Nick Kyrgios vs. Andy Murray 8/23/21 - Winston-Salem Open Picks & Predictions

Game: Nick Kyrgios vs Andy Murray
Date & Time: 8/23/2021, 1:00 PM UTC
Location: Wake Forest University
Address: USA
TV Channel: Tennis

Australian tennis superstar Nick Kyrgios is set to play at the Winston-Salem Open in the United States as he gets prepared for the US Open. Kyrgios is set to start his tournament against Andy Murray from the United Kingdom. 

Andy Murray enters this tournament having last played at the Cincinnati Masters where he was eliminated during the second round of the tournament. It was not the best performance by Murray but it allowed the Scot to get some court time with the US Open not far away. At the age of 34, it is fair to say that Andy Murray is past his peak but it seems like he is keen to carry on playing and will be hoping that he can have another big run leading into the last portion of the season. This is a tough start to the tournament for Andy Murray as he is playing against a strong player in Nick Kyrgios.

Looking at Nick Kyrgios, the Australian tennis player has struggled as he has won only once since the end of Wimbledon. This season has seen Kyrgios miss a huge portion of the calendar but the Australian is back on the tour. That being said, Nick Kyrgios looks low on confidence and his form is not where it once was. This will be a challenging match for Nick Kyrgios as he faces Andy Murray. 

Andy Murray and Nick Kyrgios have played each other 6 times in the past with Murray winning on 5 occasions and Kyrgios winning just once. The most recent match between these two players was in 2018 where Nick Kyrgios won in 3 sets. 

Free Tennis Pick: Andy Murray

Looking at all the information, I am going to pick Andy Murray to win this match. Neither player is playing well but Murray has more court time and looking the better player leading into this match. I see Andy Murray being good enough to win this match in straight sets.
