It's on. The match we wanted to see when the draw came out. Who's your money on?

I just hope Nick has recovered physically after the war he's just been in.

I hope Kyrgios can recover physically. If he does, this could be an epic.

I'm predicting Nadal in 4 given their time on court and Nick's potential injury problem.

Nadal will definitely have his work cut out for him when it comes to actually breaking the Kyrgios serve. Kyrgios will also like his chances of breaking Nadal moreso than Karen in the last 2 sets.

I'll go Nadal in 4, but I can see a world where it's a straight set or a 5 set banger if Kyrgios has enough in the tank and Nadal has a bad day.

Physical recovery not the most important factor. Mental recovery is way harder considering the Simon-match and above all else the Khachanov one.

obviously mental doesn't mean shit when you can't properly move anymore

Rafa won in 4 at Wimbledon 2019, and Kyrgios is better on grass than hardcourt and was 100% fit at Wimbledon, so your prediction makes no sense....

Most likely Kyrgios wont even show up. He will pretend to be injured and withdraw. He doesnt want to get humiliated on the court.

Nadal in straights...Nick's apathy towards his physical fitness will show in his inability to fully recover and mentally, he will suffer his usual lapses, and the night match conditions will help Nadal temper Kyrgios' aggressive/bold game style, allowing Nadal to progress to the QF

If Rafa returns great, he should win this one in 3 straight sets. If Rafa returns ordinary, he should win this in 4 sets.

Other than Kyrgios's serve, what other aspect of his game can hurt Rafa?
