The second round of ATP Grand Slam at Wimbledon. There will probably be the most exciting and entertaining match of the day as two of the most talented players will face off against each other. To have more insights on this ATP Nick Kyrgios vs Rafael Nadal match please check out the preview below.
Nick is a 24 years old Australian currently being ranked 43rd overall. He is best known as a very talented player who could very well be at the top of the list if not his bad manners and unprofessional attitude. It’s really surprising sometimes how can such a talented and skilled player seem like he doesn’t care about anything and is bored on the court. He is some of the fans favorite due to his emotions and some childish manners throughout the match and others hate to see it and even calls him clowning. Anyway, it’s up to everyone to decide to like him or not but the fact is that Kyrgios often steps up his game against the best players in the world and tomorrow he will have a great chance to prove himself once again against one of the bests.
33 years old veteran who is currently 2nd in the world is still playing at the highest level. Of course, he is at a different level compared to most of the players but if there is a weakness in his game it really has to be on faster grounds. It’s hard to expect someone to beat Nadal on clay which his play style fits perfectly but there is the other story on the grass. It’s a lot faster ground and usually, it takes some time to adapt to the ground. It will be only his 4th match of this season on grass as he has lost 2 of the exhibition matches against Cilic and Pouille and won against Sugita at the opening round at Wimbledon. Rafa has a lot of points to defend here as he’s reached the semi-final last year.
He will have a very tough path to it this year as most of his possible opponents on the way to the top are some of the top-ranked players. Tomorrow will be a test for Spaniard and we will see in what shape he shows up on grass against a really tough opponent.
