Nick Kyrgios vs Ugo Humbert Preview
The early money has been coming in on Kyrgios here, and I like the $1.85 straight up while you can get it. At 80% of his best, Kyrgios is the better player here and the match ultimately rests on his racket.
Humbert is a solid opponent and has strung a few good years together, earning him the #29 seed here. His performances at grand slam level haven’t been anything special, going just 5-8 straight up and 0-2 at the Australian Open.
The obvious question here is whether Kyrgios is anything close to his best. Despite facing some tough draws over the years, he has a very strong 15-7 straight up record at the Aus Open, his best in any grand slam.
The conditions suit his game perfectly and having at least some fans on his side is a clear advantage. I’m not expecting it to be pretty, but I think he does enough to get the win here.
