Djokovic faces Kyrgios in Wimbledon final after Rybakina’s Ladies triumph
‘Kyrgios can be Djokovic’s nightmare’
Kyrgios could prove to be a nightmare for Djokovic in today’s final.
The Aussie ace beat Djokovic on two occasions previously, at an ATP event five years ago, followed by victory at Indian Wells.
Djokovic couldn’t cope with Kyrgios’ serve back then, and he could find it difficult to do so once again, according to the Serb’s old coach.
This is coming from Craig O’Shannessy, who was in Djokovic’s camp on both occasions.
He told the Telegraph: “In many ways, it’s (the final) a nightmare match up for Novak, and it’s a dream match up for Nick. Obviously, Novak’s level and his history at Wimbledon will serve him well, but Nick is in this with a real chance.
“He (Djokovic) couldn’t pick Nick’s serve. In two matches, and 23 service games, Novak didn’t break him once and Nick only faced one break point on serve.”
