start exploring

At the U.S. Open, Karen Khachanov was in his first Grand Slam semifinal, and he celebrated by standing on court with his arms outstretched and revelling in the raucous applause of the audience. 

Nick Kyrgios vented his disappointment at the near miss by smashing a pair of rackets not far away. Before anything else Kyrgios slammed his equipment on the ground once, twice, three, and four times

after Khachanov won the match 7-5, 4-6, 7-5, 6-7 (3), and 6-4. Kyrgios then pulled out a second racket, swung back and forth, and smashed that one off the sidelines as well.

Kyrgios lost in a high-quality, topsy-turvy quarterfinal that began on Tuesday night and ended more than 3 1/2 hours later, at about 1 a.m. Wednesday at Arthur Ashe Stadium, 

unable to repeat his victory over defending champion Daniil Medvedev at Flushing Meadows. That's absolutely devastating. "It's sad" Kyrgios, an Australian man aged 27 who finished second at Wimbledon

in July, said. Almost every other competition held throughout the year is pointless. The Grand Slam is where you need to be right now. That's how people will always think of you.

When asked about Kyrgios's reaction, Khachanov said that he saw "rackets flying" and added, "I feel the agony for him. "Two spectators were ejected from the game early on after one of them

shaved the heads of the other. Even the latecomers were vocal in their support of Kyrgios by the match's conclusion. Within the fourth set, chair umpire James Keothavong urged, 

"Once again, ladies and gentlemen: respect both the players. "I had everything I needed. After losing in the previous two major tournament quarterfinals, No. 27 seed Khachanov admitted, 

I was expecting that the fans would be more for him, that he was the favourite in their eyes. Khachanov was playing No. 23 seed Nick Kyrgios. On Friday, Khachanov will play No. 5 Casper Ruud final.
