David Goffin vs Nick Kyrgios – Match Predictions

With both players setting their sights on a place in the next round, these are our predictions and tips for this match

David Goffin to Win

It’s important to point out that Nick Kyrgios had a solid run last year; as he reached the final of this tournament, losing to Novak Djokovic. However, the Australian player has not had a lot of action this year. As a matter of fact, Kyrgios has played only one match in 2023; at the Stuttgart Open a couple of weeks ago, where he lost to Wu Yibing in straight sets. Heading into this match, the 28 year old has lost five matches in a row, stretching back to the previous year. Considering the obvious fitness concerns, we are leaning towards David Goffin for the victory.

At Least 40 Total Games

Although we believe that David Goffin will win this match, we don’t think he’ll do so in straight sets. For one, the Belgian player suffered three losses in his last four skirmishes with Nick Kyrgios; the last time he defeated the Australian in straight sets was in 2016. We don’t expect this to be a one-sided contest; and that’s why we are backing the over 39.5 games option for this match.

David Goffin

It’s important to point out that David Goffin made it through to the Wimbledon main draw as a wild card; he has not been very consistent in recent weeks, losing five of his last 10 matches. The Belgian player will hope to level his head-to-head record with Nick Kyrgios as he takes on the Australian player today.

Nick Kyrgios

On the other hand, Nick Kyrgios is coming off a straight sets loss to Wu Yibing at the Stuttgart Open; he has lost his last five singles matches, including exhibitions. Interestingly, the Australian player’s loss to Yibing was his first and only match in 2023; he was a finalist at Wimbledon last year.
