Tennis Player Accidentally Drills Umpire In Head At Australian Open

The Associated Press

Earlier in the day, Tsonga fought back from 5-2 down in the fifth set to beat Canadian prodigy Denis Shapovalov 3-6 6-3 1-6 7-6 (7-4) 7-5 in his second round match. He plays with the right tactic always. a player that (is) going to give you nothing.

The 31-year-old Troicki provided a useful gauge of Kyrgios's form and fitness, but it was the Australian's relative calmness in the face of chaos that stood out.

Nick Kyrgios set up a match with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

It wore down Troicki, who had no answer to his power and precision on serve and the veteran showed his frustration by smacking a ball on top of the roof at Hisense Arena in anger and having verbal confrontations with both the chair umpire and a heckler in the crowd.

Kyrgios, who was fined $3,700 after his first round match for telling a fan to "shut the f*** up", said 'Well done, you're an idiot, ' to Zhu after the selfie stunt.

There were shades of a 2017 Andrea Seppi second-round stumble when Kyrgios surrendered a two-sets-to-love lead when the top-ranked Australian failed to deliver on a match point and then handed a break to Troicki.

Subsequently broken in the next game, Kyrgios managed to re-group in the tie-break to win six of the first seven points.

"It was a tough match so I'm happy to get through", the Australian said, "A lot of things [were] going on today, a lot of adversity".

With world number one Rafa Nadal moved out to Margaret Court Arena for his third round meeting with Damir Dzumhur, 17th seed Kyrgios and Tsonga will share the evening billing with women's number two Caroline Wozniacki on the main showcourt.

Told it was prankster, he said: "Good on him".

"We played one time and it was a close three-set battle so I am looking forward to it".

Across the Australian's first two wins at Melbourne Park, older brother Christos Kyrgios has appeared in the player's box wearing a bright blue shirt emblazoned with slogans and the Sportsbet logo.

McDonald, 22, had never even won a tour match until Monday, but threatened to pull off the upset of the tournament after delivering the Bulgarian third seed a fourth-set bagel. "Or stay on the beach, drinking some beer" — Juan Martin del Potro says where he'd rather be instead of playing tennis in extremely hot weather.

He will now meet Andrey Rublev of Russian Federation in the third round on Friday. I'm just going to blame it on the helicopter.
