Recently, Nick Kyrgios came across an interesting stat that made him look superior to the World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, the World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev, and the new World No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas. On a real note, the Australian star has a better head-to-head ratio against these three top guys.

Nick Kyrgios leads the race 

Kyrgios has played against all three opponents on two occasions and has ended up on the winning side in all those encounters. He played against Djokovic twice in 2017 on the hardcourts and beat him consecutively in straight sets. Against Medvedev, they played twice in 2019, one was on clay and the other on the hardcourt, which went in favor of the Australian player. He played against Tsitsipas twice, in 2019 and 2020, beating him on the hardcourts. 

Reflecting on Kyrgios’ season so far, he has not played much tennis as he was sidelined with an injury since the previous season. He played at the Australian Open and came as far as the third round. He was involved in an epic battle against Dominic Thiem and unfortunately, he lost in five sets.

After that, he took a break from the Tour and made a comeback directly at the Wimbledon Championships. He cruised through the first couple of rounds but had to withdraw midway through his third-round match against Felix Auger-Aliassime due to a shoulder injury.

However, he is back on the tennis courts and was recently seen at the Citi Open. Sadly, he lost in the opening round and was unable to defend his title. We wish him all the luck for the upcoming matches and the rest of the season.
