Nick Kyrgios vs Liam Broady Tips, Prediction & Preview

After a couple of false starts, Nick Kyrgios finally gets his Aussie summer of tennis underway when he comes up against World No. 127 Liam Broady in the opening round at Melbourne Park on Tuesday night.

Kyrgios has barely played over the last two years, choosing to spend most of the pandemic at home in Canberra rather than compete on tour.

The Australian played just seven tournaments last year and has slipped out of the top 100 as a result, casting doubt around his future on tour given he will need wildcards to get into most events.

Kyrgios has lost his last four competitive matches, with his last outing coming at the US Open where he was swept aside in straight sets by Roberto Bautista Agut. The 26-year-old then pulled out of the Melbourne Summer Classic before revealing he had COVID-19, which forced him out of Sydney last week.

However, when you have a weapon as big as Kyrgios’ serve, then you are always a threat, and by all accounts, he has been training hard over the summer, so he should be ready come Tuesday.

Broady is not someone to be underestimated – yes, the Brit has only won nine tour-level matches so far in his career at 28 years of age, but he’s improved a lot over the last couple of seasons and has worked extremely hard to get to where he is today, so he will relish the spotlight that comes with facing Kyrgios in Melbourne.

The Brit successfully navigated his way through qualifying with three consecutive three-set triumphs, including a brilliant comeback against Roman Safiullin – arguably the most in-form player in qualies – in the final round.

Currently operating close to his career-high ranking of No. 121, Broady has the game to potentially frustrate Kyrgios if he can keep errors to a low and force the Aussie into uncomfortable positions.

We can see tiebreaks in this match as Kyrgios focuses on his own delivery, but if he’s injury-free and recovered from illness, then the Aussie should have the firepower to move into the second round.
