Nick Kyrgios was left “devastated” as his quest for a first grand slam title at the US Open

After reaching the final,Kyrgios arrived in New York motivated to try to go one better 

he was unable to find the same tremendous level he showed in beating defending champion Daniil Medvedev

Kyrgios, who had earlier been given a warning for slamming a drinks bottle on the ground,

He showed his frustration with the result by destroying two rackets and then walking swiftly off court

He came into the press room later with cap pulled low and laid bare his disappointment, 

“He just played the big points well. There really wasn’t anything in it.

Kyrgios and Khachanov were tied at 1-1 in their previous meetings on the court 

they were involved in a Twitter spat two years ago over player behaviour during the coronavirus pandemic, 

He bounced back well in the second set but lost his cool late in the third,
