Nick Kyrgios lost to Roger Federer, 6-7(5), 7-5, 10-7, in the Laver Cup on Saturday – in part because he was distracted by the crowd.

As Kyrgios came off the court after the second set, TV cameras caught him telling his team that he was distracted by a “hot chick.”

“I lost concentration. I saw a really hot chick in the crowd,” Kyrgios said. “Like, I’m being jarringly honest – I’d marry her right now. Right now.”

Here’s a video of the moment:

Kyrgios later withdrew from the tournament with an injury.

It’s been a roller-coaster year for Kyrgios. He’s won two tournaments this season but was also thrown out of matches for temper tantrums and profane rants against umpires. He was hit with a $US113,000 fine for a meltdown at the Cincinnati Masters. And he found himself in the crosshairs of the ATP after he called the organisation “corrupt” at the US Open.
