Nick Kyrgios hits a ball

Nick Kyrgios may have won his 4th-round match against Daniil Medvedev at the US Open on Sunday night, but it was no thanks to moves like this.

The Australian tennis player decided to make a boneheaded play during the third set. The players split the first two sets, and Kyrgios was up 1-0 in the third set. It was 30-all when Medvedev tried to return a hard shot and popped a ball up. The was set to bounce out to give Kyrgios a break point. Instead of just letting the ball bounce out, Kyrgios decided to run to Medvedev’s side of the court and hit the ball while it was in the air.

What a dumb move by Kyrgios, who didn’t realize you can’t run past the net to the other side of the court unless the ball first bounced on your side. He gave Medvedev the point with that dumb move, and Medvedev won the next point to hold serve.

Kyrgios still won the match 7-6(11), 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 to advance to the quarterfinals of the US Open for the first time in his career. He’s still doing his best to get in his own way too.
