(CNN)Nick Kyrgios is no stranger to sparking drama and controversy on the tennis court, and on Sunday it was a verbal spat with a heckling fan that animated the Australian at the Miami Open.

The 23-year-old Kyrgios reacted after he was taunted by a spectator sat behind him in the first set of his 6-3 6-1 victory against Dusan Lajovic.
"Did you get a free ticket? Why are you watching me on a Sunday night?" Kyrgios shouted up to the stands. "You got nothing else to do on a Sunday night?"
    The man in return gestured at Kyrgios, who three points later shot back with "Bro, where's your fam?"
    While his female companion remained seated, the spectator was eventually escorted out by stewards and Kyrgios waved to him from the court.
