Nick Kyrgios Continues to Take Dig at Stefanos Tsitsipas Toilet Breaks, Gets Code Violation at US Open 2021

Two contrasting personalities, Nick Kyrgios and Roberto Bautista Agut battled each other in the US Open 2021 opening round. Consequently, the Louis Armstrong Stadium saw the two exhibit their exceptional qualities on the court. However, Kyrgios had some complains about the court conditions.

Since the Aussie star is one of the biggest servers in the sport, fast hard courts suit his game the most. Typically, hard courts in Flushing Meadows do deliver  fast-paced matches. But, it is the night session, where the courts turn a bit slower than day time.

Expressing his mind loudly, Kyrgios stated that the courts are ‘not playing fast enough.‘ As a result, the Spaniard Bautista Agut took all advantage as the Aussie’s serve took a big blow.

Additionally, Kyrgios argued with the chair umpire that if Stefanos Tsitsipas can take 20 minutes bathroom break, how does he get the time violation. Undeniably, there was so much to come from this encounter.
