  • Australia's Nick Kyrgios sits in his seat during his first-round win over Radu Albot

Nick Kyrgios has blasted US Open officials for not having a heat rule in place for men's players after huffing and puffing his way into the second round in sweltering NY.

At one point he turned to his supporter's box and said: 'I'm f***ed, my legs are f***ed.

He pulled through to take the first-round match in four sets, before revealing his next move.

The women have long played under an extreme heat rule offering 10 minutes' relief before the deciding third set. "He's very fit and it's tough conditions out here", Kyrgios said. We made one up today, right? I'm just happy I got through it.

There, he once again played flawless tennis to race into a 4-0 lead, earning breaks in games one and three, with three more break chances in game five. Roger had the upper hand on the court, playing well on the return to break Nishioka six times from 15 chances but he also struggled on his second serve to offer nine break chances to the Japanese, managing to fends off eight of those to limit the damage and bring the win home in under two hours.

Iran Can Abandon Nuclear Deal If Needed: Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
The hardliners in parliament criticized Rouhani's economic policy and rejected his explanation for recent struggles. The motion to impeach the industries minister cited high inflation, particularly in the vehicle industry.

But the dual grand slam quarter-finalist knows he'll need to lift his game to get past Herbert first, let alone challenge Federer.

But he will first go up against Pierre-Hugues Herber, who he was forced to retire against at Wimbledon previous year.

After winning the opening set against Albot, recovering from a service break down, Kyrgios collapsed in the second, constantly muttering to his players' box during changeovers.

Later, the Australian said his on-court antics 'keep him relaxed'.

But, after a series of mid-match retirements over the past two years, the writing looked on the wall when Kyrgios allowed Albot back on level terms and then handed the world No.95 another break-point opportunity early in the third.
