Up top after knocking out world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev at the US Open, Nick Kyrgios returned to give in to darker urges after being knocked out in the quarter-finals, in five sets, by Russia’s Karen Khachanov.
Very disappointed by the defeat, it was the racquets that suffered again: the one with which he finished the match and another that he picked up in the bag ended up destroyed on the floor.

“I feel like shit. I feel like I let so many people down. Now I think I have to play in Tokyo, but I think these four Grand Slams are the only ones that matter. . You have to start all over again, I have to wait for the Australian Open. I’m destroyed,” he said, who hoped to reach the final in New York after reaching the final at Wimbledon.
It’s unclear how many more tournaments Kyrgios will have this year.
