A Nys who can play tennis: Australian Open audience sees desperation turn into craziest point of the tournament

Hugo Nys and Jan Zielinksi beat their way to the quarterfinals of the doubles at the Australian Open on Monday. And how! Nys scored a miracle point during the match against Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury with a desperation attempt.

The 31-year-old Monegask seemed to be just short of returning a smash in the decisive third set, with a 3-1 lead. The only option was to throw his racket at the ball. To his own surprise – and that of his Polish colleagues and opponents – a direct hit followed that was so sharp that Salisbury could not get the ball back over the net. “Madhouse!”, the official Australian Open account hurled into the world via Twitter.

Nys and Zielinksi eventually won the match in the third round 7-6 (4), 6-7 (6), 6-2. On Tuesday, the duo also defeated the French Benjamin Bonzi Arthur Rinderknech (6-1, 6-4) and qualified for the semi-finals. A duel with Jérémy Chardy and Fabrice Martin, also from France, awaits.
