Nick Kyrgios vs Yibing Wu – Match Predictions

2-0 to Nick Kyrgios

Against We, Kyrgios is poised to make a resounding statement at the Stuttgart Open. Despite his injury setbacks, Kyrgios’ explosive serve and aggressive forehand make him a force to be reckoned with on the grass court. His experience and impeccable track record on this surface give him a significant advantage over the Chinese rival. With Yu losing his last two games, albeit on the red surface, it seems unlikely he can match Kyrgios’ superior skills. Based on this, we are backing the mercurial Australian to claim a victory in straight sets, as he marks his return on the ATP tour after a six-month hiatus.

Under 22.5 Games

Given the circumstances, this highly anticipated match is likely to see blows exchanged but give a result in under 22.5 games. While Kyrgios holds the advantage in terms of overall quality, his extended absence from the ATP Tour and recent string of losses raise questions about his match fitness. Despite his pedigree and ability to triumph over Wu, Kyrgios may find himself conceding some games to his determined opponent. The combination of Kyrgios’ natural talent and Wu’s relative inexperience on the big stage suggests a scenario where the match will be decided relatively quickly, resulting in a lower total number of games played. Even with the potential for extended rallies and competitive moments, the likelihood of the match concluding with under 22.5 games remains high.

Nick Kyrgios vs Yibing Wu Preview

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

Nick Kyrgios

Nick Kyrgios, an Australian tennis star, has faced a series of challenges with injuries in 2023. He missed the Australian Open and in January underwent surgery for a knee injury. Poised to return for the French Open, unfortunately, he had to miss due to a foot injury sustained during an alleged armed robbery at his home on May 1. He had a laceration on his left foot near the baby toe in the assault that made on-court training difficult. Despite these setbacks, Kyrgios’s knee is reported to be in excellent condition, offering hope for his return to top form.

Yibing Wu

While Kyrgios has encountered injury obstacles throughout the year, Wu is hoping to improve his recent 3-6 losing run since Indian Wells. During this period, his only wins have come in the lower-ranked ATP Geneva, while his only ATP 1000 win came against Richard Gasquet at the Rome Masters. He will be looking to put his clay court woes behind him and hope for a better return on the fast-paced grass court.
