Djokovic vs Kyrgios Tips, Prediction & Preview

What an opportunity for Nick Kyrgios as the World No. 40 looks to become the first Australian man to win a Grand Slam singles title since Lleyton Hewitt at Wimbledon 20 years ago.

Of course Djokovic is the favourite and how could he not be – the Serbian has won 20 major singles titles, is 6-1 in Wimbledon finals and hasn’t lost on Centre Court since 2013, winning his last 27 consecutive matches at the event for three consecutive titles. That’s undisputed dominance if I’ve ever seen it.

However, backing Kyrgios on Sunday is definitely worth the punt.

Djokovic hasn’t been at his best all year long and certainly not at Wimbledon over the last fortnight, where he has dropped at least one set in four of his six matches, including against Soonwoo Kwon, Tim Van Rijthoven, Jannik Sinner and Cameron Norrie.

Djokovic’s season didn’t really start until April. He lost the Belgrade final in front of his home fans to Andrey Rublev and choked big-time in the French Open quarter-finals against Rafael Nadal.

There’s been plenty of moments in 2022 where Djokovic has clearly played with nerves – probably due to the fact he knows his decision to remain unvaccinated has seen Nadal go two majors ahead of him in the all-time race and the very real chance that he will remain barred from the United States and therefore not have the chance to compete at the US Open later this year.

Kyrgios also holds the H2H advantage and it’s fairly dominant at that – the Aussie is 2-0 in matches, 4-0 in sets and has never dropped serve against Djokovic, only giving up one break point in those four sets.

On grass, Kyrgios’ serve will be an even bigger weapon. He blasted 39 aces in those four sets on hardcourt and will be out for similar numbers on the lawns.

The $4.25 on offer for a Kyrgios victory is too good to ignore, and if you put merit on the fact Kyrgios has never lost a set or serve against Djokovic, you can get $16 for the Aussie to win the final in straight sets.
