Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis out of US Open doubles

·

Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis have been defeated by Lloyd Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara 6-3, 6(6)-7(8), 6(8)-7(10) in the US Open doubles third round.

The Australians broke their opponents in the fourth game of the first set and kept their lead throughout the set.

In the second set, Kyrgios and Kokkinakis had a total of three break points while their opponents didn’t get to any. However, they couldn’t use their chances and so the set reached a tie-break.

The 2022 Australian Open champions had two match points when they were leading already 6-4, but Glasspool and Heliovaara won four points in a row to level the score of the match.

Heliovaara and Glasspool carried the momentum into the third set, going a break up early.

It looked like Kyrgios and Kokkinakis were destined for the exit ramp, that was until they suddenly found their groove again to break back.

The set would end up going to another tiebreak, with Kyrgios and Kokkinakis getting an early 2-0 buffer after a lovely lob shot from the former.

The two teams went back and forth until the Special Ks sent the ball out to exit from the tournament.
