Nick Kyrgios vs Thanasi Kokkinakis Match Preview
Nick Kyrgios will face Thanasi Kokkinakis in the first round of the US Open.
Kyrgios has been consistent thus far this season. The Australian’s first Grand Slam match at home was a disaster. Kyrgios was eliminated in the second round by Daniil Medvedev, although he and Thanasi Kokkinakis advanced to the men’s doubles final. They created history as a team when they won the inaugural men’s doubles championship at the Australian Open.
Kyrgios has accomplished a great deal since then. He advanced to the last eight of the Indian Wells Masters. He reached the last four at Halle, Houston, and Stuttgart.
Kyrgios lost in four sets to Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final after reaching his first Grand Slam final.
After winning the Citi Open, the Australian improved his record on North American hard courts. He won two doubles titles with Thanasi Kokkinakis and Jack Sock.
Nick Kyrgios advanced to the second round of the Canadian Open after defeating Daniil Medvedev. He was defeated in the quarterfinals by Hubert Hurkacz, who went on to win the event. Taylor Fritz, the eventual champion of the Cincinnati Masters, knocked out the 27-year-old golfer in the second round.
He is 9 years old now that he is 31. Kyrgios improved his score from 137 to 26.
Thanasi Kokkinakis improved this season. The 26-year-old enjoyed an almost flawless start to the season, reaching the quarterfinals in Adelaide. The following week, he won his first ATP championship at the Adelaide International 2. He was eliminated in the first round of the singles tournament, but he and Nick Kyrgios went on to win the doubles title.
Kokkinakis never got it to the ATP main draw, and when he did, he didn’t fare well. One Australian has advanced to the quarterfinals of the Geneva Open. He and Kyrgios won another hard-court doubles title. At the Winston-Salem Open, James Duckworth defeated the 26-year-old favorite.
