Nick Kyrgios has brushed off another row with tennis officials to become one of three Australians who will play in the last 32 of the US Open men's singles.

Kyrgios staged a pre-match protest over a logo dispute before eventually toeing the line and notching a comfortable 6-4 6-2 6-4 win over French wildcard Antoine Hoang.

The walking controversy took to The Grandstand court with the words 'Just Do You' - a cheeky play on Nike's trademark 'Just Do It' - emblazoned on the back of his collar.

The tournament supervisor instructed Kyrgios to change the shirt after the warm-up, claiming the slogan was a dress code breach.
