Kyrgios vs Nakashima Tips, Predictions & Preview

It’s an excellent chance for Kyrgios to return to a Grand Slam quarter-final for the first time in seven years when he meets Nakashima in the fourth round of Wimbledon on Monday.

Kyrgios hasn’t played a Grand Slam quarter-final since the 2015 Australian Open, which followed his breakthrough run at Wimbledon in 2014, where he famously beat Rafael Nadal as a wildcard ranked outside the top 100 to make his first major quarter-final.

A lot has happened since then, but Kyrgios is focused and made Wimbledon a priority in 2022, skipping the clay season in order to best prepare for this fortnight.

The 27-year-old has been outstanding in the tournaments he’s played this season and he plays his best tennis on grass, winning 12 of his last 15 completed matches on the surface.

In fact, it’s taken the very best to knock Kyrgios out of Wimbledon throughout his career, with the Aussie only losing to top 10 players in completed matches.

That’s an intimidating stat for Nakashima, who is playing in the fourth round of a slam for the first time in his career.

The World No. 56 has improved considerably over the last couple of seasons and is a very solid player capable of beating a lot of players on tour. Case in point, Nakashima took out Denis Shapovalov earlier in the tournament and also got the better of the in-form Tommy Paul and accomplished grass courter Sam Querrey in the lead-in tournaments.

In short, Nakashima is certainly no pushover and his compact game has the potential to cause Kyrgios some problems.

We fully expect Kyrgios to prevail, but this could be a tense affair like his first round against Paul Jubb. Kyrgios is expected to win and is under all the pressure with the best opportunity possible to reach a Grand Slam quarter-final as an unseeded player. He didn’t deal with that pressure of expectation well in his first round, so Nakashima definitely has the ability to keep things tight and snatch a set before the Aussie’s greater firepower takes over.
