Nick Kyrgios v Andreas Seppi Head to Head
Nick Kyrgios and Andreas Seppi have played out some epics in their recent head-to-head matches. The Australian currently leads the series 3-1, and their two tussles in Melbourne which both went the distance are fresh in memory of tennis fans.
All four meetings between Kyrgios and Seppi have taken place on hard courts.
Kyrgios Will Switch Gears From Laver Cup To Zhuhai
For the third straight year, Nick Kyrgios was part of Team World that took part at the third installment of the Laver Cup. The Australian was involved in another classic against Roger Federer in singles action, but fell short once again to the 20-time Grand Slam champion. Although Kyrgios would team up with Jack Sock to win in doubles, he failed to inspire an unlikely win for his team.
Kyrgios will need to switch gears quickly as he has elected to play at the Zhuhai Championships in China, about 6000 miles across the continent from Geneva.
The Australian is bidding to win his third ATP tour-level title of the year after also triumphing at 500-levels in Acapulco and Washington in 2019. Will he have the legs to surge to a title-winning run this week?
Seppi Arrives In Zhuhai In Good Form
Andreas Seppi’s ranking may have fallen off a cliff, but he is showing no signs of hanging up his racket. The veteran Italian will arrive in Zhuhai on the back of a title win at the Cary Challenger in US almost a fortnight ago.
Seppi’s form has fluctuated between months this season, and in fairness his tour-level record has been largely unspectacular. The 35-year-old reached the finals in Sydney during the early weeks of 2019, but that still remains his biggest achievement of the season.
A respectable third round showing at the Australian Open and a quarterfinal appearance in Delray capped off a decent first quarter of the 2019. Wins would be hard to come by ever since and it was only post-US Open that he found his feet at the ATP Challenger events in New Haven and Cary – the latter resulting in his maiden title of the season.
Kyrgios v Seppi Predictions & Tips
It is always difficult to know which version of Nick Kyrgios will turn up especially after an event as refreshing as the Laver Cup. But one thing is for certain, if the Australian brings his A-game to the table, Seppi will find it increasingly difficult to find his groove.
Tip: Three sets in the match: 6/4 (888Sport)
