Nick Kyrgios is a controversial but definitely an interesting character and he will be in the spotlight once again on Friday. The Australian player will commentate, with the former world No. 1 doubles player Todd Woodbridge and No.
1 singles Jim Courier, the third round clash between Roger Federer and Taylor Fritz. Kyrgios lost in the first round match against Milos Raonic in straight sets. On Eurosport Federer commented on the challenges of facing Dan Evans in the second round: 'It all starts with slice.
How aggressive are you gonna be on it or are you gonna be more playing the style where you are gonna make him tired. Then if you never finish the rally you end up being in a tricky situation yourself when it maybe comes to crutch time because then you are maybe like, Which shot am I gonna hit now.
Because they seem that they are there to be hit but actually it's not the moment and then maybe you start pulling the trigger on the wrong one, so I think that's what the tricky one is and that's why sometimes I came in on some really tough shots to see like if this may be the way I should play, then I realized maybe not or maybe if I do it all the time then that's a good thing but I felt like I could have served and volleyed more, so I still felt like I had that in the back in case I needed it later on.'
Federer defeated Denis Istomin earlier in the first round in straight sets.
