Nick Kyrgios defeats Daniel Medvedev with a strange shot

Nick Kyrgios complained to the president's referee during his fourth-round match against Daniil Medvedev at the US Open.

NEW YORK – Always in the midst of awkward situations on the tennis court, Nick Kyrgios has outdone himself this time. In Sunday’s Round of 16 match at the US Open against top seed Daniil Medvedev, he lost a crucial point in perhaps the most careless of ways.

At 30-all in the second half of the third set, it looked like Kyrgios would get a break point and a chance to take the lead in the match. In fact, Kyrgios had just the breaking point when his passing shot flew straight into the air from Medvedev’s racket.

The ball was not going over the net, but for some reason Kyrgios sprinted alongside Medvedev from the field to shoot the ball out of the air before it rebounded.
