Nick Kyrgios has fallen to world No 38 this season

Borna Coric of Croatia has eliminated Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland 2 sets to 1, to reach the 2nd round of the Shanghai Masters. Del Potro, the Shanghai third seed who was suffering with a cold and flu in Beijing, meets France's Richard Gasquet.

But Roger Federer has fired a warning to the Australian, urging him to focus on living up to his huge potential.

Kyrgios has been toppled as Australia's number one player with 19-year-old Alex de Minaur moving up to 33 in the world to take top spot for the first time in his career.

Kyrgios is making a habit of throwing tantrums way too often now, and especially in Shanghai for the last few years in succession.it's not helping him either.

Nick Kyrgios's effort is under the microscope again after an umpire suggested a point during his first-round Shanghai Masters defeat was "really borderline". "I think with Nick when he's fresh he plays great and it's about managing schedules as much as anything", Woodbridge said.

The verbal sparring continued at the next change of ends as Kyrgios queried whether he meant "borderline good or bad" and was told "you know exactly what I meant, Nick. Monday's controversy was also the second time within the last six weeks that Kyrgios" effort has been questioned by an official.

Only through understanding work ethic and scheduling, creating the right team around himself, only then can you unlock the potential really.

.

Last year, he was fined after he stormed off mid-way through his first-round match, with jeers and boos ringing in his ears from the crowd.

Now ranked 38th in the world, Kyrgios is in danger of going into next year's Australian Open unseeded, having reached the fourth round this year after winning his first home tournament in Brisbane.

"But there is still a process in place that he needs to do like any other player needs to go through in order to be successful". At the recent US Open, a disinterested Kyrgios was given a controversial mid-match pep talk by an umpire as he drifted towards a second-round defeat.

The Aussie, who has slipped to 38 in the ATP Rankings, crashed out of the Masters 1000 event at the hands of American qualifier Bradley Klahn and came under fire after repeatedly clashing with chair umpire Damien Dumusois throughout the match.
