Yoshihito Nishioka vs Nick Kyrgios Prediction

Coming into the final, Kyrgios is unquestionably the favourite. He is playing his best tennis of his career, has more experience than Nishioka, and has already won this competition. However, Nishioka shouldn’t be taken lightly, especially following his victory over Rublev. Kyrgios will be tested by his superb return, and if he wants to defeat the Japanese, he will need to serve effectively. Kyrgios has been serving beautifully all week, which is a blessing. Expect Kyrgios to have enough to win even if it goes the distance.

Kyrgios in 3 is the prediction.
