Kyrgios Suffered a Heartbreaking Loss to Berdych

Australian Open

The 20-year-old Australian player, Kyrgios was frustrated and upset with the chair umpire after he suffered a heartbreaking loss to Berdych. The chair umpire was wrong for not giving instruction to turn off the loud music towards the end of the second set at the Rod Laver Arena.

The number 29 ranked Kyrgios explained that many people heard the music while the points were contested; the ref was telling him he could not hear it. Kyrgios said it was just strange as the ref said he heard nothing and all he wanted him to do was used the microphone to ask that the fans or whoever was playing the music should quiet it down. The Australian felt that he let people down by his loss, and when the reporter remarked that everyone loses, Kyrgios answered that Djokovic never loses.


Kyrgios was heartbroken by the defeat; he was expecting more of himself and was looking forward to another real deep run. He is the former junior ITF number one, in 2013, the doubles champion at Wimbledon, juniors single champion at the Australian Open in 2013 and become the first teenager to defeat Nadal in 2005. His serve, normally considered his best shot and while he enjoys playing on all surfaces his favourite tournaments are the US Open and Wimbledon.

At the US Open in 2014, he beat both Seppi and Youzhny and in the fourth round at Wimbledon, he overran 13th ranked Ganquets and Vesely to reach the quarterfinal against Nadal. Additional highlights of his career include reaching the fourth round of the 2015 Australian Open.

After his loss to Berdych, an upset Kyrgios felt they needed to add a new rule to the book, unless you start playing tennis when there’s music in the background. He yelled that it’s a circus when the scores were announced.
