Rising Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios had to overcome a sudden nosebleed during his first-round conquest of Denis Istomin at the Roland Garros 2015 on Monday.

The 20-year-old powerhouse is a no stranger to nosebleed, which has been bothering him frequently on court. Consequently, Kyrgios had to block up a piece of cotton into his nostril to prevent the blood from oozing out.

“I just tend to get nosebleeds. I can’t control them,” a bothered Kyrgios was quoted as saying by Associated Press. “I’ve been doing it (cotton) for a long, long time. When I was young, as well, I’d get them. It’s quite strange, actually.”

It, however, didn’t act as constrain to Kyrgios’ performance, as the 29th seed sailed through to the next round with a routine 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 triumph.

Up next, he is scheduled to lock horns with Great Britain’s Kyle Edmund for a place in the round of 32.
