You can’t be Kyrgios. Is our boy the new McEnroe?

IF IT was a debate it was pretty one-sided.

The continuing 'spoilt brat" antics of young Australian Nick Kyrgios was the hot topic of conversation after another run-in with the referee and linesman during his 7-6 6-3 6-4 win over Argentine Juan Monaco in the second round at Wimbledon.

And the verdict - certainly on social media - was clearcut, with the overwhelming majority suggesting Kyrgios should pull his head in and show some respect.

Despite the view, no doubt all eyes will again be on the 20-year-old when he takes on No.8 seed Milos Raonic in the third round tonight.

The Canadian ended Kyrgios' run last year at the quarter-final stage after the young Aussie had knocked out then-world No.1 Rafael Nadal.

Fellow Aussies Bernard Tomic and Sam Stosur will also be in action tonight, with Tomic to take on top seed Novak Djokovic and Stosur to meet unseeded American Coco Vandeweghe.
