Kyrgios into third round at US Open

Agency News

NEW YORK, Aug 30 : Australia's Nick Kyrgios beat France's Antoine Hoang 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 to move into the third round of the US Open on Thursday.

In a typically fiery display, the 24-year-old wrapped up the match in just under two hours, though he briefly lost his temper when he thought Hoang was allowed to challenge a call too long after the point had ended.

The 28th seed argued with the chair umpire and then asked for an explanation from a supervisor, before refocusing and closing the match out. Kyrgios now faces Russia's 43rd-ranked Andrey Rublev for a spot in the last 16. (XINHUA)
