French Open glance: Kyrgios loses racket, match; Keys out

French Open glance: Kyrgios loses racket, match; Keys out

Grief-stricken Nick Kyrgios has conceded his French Open hopes were all but cooked when his grandfather died in April.

Nick Kyrgios lost his cool on Thursday during his French Open Round of 16 match against Kevin Anderson.

After serving a fault late in the second set, Kyrgios slammed his racquet into the red dirt in frustration.

The demise of Kyrgios - who has been battling shoulder and hip injuries, the former which saw him withdraw from last month's Italian Open - was as dramatic as it was disappointing.

Trump says US will abandon global climate accord
Merkel had previously vowed to "convince the doubters" among world leaders that "protecting the climate matters to all of us". But Trump has also been known to change his mind, as he did in April with the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Kyrgios' wrestling match with his racket gets an A+ based on the reaction to the kid above his left shoulder in the white T-shirt. "I can't talk about it, I can't", he said. I just do it for myself.

Early on against Anderson, the 22-year-old displayed in one extraordinary game why he could become Australia's first men's French Open champion in nearly half a century.

Kyrgios was handed a penalty point for the outburst as he trailed against the South African ranked No 62 in the world.

"And then he can go out and actually be quite aggressive on his return game and put pressure on his opponents".

The Australian Davis Cup captain looked prophetic as he watched courtside when Kyrgios achieved one of the rarest feats in tennis.

After winning the first set, Kyrgios was leading 4-2 in the second when the meltdown began.

But suddenly, as he did in his second-round Australian Open defeat to Andreas Seppi, Kyrgios collapsed.

The 18th seed made a positive start on Friday morning (AEST), taking the first set and building a 4-2 lead in the second before his inner demons surfaced yet again on the big stage.
