Nick Kyrgios took his tennis court antics to a new level yesterday by asking a fan where he should serve.

The controversial Australian was serving to win the match in his Washington Open quarter-final clash against Slovakian Norbert Gombos, but before getting ready to start the point, the 24-year-old turned to the crowd and asked where he should place the shot.

Kyrgios took the advice of a spectator and hit an ace past Gombos, to take the win in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3.

He then ran to the back of the court to hug the woman who had told him where to serve, celebrating his win in jubilant fashion.

Kyrigos has been up to all sorts of tricks on the curt during the Washington Open, including striking the ball between his own legs, jumping to gain power from forehands and unorthodox backhands.

The Australian is looking for his second win on the ATP Tour this year and will take on Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece in the semi-finals of the competition.
