NEW YORK -- Nick Kyrgios already was flexing his injured right hip before a game late in the first set of his third-round match at the U. Trayvon Mullen Raiders Jersey .S. Open. Then came a wild point that ended with him skidding to a stop on his knees on the sideline.Not long after that, the 14th-seeded Kyrgios again tried to stretch out his hip, before taking a medical timeout for help from a trainer. Soon enough, he was barely moving during points. Eventually, Kyrgios stopped while trailing 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Saturday night, allowing 63rd-ranked Illya Marchenko of Ukraine to reach the fourth round at a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.My hip was bothering me my first two matches and I got through, Kyrgios said. I guess it was just a matter of time.He dealt with a hip problem earlier this season.Ive got to take more time and be more diligent with (the) gym and everything, so this doesnt happen to me, said the 21-year-old Australian, known for his prodigious talent and on-court mood swings.Marchenko did not hide his excitement about what hes now achieved, exclaiming to the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd during an on-court interview: Its round of 16! Oh, my God!He will face two-time major champion and No. 3 seed Stan Wawrinka next.I played him this year already. He killed me completely, outplayed me in everything, said Marchenko, who lost 6-3, 6-2 to Wawrinka on a hard court at Indian Wells, California, in March.Kyrgios said he hit a couple of wide forehands that didnt feel too good, and he showed signs of trouble after only nine games, even as he played a calm, patient brand of baseline tennis that hes not necessarily known for. At 2-all in the second set, he sprinted forward to get to a sharply angled shot by Marchenko, reaching out to barely lift the ball back over the net for a backspin-filled winner. But Kyrgios momentum nearly carried him all the way to the chair umpires stand and he went down to the ground, skinning his left knee and drawing a bit of blood.After getting broken to trail 5-4 in the second set, Kyrgios flexed that hip again.Its almost just as hard mentally to play with something like that, he said.When that set ended, Kyrgios headed to the locker room with a trainer. But things didnt improve. He spent much of the third set barely moving between points, calling for the trainer, cursing, and, at one point, muttering that he felt as if hed been hit by a bus.You never know if the guys just irritated or its really bothering him, the 28-year-old Marchenko said. So I tried to stay focused.Down 4-1 in the third, Kyrgios sat down gingerly in his changeover seat, covered his face with a white towel while speaking to the trainer, and then appeared on the verge of tears.A couple of games later, he quit.Well, Im a little bit shocked right now, said Marchenko, whose red shirt was decorated with white skulls and stars. Im really sorry for Nick. I didnt want to win this way. ... A win is a win.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at Hunter Renfrow Jersey . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2.

McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. Serena Williams has penned an open letter calling out what she sees as double standards faced by women in sports.The 22-time Grand Slam champion writes that women are constantly reminded they arent men. She says people call her one of the worlds greatest female athletes, but notes that male athletes such as LeBron James, Roger Federer and Tiger Woods arent described by their gender.Williams says the equal pay issue frustrates her because women have done the same work and made the same sacrifices as our male counterparts. Howie Long Jersey. She says women must continue to dream big to empower the next generation of women to be just as bold in their pursuits.The letter was published in Porter Magazine and republished by British newspaper The Guardian .
