Maria Sakkari is bothered by the smell of marijuana as she loses in the first round of the US Open

<p>Maria Sakkari was troubled by the scent of something off the court even while she was rolling on it.</p>
<p>It was marijuana, Sakkari stated.</p>
<p>The No. 8 seed from Greece lost to Rebeka Masarova 6-4, 6-4 on Monday, knocking her out of the U.S. Open. The match seemed to be going her way until she made a comment about the scent to the chair umpire during a changeover.</p>
<p>At the time, Sakkari was winning the opening set on Court 17 4-1.</p>
<p>Oh my god, the fragrance, Sakkari said.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-152239″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-download-61-9.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com download 61 9″ width=”1307″ height=”870″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-download-61-9.jpg 275w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-download-61-9-150×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1307px) 100vw, 1307px” title=”Maria Sakkari is bothered by the smell of marijuana as she loses in the first round of the US Open 3″></p>
<p>“I believe it came from the park,”</p>
<p>The U.S. Open semifinalist Sakkari stated the scent of marijuana didn’t bother her when she was playing. She had previously seen it Sunday during practice on the same court.</p>
<p>You don’t really consider it since your only concern is winning the game, Sakkari added. “I detected a scent, but that was all. I mean, I didn’t really pay attention to it.</p>
<p>Last year, Nick Kyrgios expressed his displeasure with smelling marijuana during a game, claiming that because he suffers from asthma, the fragrance certainly wasn’t ideal for him to breathe as he was moving around.</p>
<p>However, Sakkari said that it didn’t interfere with her performance as she made her third consecutive first-round elimination from a Grand Slam competition.</p>
<p>Sakkari stated, “There are times when you smell food, times when you smell cigarettes, and times when you smell weed.”</p>
<p>“I mean, because we’re in an open area, we have no control over it. A park is behind you. Anyone is free to act whatever they like.</p>
