Djokovic 1.29 v Kyrgios 4.30
Due to start at 2 pm
Kyrgios 2-0. Most recent Mar 2017, hard, 2 sets. He won again in 2017, hard, 2 sets. All their sets were close.
Overall win %’s and grass win %’s are stronger for Djokovic. Djokovic won 47 of his last 50 on grass.
In this tournament Djokovic needed 4 sets in 3 matches and 5 sets against Sinner in the q final. He dropped the first set in the last 2 rounds.
Kyrgios needed 5 sets against Jubb in the 1st round and also against Nakashima in the 4th round. He had treatment for a shoulder problem in that match. He then beat Garin in straight sets in the q final. He got a walkover in the semi final when Nadal withdrew. This is his 1st slam final. He will have some nerves but will give us the full Kyrgios experience. He will try to get under Djokovic’s skin.
Lay Djokovic around 1.20 to 1.25 and remove liab at 1.55. I expect Kyrgios to take at least a set. If he can keep focused he can push Djokovic all the way. Lay set 1 winner.
