk off court before Zverev had completed his service game, leading to a chorus of boos.

A year ago he was fined after he walked off mid-way through his first-round match, and in 2016 he was suspended and fined after being accused of giving away points in another defeat.

And in 2015, he was fined USD1,500 for using obscenities during a match and calling the event a "circus".

The talented but erratic Kyrgios has played in Shanghai four times with his best showing being two second-round finishes.

Sam Querrey and Taylor Fritz both won in straight sets at the Shanghai Masters on Monday, setting up a second-round match between the Americans.

It was the first of a number of exchanges between the pair about Dumusois' initial comment.

Alex de Minaur starts his campaign on Tuesday against Vasek Pospisil.
