Open the confrontation between the teams of Great Britain and Australia will be a duel between Cameron Norrie and Nick Kirgios. The meeting will take place on January 9th. Which tennis player will win? – read in our prediction.
Norrie is not in the best way prepared for the new season. Yes, the Briton has two victories, but they played against players from the third and ninth hundred ratings. He beat Dimitar Kuzmanov with great difficulty (6-2, 3-6, 6-2), and Alexander Kozbinov declassified with the score 6-2, 6-2. In another match, Cameron miserably lost to Steve Darcis (2-6, 4-6).
The UK team has no alternatives, so they are forced to put Norry. But with him this team has little chance of achieving a positive outcome for themselves.
Kyrgios with all responsibility approached the matches for his team. Despite the fact that Nick continues to fool around, this does not prevent him from winning. At first, the Australian outplayed the German Struff (6-4, 7-6), and then defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas (7-6, 6-7, 7-6).
For two matches on the account of the representative of Australia 45 aces. He never lost his serve and acted perfectly in the draws. Kirgios loves to speak to his native fans. He always tries to demonstrate his best game.

Cameron Norrie and Nick Kyrgios Prediction
Norri is not yet ready to perform in the new season. He is far from his playing form. It is unlikely that the Briton will be able to create problems for the favorite. Kyrgios demonstrates a phenomenal game, so such an opponent should pass easily.
