Nick Kyrgios beat Khachanov in New York, and as the match came to a close, Khachanov was waving to the fans and celebrating by smashing a few rackets before Kyrgios left the court. An offensive gesture that was observed.
The behavior of the Australian was condemned by John McEnroe: “In that situation, Nick Kyrgios didn’t perform well because he overreached. I can appreciate his annoyance with him, but you can’t steal the show from your adversary while he’s waving to the crowd.
After winning a fierce struggle, Karen Khachanov deserved to relax and take in the scenery. By his reaction, Kyrgios humiliated Khachanov.” Nick expressed his disappointment in him during the news conference: “In all honesty, I feel horrible.
I think I’ve let so many people down. The only competitions that truly matter to me are the Grand Slams. It feels as though you must restart everything right now. To get another shot, I’ll have to wait till the Australian Open.
It is painful and devastating. not only for me but for everyone who wants to see me succeed.”
Kyrgios‘s 2022 campaign
The US Open 2022 run of Nick Kyrgios was cut short in the quarterfinals. After defeating Daniil Medvedev, the Australian had become the odds-on favorite to win, but he fell short of the standard.
At Arthur Ashe Stadium, a magnificent Karen Khachanov prevailed in five sets to claim his regularity, while Kyrgios had to be content with the honor of arms. Canberra’s potential can optimistically look toward the future despite this heartbreaking loss.
Nick has a more professional attitude than in the past and the results of his labor were evident right away, in addition to being in the Top 20 of the ATP ranking. The fact that Kyrgios advanced to the Wimbledon final and seriously threatened a champion like Novak Djokovic is no accident. He also won the Washington ATP after a string of outstanding performances, as if that weren’t enough.
