Bemelmans stuns Kyrgios in Antwerp, Sock back on track in Stockholm

19 October 2017 00:39

Nick Kyrgios made a second consecutive early exit as Ruben Bemelmans knocked the third seed out of the European Open on Wednesday.

The world number 20 was stripped of his prize money at the Shanghai Masters and fined $10,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct after quitting midway through his first-round match against Steve Johnson last week, stating that he was struggling with illness and a shoulder injury.

Wildcard entry Kyrgios suffered another blow when he went down 6-7 (3-7) 6-3 6-3 to unheralded Belgian Bemelmans in Antwerp after being given a first-round bye.

The Australian put together an impressive run to the China Open final before losing to Rafael Nadal earlier this month, but was broken twice in the second set and again in the decider to bow out to an opponent ranke 78 places below him.
