THE LOWDOWN

HEAD-TO-HEAD
Last meeting:
N/A

ANTOINE HOANG

  • 23-year-old Antoine Hoang created 15 break point opportunities and took seven of them to shock Leonardo Mayer in their five-set first-round match.
  • The Frenchman was in the spotlight after he beat Fernando Verdasco in four sets at this year’s Roland-Garros, with his unorthodox and sometimes ambidextrous play-style exciting fans.
  • Hoang is currently ranked 104 in the ATP world rankings and will emulate his Grand Slam record set this year at Roland-Garros if he can frustrate Kyrgios here.

NICK KYRGIOS

  • Nick Kyrgios came through the USA’s Steve Johnson in straight sets in their first-round match that was, of course, not without controversy as he argued with the umpire once again.
  • 23-year-old Kyrgios won his second title on a hard court this year when he beat Daniil Medvedev to the Citi Open title in Washington.
  • A win here would see the world number 30 reach the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time since the US Open last year where he lost to Roger Federer in straight sets.

THE PREDICTION

Antoine Hoang represents a relative unknown for many players on the tour and his unorthodox play-style could frustrate Nick Kyrgios, although Hoang has never faced the undisputed king of frustration himself. This match should be a really entertaining watch, with Kyrgios unlikely to cause as much of a stir against, respectfully, lesser competition. It is always difficult to predict a Kyrgios match, but he should proceed to the third round here.
