Kyrgios and Humbert to square off at Wimbledon in epic rematch

·

In what was one of the most exciting matches of the 2021 Australian Open, Nick Kyrgios and Ugo Humbert will face each other again on English turf at the 2021 Wimbledon tournament.

The draw for the tennis competition was released on Friday evening, where it was revealed the Greek Australian will face the Frenchman.

For those who may not remember, Kyrgios prevailed against Humbert faced in the second round of Australian Open, winning a five set thriller.

The Greek Australian had a comical response when he found out who his opponent was going to be.

Stefanos Tsitsipas was drawn with American Frances Tiafoe. The two last faced each other in 2018 during the Next Gen ATP Finals group stage, where Tsitsipas got a convincing three-set victory.

Tsitsipas became the first Greek player to reach a Grand Slam final in June, yet facing World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the final, he was outplayed by the best.

“I believe I’m able to play for titles like this. Despite my loss today, I have faith in my game and I very much believe I can get to that point very soon,” Tsitsipas said at the time of his loss.

“If I don’t downgrade myself, I see no reason for me not to be holding a trophy one day.”

Maria Sakkari similarly enjoyed incredible success at the Roland Garros, reaching the semi-final before narrowly losing to Barbora Krejčíková. The Greek will face Dutchwoman Arantxa Rus in what is expected to be a strong run for Greeks in the tournament.
