Wimbledon day 7 betting: Kyrgios creates a danger spot for Murray

2016 The Championships, day 7Wimbledon, London, England; July 4 – tips by Alex Romanovich



Week 2 at Wimbledon kicks-off tonight with several big names missing, most notably Novak Djokovic. That leaves local hope Andy Murray as favourite, but Aussie hothead Nick Kyrgios believes he has the physical and mental stamina to defeat the Scot in their fourth-round blockbuster. Murray has dropped just 25 games in nine sets and been largely unaffected by the wet weather that has marred the 130th championships. Kyrgios, in contrast, has survived a treacherous draw, including a five-set comeback win over Dustin Brown, several delays and controversies, and was forced to return on Sunday to complete a 6-3 6-7 (2-7) 6-3 6-4 stop-start third-round win over three-time quarter-finalist Feliciano Lopez. Monday will be the fourth day in a row Kyrgios has been forced to play.



“It’s obviously been tough. I feel coming here every day, being on schedule every day nearly, with the rain, it hasn’t been easy for any player going into the locker room, preparing for matches, going back out. But physically, I feel good. Mentally, I feel good. I’ve been to the fourth round at grand slams before. I know what to expect,” Kyrgios said. Having played (and lost) to Murray, one of his best friends on tour, at all three other majors, Kyrgios also knows exactly what to expect from the world No.2, 2013 Wimbledon champion and 10-time grand slam finalist. Kyrgios’s losses to Murray (pictured above) at the majors have come on clay and hard courts. London’s hallowed centre court at Wimbledon brings a different dynamic to the match-up.
