Controversial Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios was filmed destroying two tennis rackets after losing a match to Russia’s Karen Khachanov at the US Open on Wednesday.
Kyrgios lost 5-7, 6-4, 5-7, 7-6 (7-3) and 4-6 in the match against Khachanov, which lasted nearly four hours.
The video shows the 27-year-old Australian calmly walking towards his bags after his Grand Slam hopes were dashed.
Kyrgios then suddenly proceeds with a major tantrum – smashing his tennis racket against the ground three times before throwing it.

Kyrgios is then seen grabbing a second racquet and throwing it to the ground with such force that it almost bounced off the net.
This follows another outburst from Kyrgios this week, where he was seen spitting and swearing at his own team box.
“‘Go home if you won’t support me bro,’ Kyrgios shouted at his group of fans, including his girlfriend Costen Hatzi. For his behavior, Krygios was fined $7,500.

“Honestly, I feel like crap. I feel like I let so many people down,” Kyrgios said bluntly in the press conference after the controversial match with Khachanov.
“I’m obviously devastated,” added the despondent tennis player. “But all credit goes to Karen. He’s a fighter. He’s a warrior. I think he served really well today.”

“Honestly probably the best server I’ve played this tournament with, to be honest the way he was hitting his spots under pressure,” Kyrgios added.
