US Open 2022: Kyrgios complains of marijuana smell during second-round win over Bonzi

0

The
2022
Wimbledon
finalist
made
the
claim
to
the
chair
umpire
late
in
the
second
set
of
his
hard-fought
7-6
(7-3)
6-4
4-6
6-4
win
over
the
Frenchman
at
Louis
Armstrong
Stadium.

The
chair
umpire
remarked
that
the
smell
could
be
coming
from
the
kitchen
which
Kyrgios
retorted
with
“it
was
f***ing
marijuana”.

“People
don’t
know
I’m
a
heavy
asthmatic,”
Kyrgios
told
reporters
after
the
match.

“When
I’m
running
side
to
side,
I’m
struggling
to
breathe,
probably
not
something
I
want
to
be
breathing
in
in
between
points.

“Yeah,
US
Open,
it’s
a
very
different
vibe
to
everywhere
else.
I
feel
like
Wimbledon
was
so
proper.
Australian
Open,
you
kind
of
expect
it
there,
being
an
Aussie.

“But
here,
it’s
just
like
noisy.
Point
in,
point
out,
I
can’t
barely
hear.
Half
the
time
I
can’t
even
hear
my
team
because
it’s
so
noisy
all
the
time.”

The
latter
half
of
Kyrgios’ second-round
match
coincided
with
major
drawcard
Serena
Williams
playing
on
Arthur
Ashe
Stadium
against
second
seed
Anett
Kontaveit.

“Ashe
was
unbelievably
noisy,”
Kyrgios
added.
“I
couldn’t
hear
anything.
Constant
jitter.
Things
going
off,
sirens.

“In
Armstrong
today,
hearing
trains
and
people.
For
someone
that’s
struggled
to
focus
in
my
career,
I’m
really
trying
hard
to
put
my
head
down
and
play
point
by
point,
try
to
dig
myself
out
of
some
certain
situations.

“It’s
hard
because
there’s
a
lot
of
distractions.
Obviously
a
lot
of
heckling
going
on
as
well.
People
are
saying
things.
I
got
to
be
very
careful
with
what
I
say
these
days.”

Kyrgios’
win
means
he
will
take
on
American
J.J.
Wolf
in
the
third
round
on
Friday
and
the
23rd-seed
Australian,
who
won
August’s
Citi
Open
in
Washington
DC,
said
he
was
feeling
motivated
and
more
professional
than
ever.

“This
year’s
been
amazing
in
so
many
different
ways,” he
said.
“For
my
tennis,
I
kind
of
wanted
to
almost
reinvent
myself,
get
back
to
the
top
of
the
game
where
I
know
I
belong.

“The
Wimbledon
final
was
a
turning
point
I
think
for
me
mentally.
If
I
won
that
match,
I
don’t
know
where
my
motivation
would
have
been
at.
Losing
it
and
being
so
close,
it
was
really
tough
for
me
to
kind
of
swallow
that.

“Winning
Washington,
winning
so
many
matches,
I
just
feel
like
I
thought
the
pressure
would
be
off
me
after
winning
Wimbledon.
He’s
a
Wimbledon
finalist,
he’s
nearly-over-the-hump-type
thing.

“I
didn’t
think
I’d
be
putting
this
amount
of
pressure
on
myself.
Every
day
I
come
in,
I
watch
what
I
eat,
I
try
and
get
sleep.
Like
every
practice
session
I
try
and
have
good
intent.
I
almost
don’t
know
who
I
am
anymore,
to
be
honest,
because
that’s
not
me.

“I
feel
like
I’m
really
professional
right
now.
I
never
thought
that
the
Wimbledon
final
would
make
me
that
way.
I
thought
it
would
be
the
other
way,
the
reverse,
almost
a
bit
lax
and
a
bit
chilled
with
it.”
