Australian Open: Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘Siu’ celebration sows confusion

| Breaking News Updates | Usa news


So far, the crowd at this year’s Australian Open has taken every opportunity to mimic the celebration in the stands, causing confusion.

Several news outlets, commentators and even some players initially mistook the shouting of “Siu” for boos, before finally realizing what the fans were actually shouting.

The chants received mixed reviews from players, with home favorite Nick Kyrgios unsurprisingly relishing in the boisterous backing. Following his first-round victory over Liam Broady, the 26-year-old celebrated the ‘Siu’ celebration on the pitch, much to the delight of the fans.

However, it’s fair to say Andy Murray wasn’t as interested.

“That’s painful,” the three-time Grand Slam winner said during his on-court interview as the sounds of “Siu” echoed through the stands.

“I think it’s like ‘Siu’ or something, what Ronaldo does when he scores,” he added in his post-match press conference. “It was incredibly irritating.”

CNN contacted the Australian Open for comment, but tournament organizers were not immediately available to respond.
