Nick Kyrgios 1.52, Roberto Bautista Agut 2.8
Due to start at 7:30 am.
Kyrgios won their only previous meeting. That was in October 2015 in Tokyo. they met on a hard court and Kyrgios won in straight sets.
Both players won 64% of their matches last year. On hard courts Kyrgios leads 71% to 67% matches won.
Kyrgios has served extremely well in all his matches and has dropped just 1 set. In his first match Jan-Lennard Struff kept the sets tight but it was Stefanos Tsitsipas who gave the Aussie the stiffest test. Kyrgios came through in 3 tie break sets.
Bautista Agut has not dropped a set but has been a really short priced favourite in every match. Those matches have not prepared him to take on Kyrgios in his own back yard.
This won’t be easy for Kyrgios. Bautista Agut will make him earn every point. Back Kyrgios around 1.80 to 1.85.
