Nick Kyrgios complains about smell of marijuana during US Open second round win

(CNN) — Nick Kyrgios was frustrated by the smell of marijuana coming from the stands during his second-round victory at the US Open on Wednesday.

The Australian, who beat France’s Benjamin Bonzi 7-6 (7-3), 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, made his voice heard during the match, even when he complained to the chair umpire smelled from the stands at the Louis Armstrong Arena.

“People don’t know that I’m very asthmatic, so when I’m running and I’m having trouble breathing, it’s probably not something I want to breathe between points,” he told reporters. reporters after the game.

The referee reminded fans to refrain from smoking on the pitch when play resumed.

The US Open crowd is known to be rowdy and the 27-year-old agreed the Grand Slam has a very different “vibe” to other tournaments.

CNN has contacted the US Open regarding Kyrgios’ complaints about the smell of marijuana.
It comes just over a week after the Kyrgios woman accused of having ‘700 drinks’ and being ‘totally drunk’ in this year’s Wimbledon final said she was suing the tennis player Australian for defamation.

Kyrgios was usually lively on the New York court, mumbling to himself and berating his box between the points. The referee penalized him for insulting someone in his team for not supporting him enough.

As his on-court antics were in full swing, so was his tennis. Kyrgios was tested by his talented opponent, but he showed devastating power and a newfound mental toughness that saw him reach his first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon in July.

He will now face American JJ Wolf in the next round, but says his own good form is putting more pressure on him than usual.

“It’s very stressful now because every game I play I expect to play too,” Kyrgios told reporters.

“Such a clean performance is unrealistic in a sport like this where you play day to day. I probably have to lower the expectation of playing like it’s a Wimbledon final every time. There are a lot of players capable who can play,” added Kyrgios. . .
