Could Kyrgios give Djokovic a run for his money at the AO?
In case the draw wants them to meet, it could be an interesting encounter.
Djokovic is obviously the greatest Australian Open player in the Open Era. Not even the excellent Murray has managed to beat him there. No one. (Speaking of peak-Djokovic, obviously.)
Now, apart from a red-hot Wawrinka, nobody can reach a level high enough to take 3 sets off him.
But what about Kyrgios? His serve is not only a monster when on, but also incredibly accurate. The jerky, sudden motion makes it hard to block, even though it's not even as hard to read as Tomic's. I would like to see his flat, accurate backhand catching Novak off-guard.
No doubt, fitness and footwork-wise, he is a joke compared to Djokovic, and most probably couldn't really go toe-to toe with him in a 4-5 setter. But if he serves amazing, I can see him causing some trouble for the best.
