Nick Kyrgios had a lot to offer during his second-round match against Horacio Zeballos at the US Open on Thursday.

The Australian powerhouse entertained the crowd with a powerful performance on serve, firing 24 aces en route a straight-set 7-5 6-4 6-4 conquest of his Argentine opponent. Kyrgios, however, had a lot more to showcase.

Towards the fag end of the second set, Kyrgios took Zeballos by surprise when he attempted a SABR and perfectly executed it.

SABR, a trick shot believed to have been invented by Roger Federer, sees the receiver rush onto the net in an attempt to sneak past the return across the server.

This wasn’t it the end of it. Kyrgios lived up to his controversial reputation after he shoved his towel on an interfering camera, which he deemed was getting too close to him during a changeover.
