Bet Of The Day July 10 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Kyrgios is 2-0 over Djokovic
  • Kyrgios is 4-0 over Djokovic in sets
  • Djokovic has never broken the Kyrgios serve
  • Djokovic has only created one break point in four sets vs Kyrgios
  • Djokovic has dropped sets in four of his six Wimbledon matches this tournament

We’re off to Wimbledon for today’s best bet as Australia’s own Nick Kyrgios targets his first Grand Slam title against three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic.

The first Australian man to make a major final since Lleyton Hewitt at the 2005 Australian Open, Kyrgios is also aiming to become the first Aussie since Hewitt 20 years ago to win the Wimbledon title.

Of course he’s got a monumental challenge in front of him – Djokovic hasn’t lost on Wimbledon Centre Court since 2012 and has won the last three editions of the tournament.

However, the odds for a Kyrgios victory are too good to ignore – and Djokovic has been far from his best throughout the entire season.

Indeed, Djokovic’s 2022 campaign basically didn’t start until April and he’s been shaky since returning to the tour, choking badly in the French Open quarter-finals to Rafael Nadal and losing the Belgrade final to Andrey Rublev in front of his home fans.

Pressure is starting to get to Djokovic and obviously that will be magnified in a Grand Slam final. Furthermore, Djokovic might be playing his last major match of the year if he remains barred from entering the USA for the US Open.

Djokovic has also been struggling throughout Wimbledon – he’s dropped at least one set in four of his six matches, including against Soonwoo Kwon, Tim Van Rijthoven, Jannik Sinner and Cameron Norrie.

The Serbian was clearly feeling the nerves as he dropped the opening set 6-2 against Norrie and a better player would have made Djokovic pay that day.

Kyrgios is a better player and full of confidence, with his biggest scalp of the tournament undeniably his four-set dispatch of Stefanos Tsitsipas in the third round.

Yes, Kyrgios benefitted from Nadal’s withdrawal in the semi-finals, but that means he’s well rested and should be physically ready for the title match.

Kyrgios also has the H2H edge over Djokovic – and it’s been pretty dominant at that. Kyrgios has won both previous meetings between the pair, which came in back-to-back week in 2017 at Acapulco and Indian Wells.

Djokovic lost all four sets, failed to break the Kyrgios serve and generated just one break point. On grass, Kyrgios’ serve will be even harder to break. The Aussie fired down 39 aces in those four sets and will be out for similar numbers on Sunday.

Of course, Djokovic deserves to be favourite – he’s 6-1 in Wimbledon finals and has 20 majors under his belt. But this should be a more even contest than the odds suggest, so more than happy to take a punt on Kyrgios at $4.25 to take home his first major title.
