A younger tennis fan acquired much more than he bargained for at Australian Open as he copped a wayward shot from Nick Kyrgios within the physique, however he did find yourself with a racket from the Australian.
Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis took on New Zealand’s Michael Venus and Germany’s Tim Puetz within the males’s doubles quarter-final on John Cain Area on Tuesday when issues went awry.
Following a let name from the chair umpire on a Kokkinakis serve within the fourth sport of the opening set, Kyrgios’ frustrations acquired the higher of him and he smashed the ball straight into the bottom.
Sadly it was hit so exhausting and bounced into the stand and hit a younger fan, leaving the boy in tears.

The Australian instantly apologised after which handed one among his rackets to the boy as a peace providing.
Fortunately nine-year-old Fin Crane was not significantly injured and accepted the present and was all smiles after.
