Nick Kyrgios v Gianluca Mager Head to Head
This will be a first meeting between the two 26-year-olds..
Kyrgios Wins a Thriller Against Humbert
Back to tennis after a long break, Nick Kyrgios showed no signs of rust as he edged out Halle Open champion Ugo Humbert in the first round of Wimbledon on Wednesday.
The match which began on Tuesday had to be suspended at 3-3 in the deciding set due to the 11 pm curfew. On resumption on Wednesday, it was difficult to separate the two until Humbert got broken while serving at 7-7. Kyrgios then saved a couple of break points on his serve to hold on to a dramatic 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 9-7 win in three hours and 26 minutes.
Kyrgios out-aced Humbert 23-13, however, the Frenchman had nine more winners than the Australian’s 51.
In a match that saw a staggering 309 points, the World No. 60 Kyrgios won 162 of them. Both players had 13 break points each with Kyrgios cashing in on five of those chances, while world No. 25 converting just three.
A two-time major quarterfinalist, Kyrgios reached the last eight in Wimbledon in 2014. Since then the six-time ATP winner has made it to the fourth round twice. The Australian lost to Rafael Nadal in the second round in 2019.
Ever since retiring against Humbert in Acapulco in February 2020, Kyrgios has not played outside of Australia due to the pandemic. He was 6-3 in 2020 and came to Wimbledon with a 4-2 record this year, reaching the third rounds at Melbourne-2 and the Australian Open.
Mager Sends Londero Packing
Facing Kyrgios in the next round will be Italian Gianluca Mager, who defeated Argentina’s Juan Ignacio Londero in the first round on Wednesday.
Making his debut on grass, Mager broke his opponent’s serve five times in the match, and struck 17 aces and 48 winners to win the two-hour-and-26-minute contest 7-6 (7-3), 6-0, 4-6, 6-3.
The Italian, ranked 77th in the world, improved to 9-11 this year. He was a quarterfinalist at Delray Beach and Belgrade and had won the first round at Roland Garros as well, defeating Peter Gojoczyk, but fell to compatriot Jannik Sinner in the next round.
The Italian was a finalist in Rio in 2020, where he defeated Dominic Thiem in the quarterfinals but finished runner-up to Christian Garin.
Kyrgios v Mager Prediction and Tip
Kyrgios has a superior game and his experience, particularly on grass courts and Wimbledon, is a huge plus. Expect the Aussie to win this with ease.
