US Open: Nick Kyrgios was bothered by the smell of … cannabis during the match

This is the kind of joke that can make you smile. This Wednesday, August 31, Nick Kyrgios met in the 2nd round of the US Open with the Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi. If he managed to advance to the next round by winning his match (7-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-4), the Australian, however, was bothered by the untimely smell of marijuana. And it even caused him breathing problems, as he explained after the meeting. “People don’t know, but I’m a big asthmatic,” he said in the preamble in comments posted by RMC Sport. “When I run from side to side, I get breathing problems, and that’s probably not what I want to breathe between points,” the Australian champion continued. He then addressed the American fans of the US Open with a bit of a tackle.

“It’s a very different atmosphere than anywhere else. I feel like Wimbledon was so clean. The Australian Open, you kind of expect that as an Australian. But it’s just noisy in here. I can barely hear if I’m getting a point or not. Half the time I can’t even hear my command because it’s so loud all the time,” he complained.

According to Nick Krygios, his first match in the tournament, played on the Arthur Ashe court, was even worse. “Ash was incredibly loud. I couldn’t hear anything. Constant noise. Something is going on, sirens. Today on Armstrong you hear trains and people. keep your head down and play point by point, try to get out of certain situations. It’s hard because there are a lot of distractions “There’s obviously a lot of squabbling too,” concluded the world’s No. 25. In the next round, he will face an even more hostile atmosphere as he takes on American J.J. Wolfe, who must have the support of the public.
