"I've been an emotional player my whole career. Hopefully, I'll be able to manage it better in the future. It's a work in progress. I'm trying to get better at it every time I step on the court. But it's something that's always been there," said the lanky, 6-foot-4 Kyrgios, who is frequently mentioned as one of biggest potential future stars of the game.

"I'm probably expecting a lot out of myself at these sort of tournaments," he said. "But I need to understand I'm still young. It's going to take a long time. It's a long journey."

Youzhny, a two-time U.S. Open semifinalist, said he didn't pay much attention to how close he came to a default victory.

"You try to play your game — some presents from him are good," he said. "But it didn't help me with the result."
