The 23-year-old was playing a doubles match alongside American Taylor Fritz in Miami on Sunday, when the pair were defeated by Portugal's Joao Sousa and Argentina's Guido Pell 10-8 in a nail biting third set tiebreak. Kyrgios asked the spectator.
After the first, Kyrgios exchanged words with a member of the crowd, who apparently made fun of the Australian's haircut.
"He literally just said, 'You're a dick, '" Kyrgios said.
Kyrgios went on to comfortably win the match against Dusan Lajovic.
Kyrgios laughed as he traded barbs with the spectator, who stood and appeared to gesture for the Australian to come closer, while the unfortunate woman sitting next to him looked like she wished she was elsewhere.
In response, Kyrgios had another crack: "Sunday night, and you're still out here watching me?"
'Bro, where's your fam?' sniped Kyrgios.
As security escorted the man from the court a short time later, Kyrgios waved goodbye and the crowd cheered.
Post-match, Kyrgios gave his side of the story as to what caused the brouhaha.
