OKBet sports betting tips on Sunday’s match between Djokovic and Kyrgios, Novak Djokovic broke the hearts of many British people when he beat Cameron Norrie in the semi-finals. On Sunday afternoon, he will defend his Wimbledon title against Nick Kyrgios.
On Friday, the 20-time grand slam winner won by more than 31.5 games, which gave us an event winner. Then, in the women’s final, Ons Jabeur and Elena Rybakina went to three sets, which was our top pick at 11/8.
The odds of Djokovic beating Kyrgios in the men’s final are only 1/4, but the unpredictable Aussie has a few things going for him, so let’s look at them in our Djokovic vs Kyrgios OKBet Online betting tips.
Novak Djokovic vs Nick Kyrgios
If these two had played in the final last year, it would have been a war of attrition. However, since Djokovic was kicked out of Australia in January, things have gotten better between them.
In the last few years, Kyrgios has said some harsh things about the Serb. For example, he said that the Serb has a “huge self-esteem problem” because he wants to be liked so much, while Djokovic said 18 months ago, “I don’t have much respect for him.”
But Kyrgios was very upset with how Australian officials treated Djokovic over his Covid vaccination status, and now they have what the Aussie calls “a bit of a bromance,” even sending each other messages on social media.
“I think everyone knows that for a while there, there was no love lost.”
When asked about Kyrgios’s comments after his four-set win over Norrie, Djokovic smiled and said, “I don’t know if I can call it a bromance yet, but we definitely get along better than we did before January of this year.”
“But when things were really hard for me in Australia, he was one of the few players who publicly supported me and stood by me. This is something I really like. So I really admire him for that.”
That’s the story behind Sunday’s match, but in tennis terms, Kyrgios has an advantage because Rafael Nadal pulled out of their semi-final match because he hurt his stomach.
Kyrgios has also never lost to Djokovic. They played each other twice in Acapulco and Indian Wells five years ago, and Kyrgios won both matches in straight sets. Those wins should help him in the future.
The number 40 player in the world has served the most aces (120) at the championships and has only been broken six times in two five-set matches.
Djokovic, who has won Wimbledon six times, became the first man to reach 32 grand slam finals when he won his 27th straight grass-court match. He has also only lost one of his last 19 grand slam semi-finals, which is an amazing record.
He hasn’t lost a match at Wimbledon in five years, but in the last two rounds, he lost the first set, so Kyrgios may be a good bet at 9/5 in that market.
But the underdog has lost the first set in three of his five matches, so one of our Djokovic vs. Kyrgios betting tips at OKBet could be to bet on either player to lose the first set and win the match at 29/10.
It might seem silly to play against Djokovic, but he has lost sets in four of his six matches and hasn’t looked very strong over the past two weeks.
Not many players can say they have never lost to Djokovic, even if those wins happened in 2017. Kyrgios is confident because his service has been working well, even though he had trouble with his shoulder against Brandon Nakashima.
That didn’t seem to bother him when he beat Cristian Garin in straight sets, so our last Djokovic vs. Kyrgios betting tip is for the bad boy of tennis to win at 29/10.
