Nick Kyrgios ‘devastated’ after quarterfinal defeat to Karen Khachanov as he destroys two rackets on court after match

Top seed Kyrgios lost to 14-time Grand Slam champion Khachanov 6-2 3-6 7-5 but his downfall was partly because of two rackets smashing at court.

Kyrgios, who is world number 29 in men’s tennis, beat Russia’s Alexey Kuznetsov 7-6 (5) 6-3 3-6 6-1.

In the process he broke his racket and hit it into the stands where he said he saw it smashed.

Kyrgios, who is in a run to become the world number 1, said after the match: “I was devastated. I was devastated.
