"Greek duel" at Wimbledon
“I feel like there's not a single person here who doesn't know Nick. We have played opponents and had great matches, at a high level. I have a lot of respect for his game and the fact that he can use his talents. It will be a challenge on grass, he is a great opponent on this surface", said "Tsitsifast" a few days ago, referring to his Greek aviator opponent, whom he defeated a few weeks ago in the Halle tournament and even with an upset (5-7 , 6-2, 6-4).
In the 4 times the 2 tennis players have met so far, Kyrgios (No. 40 in the world) has three wins, against Tsitsipas (No. 5) one. In addition to his victory in the Halle tournament, the Greek-Australian prevailed in 2019 in Washington with 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7) and in 2020 in ATP Australia with 7-6(7), 6-7( 3), 7-6(5), while Tsitsipas won 6-3, 6-4 in last year's Laver Cup.
