Here are Nick Kyrgios vs. Karen Khachanov Highlights. It becomes more and more unexpected and spectacular! Congrats Karen! well-deserved win. khachanov is clearly a hard-working guy, so much improvement on his backhand. he stood strong tonight against a very determined kygrios and beat the crowd, commentators, and media.
and he did it respectfully. im so excited to see one of these last 6 guys earn a maiden slam. what an event this us open has become. so many upsets and so many insane 5 setters.
You noticed the improved backhand as well. Not sure what he has done in such a short period, but he’s definitely changed something. It’s normal an obvious weakness. Solid but unexpected win.
Congrats to Kachanov! Kyrgios had a great run to Quarterfinals. Felt like he needed to be more agile around the court. Perhaps a page out of Noles past games against Kachanov.
What a match almost all in the stadium were against khachanov thankfully in the end the crowd were put to silence by Khachanov !
Karen went against nick and the crowd and still won. That some mental strength. Djokovic might not be here but that some Djokovic-like mental strength.
I think it’s possible that the circumstances will never align so well for Nick as on this Grandslam. Rafa out, Novak nor Zverev not playing, Medvedev defeated by Nick himself, no player in a really terrific shape. Thought only Carlos in the final can stop him. Well, Nick needs to keep on playing his improved and more mature game/mindset and other opportunities may come. Congrats to Karen!
I dn’t know what’s it with Kyrgios..1st set he did not even try..2nd set he was abt to give up..But suddenly when Khachanov gifted him a break, He started moving well..From then on, He was moving pretty well and played several long rallies until the end knowing he cld win the match..I dn’t know if it’s really injury or a reason for his ego, So that even if he lose(He did), He can say to himself that he was not 100% and was injured.
It was his match to lose..Had he played his usual level he cld have won it in 4..But, in the 5th Karen really raised his level..His BH was firing esp some great DTL shots and hitting deep and powerful of both the wings..Most Imply, Karen chipped in most returns and made Kyrgios play each of his own serves which clearly frustrated him..Great game by Karen..But, Ruud is the fav for the SF..
