The Wimbledon Championships 2022 is into its second week. Over the last week, fans have been fortunate to witness some eye-catching tennis action. In one of the thrilling matches of the tournament, Nick Kyrgios caused a massive upset as he knocked out the fourth seed, Stefanos Tsitsipas.

It was an ill-tempered match, with constant momentum swings. Additionally, the crowd was vocal and made their emotions felt at every point won and lost. During the match, an incident occurred where Tsitsipas frustratingly smashed the ball into the crowd. However, he was fortunate that his actions didn’t cause any damage. As a result, he escaped sanctions from the chair umpire. After the match, Kyrgios’ father slammed Wimbledon officials for having double standards.
