Kyrgios is unrecognizable in the new season. Famous for his frivolous attitude to tennis, the Australian now plays more responsibly and at the same time demonstrates a great game.
In the first round, Australian Open Nick in three sets dealt with the Italian Lorenzo Sonego (6-2, 7-6, 7-6), and in the second round he defeated the more experienced French tennis player Gilles Simon in four games (6-2, 6-4, 4-6, 7-5).
Khachanov is currently far from his best tennis. As the Russian himself admitted in a recent interview, he does not play as he would like.
In the first round, Australian Open Hachanov defeated the representative of Spain, Mario Villella (4-6, 6-4, 7-6, 6-3). In the second round, Karen managed to break the resistance of the unyielding Michael Imer (6-2, 2-6, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6). The meeting against the representative of Sweden turned out in an incredible way – both tennis players filed for the match, but could not do it, so the fate of the confrontation was decided on a tie-break.

Nick Kyrgios vs Karen Khachanov Game Prediction
Khachanov is far from his best form, as demonstrated by the last match against Imer. The Russian is much mistaken, in his game there is no stability. But all this will be necessary in the match against Kyrgios, who seems to have taken his head and is now playing more responsible.
In addition, there will be an audience on the side of the Australian tennis player, so we offer to bet on his victory in the upcoming meeting.
- Our prediction is the victory of Kyrgios
