Lorenzo Sonego vs Nick Kyrgios – Match Predictions

Under 25.5 Games

Sonego’s recent win over Matteo Berrettini saw him make little work of his compatriot. The match only lasted 15 games and it will be a short encounter against Kyrgios, who is returning from a long injury layoff and look unlikely to be at his best. The Australian will not roll over against him as Yibing Wu found out the hard way. Wu needed 21 games to defeat Kyrgios, one game fewer than Christopher O’Connell required to defeat Sonego. With their recent matches not going the distance, expect an Under 25.5 games conclusion to this meeting.

Lorenzo Sonego to Win

Sonego’s transition from clay to grass after impressing at French Open and Rome Masters did not go according to plan. He overcame Berrettini but O’Connell made the most of his rustiness. It was not easy as they were separated by a tie-break result in the first set that made the difference. On the other hand, Kyrgios is making a long-awaited return to court and has yet to end his five-match losing streak. Based on this, we are backing a win for Sonego.

Lorenzo Sonego vs Nick Kyrgios Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Halle Open.

Lorenzo Sonego

The Italian professional tennis player has displayed a mixed recent form on the ATP circuit. Sonego has improved his ranking to 41 in singles, thanks to his improved performances on clay court. On the clay court swing of the tour, he crashed out early in Monte-Carlo Masters, Munich Open and Madrid Masters but rebounded in the Rome Masters, where he reached round three while making it to round 4 in French Open, where he came second in a thrilling five-set match against Karen Khachanov.

Nick Kyrgios

Injuries have hampered Kyrgios’ progress, going four matches winless before taking a break to address it. He had planned for a return at the French Open but sustained a foot injury in a home invasion incident. This further delayed his return to the court by a month. Even after a six-month hiatus, it did not go according to plan, succumbing to a 2-0 defeat to Yibing Wu at Stuttgart Open.  It has been an uncertain series of events, especially after a year where he reached the final of Wimbledon but will fancy his chances against Sonego on the grass court, a surface he favours.

Lorenzo Sonego vs Nick Kyrgios Head to Head

Duels between Sonego and Kyrgios have gone in one, in favour of the Australian star. He will be looking to end his five-match losing streak with a win over Sonego.
