Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios is one of the most anticipated men present at Wimbledon 2022. Despite a not exceptional ranking, the particular tennis player is one of the possible outsiders for the final victory of the tournament.
So much will depend on the physical condition of the tennis player, who retired in the last tournament before Wimbledon, due to abdominal problems. Not only the single as Nick is also highly anticipated for the doubles tournament, where he will team up with his great friend Thanasi Kokkinakis.
The two have won the Australian Open in doubles, skipped the Roland Garros and will debut here at Wimbledon against Aljaz Bedene and Sonwoo Kwon. Speaking to the microphones of Tennis head Nick has severely attacked the organizers of Wimbledon, for a choice related to the tournament.
Here are his words: "On the one hand I can't wait to play the doubles tournament, but at the same time I'm curious about this best of five set tournament. To be honest I think it's the stupidest thing ever, none is interested in seeing doubles matches at best of five sets."
Nick Kyrgios against Wimbledon organizers
Nick Kyrgios will make his first round match at Wimbledon against the British Jubb, starting as a big favorite. So far he is having a good season on grass given the semifinals obtained first in Stuttgart and then in Halle.
Kokkinakis himself, speaking of his friend, appeared very optimistic about his chances: "I think he is among the contenders for victory. I have seen his scoreboard and I think it is suitable for him, he is fine and I think he can do really well.
Obviously, it should be emphasized that the Grand Slam tournaments are different and very difficult. But Nick can use his game to do well on grass, he has already done well on this surface in the past and I am confident for him.
It is important that Nick passes the first rounds without worries, this could put him in really good condition for the tournament." In the second round Kyrgios could challenge the Serbian Filip Krajinovic while in the third round there is expectation for the probable crossing against Stefanos Tsitsipas.
