Nick Kyrgios of Australia reacts after a point against Bradley Klahn of the USA during their men's single round of 64 match at the Shanghai Masters October 8, 2018.

Also, 10th-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas beat Gael Monfils 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-4 and 13th-seeded Borna Coric of Croatia defeated wild-card entry Stan Wawrinka 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

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

"That's enough. I don't want to talk about that any more", Dumusois said.

He was fined a year ago after walking off the court during his first-round match.

"And only through understanding work ethic and scheduling and whatever it might be, creating the right team around himself, only then can you unlock the potential really".

The Australian, who at times appeared largely disinterested in his 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 loss to American qualifier Bradley Klahn, engaged in a heated argument with chair umpire Damien Dumusois over the comment.

Shanghai is not the only scene of a Kyrgios controversy.

Wawrinka had chances - he had two break points at 3-3 in the second set - but Coric secured his first ever victory over the Swiss having won the first four games in the decider.

Last month umpire Mohamed Lahyani was suspended from his next two scheduled tournaments after trying to encourage Kyrgios during a match at the US Open.

A 22-time grand slam champion - in double and mixed doubles - and former Davis Cup coach, Woodbridge said Kyrgios should next year try to focus his energies on the majors.

"He needs to do like any other player needs to go through in order to be successful".

"When I get aced ... very poor, like it's poor behaviour".

"But I think, you know, just the way he goes about things, I could take a leaf out of his book".

Woodbridge's comments come after Kyrgios's prolonged exchange with the chair umpire at the Shanghai Masters during his first round defeat to American qualifier Bradley Klahn.
