Nick Kyrgios spotted chugging fan’s beer after winning Australian Open clash

Nick Kyrgios was spotted taking a swig of a supporter's beer after advancing to the second round of the Australian Open on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old Aussie cruised past Britain's Liam Broady in straight sets and was up to his old tricks as he began his home tournament in typically entertaining style.

He sent the crowd wild with an inventive underarm serve through the legs and even copied Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo's 'SIIUU' celebration after sealing the win.

Kyrgios was lapping up the applause all afternoon, and even shouted 'I'm back' after winning his first game with a thunderous 220km/h serve.

As he was posing for photos after the match, he cheekily took a sip of a fan's outstretched cup of beer before shrugging his shoulders with a wry smile.

"Kyrgios you legend," one fan tweeted.

"That's my boy. Recovery drink," wrote another.

A third commented: "He turns around to see cameras on him, shrugs his shoulders, and takes a swig. Classic, no harm, no foul, just a celebration."

Kyrgios had been a major doubt for the tournament after testing positive for Covid-19 just over a week ago, but the virus doesn't seem to have hampered his form – or indeed his confidence.

That being said, he'll have to be at his very best to stay in the competition after setting up a mouth-watering tie against World No 2 Daniil Medvedev in the next round.

The 25-year-old Russian reached the Australian Open final last year, but was beaten by Novak Djokovic – who was deported from the country this week following an intense two-week row over vaccinations.

Medvedev went on to win the US Open in September, beating Djokovic in straight sets in the final.

Kyrgios meanwhile has failed to progress further than the quarter final stage of any Grand Slam competition.
