Novak Djokovic vs Nick Kyrgios - 9 a.m. ET
Australia’s Nick Kyrgios is tennis’ most perplexing enigma. He’s a tennis prodigy, by all accounts. Supremely gifted, organically talented and one of the best shot-makers in the game, especially when it comes to playing on grass. But he’s mercurial, hot-headed and a polarizing figure on and off the court – qualities that have sidetracked the Aussie and, in part, contributed to his underachieving ways over the course of his career.
Now, at age 27, Kyrgios is closer than he’s ever been to realizing his championship potential. He’s one step away from having his name etched onto the Wimbledon champion honors board, joining an illustrious circle of past champions that includes Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and his next opponent in the Wimbledon men’s final, Novak Djokovic.
Arguably, it doesn’t get much tougher than squaring up to Djokovic in a grand slam final. This sentiment is echoed across multiple sports betting sites with Djokovic pegged as the odds-on favorite. Djokovic is the -385 favorite to win the title with BetMGM. Caesars offers Djokovic at -400 while FanDuel is up to -410.
The three-time defending Wimbledon champion is seeking a fourth straight and seventh overall Wimbledon title. He’s also trying to catch up to Nadal’s all-time record of 22 grand slams. (Djokovic is two behind his arch-rival.)
Oddsmakers rightly tip Kyrgios as the underdog going into the Wimbledon final with odds that range between +300 and +320 on the best betting apps. He’s never contested for a title as big or played in a more important match on a bigger stage than the Centre Court at SW19.
And yet, Kyrgios has never lost to Djokovic. He’s not even dropped a set to the Serbian star in two previous meetings. Although both meetings came in 2017, it’s still an unbeaten record the Aussie can hang his cap on as he attempts to pull off the upset in Sunday’s championship match.
Another advantage Kyrgios has over Djokovic is rest. He was scheduled to play Nadal in the semis, but the Spaniard withdrew due to an abdominal injury.
Speaking of records, Djokovic became the first man to reach 32 grand slam finals after beating Britain’s Cameron Norrie in four sets in Friday’s semifinal. That’s an incredible achievement. Of course, there’s more. One could wax lyrical all day about Djokovic, trotting out everything he’s ever achieved just to underscore why betting against him is a foolhardy exercise.
But we’re going to do it anyway because Kyrgios is the sort of player that can rattle Djokovic. He isn’t infallible, though what he’s done in the game is awesome. And Novak did lose his last grand slam final at the 2021 US Open in straight sets to Daniil Medvedev.
