Nick Kyrgios vs Ugo Humbert Tips


The undisputed no.1 “Bad Boy” of tennis Nick Kyrgios takes on the rapidly rising 22-year old French prospect Ugo Humbert in one of the standout matchups of the Australian Open second round. 

I’m picking Kyrgios to continue to display the surprising sharpness he showed winning his first round match against Frederico Silva in straight sets.
  
Kyrgios will have to work hard for his victory, however, and I’m seeing this match going the full five sets.

  • Kyrgios defeated Silva 6-4 6-4 6-4 on Monday 
  • Kyrgios hammered down 14 aces and kept his serve at 80%  
  • Kyrgios reached fourth round in Melbourne in 2020 
  • Humbert won two ATP titles in 2020 and won in four sets in the first round 
  • Humbert defeated Medvedev, Shapovalov, Isner, Fognini and Tsitsipas in 2020 

Head to Head 


Kyrgios and Humbert have played each other only once – at the ATP event in Acapulco in 2020. Kyrgios was forced to retire injured after losing the opening set 6-3. 

It was that knee injury that would require surgery and put an end to his season. 

Nick Kyrgios Form


Kyrgios had played just three matches at last week’s ATP 250 warm-up event prior to Monday’s win. He lost to Borna Coric in the third round, but despite a lack of match play Kyrgios looked remarkably sharp and focused defeating Federico Silva on Monday. 

Kyrgios played just nine matches in 2020, and after exiting the ATP event in Acapulco in February, he didn’t play another tennis match all year. 

Prior to that, Kyrgios had reached the last-16 at the Australian Open, going out to Rafa Nadal in a four-set thriller. 

Ugo Humbert Form

 
Humbert played just one match prior to the Australian Open – losing to James Duckworth last week at one of the two warm-up events in Melbourne. 

Humbert had an outstanding 2020, winning his first ATP titles in Auckland and Antwerp, reaching the quarterfinals of the Paris Masters, and defeating big names like Stefanos Tsitsipas, Pablo Carreno Busta, Fabio Fognini, Denis Shapovalov and Daniil Medvedev. 

Humbert defeated Yasutaka Uchiyama in four sets in the first round to set up this showdown.
