Kyrgios Overcomes Bonzi in Chaotic Contest – Reaches Round 3 of U.S. Open

September 2, 2022

Nick Kyrgios has made it to the third round of the U.S. Open after beating Benjamin Bonzi 7-6(3) 6-4 4-6 6-4 in a chaotic match.

During the match Kyrgios complained to his team for not spurring him on enough in tight moments and also claimed to the chair umpire that he could smell marijuana fumes midway through the second set.

Nevertheless, the Greek-Australian No. 23 seed was able to keep composed enough to seal a four set victory over the Frenchman to reach the third round for the fifth time in his career.

Kyrgios, who has never gone beyond the third round at the U.S. Open, will face American J.J. Wolf next.

“I was literally hanging by a thread,” Kyrgios said in his on-court interview.

“His level today was incredible. I was not expecting an absolute war. That could have gone either way. He was a break up early in the fourth. I played some really risky tennis late in that fourth set to win. I’m just really happy to get through.”

He added that, “it’s been a very stressful time so I have high expectations to go deep this week and I’m just glad I got through. Every tournament I play now I’m expected to play amazing tennis every time but I’d rather have that pressure and expectation to go far… I definitely feel like my game has so much more confidence and I’m playing some of the best tennis of my life. That’s down to a lot of things, but I’m happy.”
