australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios will face the American Brandon Nakashima in the fourth round of Wimbledon in the first match on center court tonight.
Kyrgios managed to defeat No. 4 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in four sets in the third set with some heated words from both players after the match.
Tsitsipas accused Kyrgios of being a bully and the Australian hit back pointing out that the Greek player deliberately kicked balls at him when he was at the net.
Between all the drama Kyrgios has put up some very impressive tennis and he has made no secret that he believes his best chance of winning a Grand Slam is on the grass courts at Wimbledon.
Although Kyrgios is now the undisputed favorite in this match, historically he has struggled as a favorite and as Nick alluded to, you don’t get to the 4th round of a Grand Slam without playing good tennis.
Nakashima defeated Nicola Kuhn, Denis Shapovalov and Daniel Elahi Galan en route to this match and he only dropped two sets in the process.
