QUEENS,NEW YORK: The US Open 2022 saw the return of Megan Lucky, a fan whose beer-chugging exercise in Arthur Ashe Arena last year made her a viral sensation. Last year when the camera zoomed on her, Lucky showed great agility to reach out for her boyfriend’s beer, and gulped it down in one attempt, while the audience cheered for her. Lucky seized her moment again this year, as she quickly finished her partner’s beer, but amidst louder reception from the rest of the spectators.

The whole act was shown on the main screen, and the US Open also shared her video on Twitter. “It seems this is becoming a tradition at this point,” wrote the US Open Twitter profile.

Megan was present in the third-round clash between Serena Williams and Ajla Tomljanovic. Williams struggled in the beginning but levelled the one-set deficit before losing the decisive set by 6-1. Tomljanovic will now play Ons Jabeur in the quarter-finals on Tuesday.

Megan, who boasts over 28k followers on Instagram, also posted a picture of herself standing outside the Arthur Ashe, and captioned, “Some b*tch named Serena stole my thunder @usopen release the tapes!!”

While most of the fans largely enjoyed the video, some questioned the tournament’s organizers for promoting binge drinking. One wrote, “Why are we “proud” or impressed by someone chugging a warm beer in a plastic cup? This is called binge drinking and it occurs on almost every college campus. It’s not healthy, it’s not impressive, and it’s certainly not role model material for young sports enthusiasts."

US Open also posted a video of Meghan chugging beer in 2021 and 2022 on instagram with a caption "back-to-back #usopen 🍺 champ"

Sports in the US have a long-standing tradition of engaging with fans during break time with social pastimes like beer-skolling, group dance, and kiss cam, which is the most popular among all. Tennis, however, has been relatively conservative in this regard.

The crowd at the US Open will be in for a treat when Nick Kyrgios takes on Karen Khachanov in the quarter-finals. Kyrgios found himself in the middle of controversies during his third-round clash against the world number one Daniil Medvedev. The Australian swore at his team, spit on the court, and had a heated exchange with the chair umpire, but did just about enough to prevail over Medvedev.
