Australian tennis legend Mark Philippoussis has fired an ace at Nick Kyrgios, declaring he is a bad influence on kids - before revealing his blueprint for beating the controversial star.

Philippoussis, 45, - who made the final of Wimbledon in 2003, losing to Swiss superstar Roger Federer - pointed out impressionable young tennis fans are watching Kyrgios' every move.

Be it applauding errors, arguing with chair umpires or 'tanking' games to halt his opponents' momentum, Kyrgios' gamesmanship at Wimbledon has irked many - including the man they call 'Scud.'

'I don't mind people getting upset at a line call, or questioning something or smashing a racket, that's going to get it out of your system but I think it's the constant stuff that opponents have to deal with,' Philippoussis said in an extraordinary rant.

'Kids are watching, man, they can hear things, they've got the mics on the court ... you have to think about these things.'
