LONDON: Serbia's Viktor Troicki launched a vintage tennis rant at Wimbledon on Thursday, blasting an umpire as an "idiot" and lambasting him for being "the worst in the world".

Fiery Troicki, the 25th seed, slumped to a 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 defeat to Spain's Albert Ramos Vinolas after slipping to match point down on a controversial over-rule by umpire Damiano Torella.

A serve from the Spaniard had been called out but the decision was corrected and Troicki was furious, carrying the ball back to the chair on Court 17, telling the official to "look at it".

"You're the worst umpire in the world, you're so bad," screamed Troicki, who received a warning for his behaviour after he smashed the ball out of the court.

He lost the match on the next point but continued his rant as Torella climbed down from his perch.

"You're horrible, you know what you did. You are the worst ever, you're an idiot," he said.

"You didn't see anything in the match. You made about 30 mistakes for him and for me."
