Fan brings Nick Kyrgios Australian Open match to a halt

A lunatic fan has brought a headline Australian Open match to a halt after he began filming himself while he screamed out a sex noise.

Crowd favourite Nick Kyrgios was preparing to serve for the game in the second set of his second round match on Wednesday night when he was interrupted by the crazed man who was standing directly alongside his player’s box.

The cries were loud enough to earn the unwanted attention of the players, crowd and security.

It was the the main talking point of a truly bizarre tennis match that also saw the umpire smashed in the temple thanks to a loose backhand from Kyrgios’ opponent Viktor Troicki.

The man who pulled the stunt is Jamie Zhu, a self-described ‘social media entertainer’ who regularly posts videos of his ‘pranks’.

In a video posted to Instagram moments before the ‘joke’, Zhu says he has just thought of a ‘pretty f***ing next-level’ video to record as a friend maniacally laughs in the background.

‘I can’t tell you guys what it is, I can’t give you hints,’ he said. 

 Kyrgios, a 17th seed at his home Grand Slam, was lining up a serve to consolidate an early break in the second set.

The 22-year-old was beginning to wind up when Zhu, visible over his back shoulder, began shrieking while catching it all on film.

The Australian tennis star looked up in bewilderment as the madman spun around to catch the reception of the shocked audience on his phone.

Boos rang out as a nearby man attempted to push the ‘entertainer’ away while looking around for help.

‘There’s a guy down there with his camera right now who’s standing right next to Nick’s box. That was sub-optimal,’ Seven commentator Jim Courier said. 

‘I thought he was just taking a photo of himself but then he went into a chant of some sort,’ sideline reporter Roger Rasheed added.

‘But then it continued so there was a little bit of concern but he was quickly ushered out.’

The 22-year-old was fine $3,000 US after his first round match for unsportsmanlike conduct after swearing at a fan who was bothering him.

He managed to keep control of himself on this occasion and avoid losing any more money.

Zhu posted again to Instagram after he was kicked out, bragging to his followers. 'I think that was the greatest thing I've done in my life,' he said

He has since posted on Facebook about the incident, referring to the screech as a ‘sex noise’.
