Nick Kyrgios vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina: Preview
World No. 28 Nick Kyrgios has been on fire this year and was on a great run picking up 15 wins from 16 matches before his run came to an end at the hands of Hubert Hurkacz in the Canadian Open losing the match 7-6(4) 6-7(5) 6-1. He was one of the favorites to win the Canadian Open as he beat World No. 1, Daniil Medvedev, in the third-round matchup.
On the other hand, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina has had an okay season so far picking up 18 wins and 19 defeats, and also managed to reach the finals of the Monte Carlo final losing to Stefanos Tsitsipas. Since then, he hasn’t made it past the quarterfinals of any tournaments and he faced great criticism in the recent loss to Diego Schwartzman in the first round at the 2022 Canadian Open where he was winning by a set and was also leading 3-0 in the third set before he lost focus to give it all away.
Kyrgios and Fokina have never faced each other before.
