Megan Lucky, the US Open's viral beer drinker, claims she was denied from being on camera this year
Internet hit Megan Lucky said that she was snubbed by the cameras at the US Open, denying her the chance to show off her beer downing skills.
The 27-year-old went viral in 2021 and 2022 when US Open cameras picked up her showcasing her talent with alcohol, leading to her gaining over 100,000 Instagram followers and affectionately being nicknamed “Beer Girl”.
But during the 2023 edition of the competition, she has claimed she was snubbed by the camera crews.
“I obviously went to the US Open this past weekend, and for whatever reason whoever was in charge did not want me on the jumbotron this year,” Lucky said to the media.
“I don’t know their reasons, they didn’t share them with me, but I still had a lot of fun and I’ve made my peace with it.
“I know the universe has a plan for me, and like I said last time, ‘Beer Girl’ is part of me, and maybe I’ll take her to another sport that wants some of her fun-loving energy soon.”
Who is Megan Lucky?
Away from the tennis court stands, the internet hit is a qualified yoga instructor and an NLP life coach.
Following her explosion of popularity, she also hosts her own podcast which has discussed feelings regarding editing photos on Instagram and a potential return to the US Open.
Lucky also models on her profile showing off her incredible figure amongst photos of her boyfriend, friends and daily adventures.
Djokovic through to semi-finals
On Tuesday, Novak Djokovic qualified for the semi-finals of the US Open as he bids to win his first tournament in New York since 2019.
He defeated the American and ninth seed Taylor Fritz in straight sets, winning out 6-1, 6-4, 6-4.
He will no doubt be watching Carlos Alcaraz‘s quarter-final tomorrow against Alexander Zverev.
Alcaraz defeated Djokovic at Wimbledon earlier in the year and will bid to claim his second Grand Slam of 2023 at the final opportunity.
Whilst he is ranked best in the world he will lose the spot to Djokovic when the charts are updated after the tournament, no matter how well he does.
