Tennis players should really be given a warning for this type of patterned behavior towards children. Not only does it look unprofessional and embarrassing, it's a bad look.

EDIT: Oh apparently he did receive one, well deserved.

I don't see a problem with this. He pointed out to the ball kid to bring him the towel twice; the first time when he pointed out, the ball kid did not notice it. He then told the ball kid to hurry up through his animated gestures. How the %@#& can he say what he wanted to say to the ball kid in spoken words; he does not speak Chinese and the ball kid does not understand Spanish.

Not the first time he has done this too


Can totally see why Kyrgios and Murray hate his guts.

Despicable behaviour
In this case, he was trailing in this match, so, he could not control him emotions and got mad.

Verdasco is indeed an arsehole and always has been. But so are Murray and Kyrgios.

Murray is far from an asshole.

He is one of the most respected/liked in the tour. He is all the female players favourite player and I dont think they would appreciate "assholes".

Not liking someone doesn't make them an asshole.

This should be heavily punished. One year suspension and a fine of 10% of annual prize money at a minimum. You're a very tough guy to behave like that to kids!

They are ball boys, not random children playing in the park.
Tournaments that make loads of money keep exploiting their free voluntary work, placing them in vicinity of 200 km/h flying projectiles and potentially nervous adrenaline pumped sportsman. No one cares about that, not parents, society, sjw crusaders and kids themselves are happy to do it.
15,16 y.o. kids are not so fragile. They can live with players telling them to hurry up.
