Russian tennis player Karen Khachanov defeated Australian athlete Nick Kyrgios in the quarterfinals of the US Open. After the end of the match, the Australian thanked the opponent and the referee, and then, in a rage, smashed his rackets on the court. The emotional reaction to the loss was caught on video.
Russian tennis player Karen Khachanov reached the semi-finals of the Grand Slam tournament for the first time in his career and will soon play with Norwegian Kasper Ruud.
The Australian will now pay $14,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct. However, for him it is a drop in the ocean. For reaching the 1/4 finals, he will receive 445 thousand dollars in prize money.
