Marijuana and trains. Kyrgios had “his day” again in New York – Tennis – Sport

On Wednesday, Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios advanced to the 3rd round of men’s singles at the final Grand Slam tournament of the US Open season in New York over Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi (7:6 /3/, 6:4, 4:6, 6:4) and again presented his eccentricity.

During the duel, he complained to the empire referee Jaume Campistol that he could smell marijuana. He thought he was coming from the stands and asked for the attention of the audience. “You don’t want to alert anybody or anything?” Kyrgios asked the umpire during the second set.

Since Louis Armstrong’s court, where the controversial Australian played on Wednesday, is located near the refreshment area, Campistol told the tennis player that it could be a smell from the kitchen that resembles marijuana. “I certainly wouldn’t complain about the smell of food,” Kyrgios responded.

After the fight, the Australian recalled that he is an asthmatic. “When I run from side to side, I have trouble breathing. That’s why I don’t want to feel what I felt between exchanges,” he noted.

Twenty-three seeded Nick Kyrgios traditionally conducted “conversations” with himself and with people in the audience during the match. He also received a warning for using inappropriate language when projecting anger towards his lodge because someone in it did not support him enough. The Australian was also bothered by the surrounding noise, which many players struggle with during the US Open. On Wednesday, Kyrgios was disturbed by trains that run nearby.

“I had problems with concentration in the past, so I try to concentrate on every ball. However, it is extremely challenging as there are many distractions. To this it is necessary to add screams from the point of view. I have to be very careful what I say these days,” he added.
