Nick Kyrgios started his Wimbledon 2022 campaign with a slight hitch as he was taken to a five-set marathon by the Brit, Paul Jubb. Kyrgios managed to hold his nerves in that match to win 3-6, 6-1, 7-5, 6-7, 7-5 and he proceeded to face the 2022 Queen’s club runner-up Filip Krajinovic in the second round. This time his performance was absolutely clinical as he dispatched the 26th seed in straight sets.
Flip Krajinovic came into the Wimbledon 2022 main draw in great form but was beaten mercilessly by Nick Kyrgios as he lost the match 2-6, 3-6, 1-6. This display of dominance by the Australian is the reason why he believes that he has a chance to win at Wimbledon. He has repeatedly called himself one of the best grass-court players on the tour and performance like today is the proof of why he thinks so.
Nick Kyrgios’s best chance at a Grand Slam is most definitely at Wimbledon.
Kyrgios will move onto the third round of Wimbledon 2022 and he will most likely face Stefanos Tsitsipas there. Nick has a positive head-to-head score against Tsitsipas and defeated Tsitsipas in Stuttgart Open where he reached the semifinal, losing to Andy Murray. In the post-match press conference, Kyrgios talked about his previous games and his performance today. He said:
“I’ve been playing really good tennis for a month. Today I was in the area with good body language. I wanted to remind everyone that I’m pretty good. I ticked this tournament in my calendar. This is my best chance to win a Grand Slam.” His best result at Wimbledon came in 2014 when he reached the quarterfinal at SW19, defeating Rafael Nadal in the fourth round. He would look to go further this time and he might even get an opportunity to face Rafa again for a spot in the semifinal.
