There is bound to be some good entertainment on Tuesday at Wimbledon as Nick Kyrgios steps into action.

The Australian hasn’t played anywhere since appearing at his home Grand Slam in February.

But he will draw plenty of the spotlight at SW19. Kyrgios gets a tricky opener against the up and coming Ugo Humbert.

Nick Kyrgios Preview – Can Kyrgios return with a win

It has been only two tournaments that Nick Kyrgios has played this year. The first was Melbourne 2 when he lost in the third round.

He went to the Australian Open Grand Slam then and fell in the third round there to Dominic Thiem in an epic five-set match.

So that’s all that Kyrgios has done for the year, a W4 L2 record.

Will he show up at Wimbledon in the first round on Tuesday and pick up a victory?

In the match outright for tennis betting, Kyrgios is the 7/4 underdog* (odds taken 04:48 GMT on June 28th 2021).

That’s easy enough to understand for tennis betting, considering that he has barely played.

Listening to him about things ahead of the tournament, he sounds relaxed and is treating this as a bit of a vacation.

But that’s the Kyrgios way and not necessarily easily written off.

So back to that 2021 Australian Open. He met Ugo Humbert in the second round at the tournament.

It was a five-set victory that Kyrgios took.

Our betting prediction:
Humbert 3-1 set betting

(odds taken 04:48 GMT on June 28th 2021)


That was the second match between Kyrgios and Humbert, the former being awarded a win in the first meeting because of a retirement by Kyrgios.

The best finish for Kyrgios at Wimbledon was on his debut, running to the quarter-finals in 2014.

His returns have been declining since then.

It’s been a first round, third round and then second round exit for Kyrgios in his last three appearances.

He is the kind of player that mixes things up and is unpredictable, so we think it may be worth punting for a 13/8 quote in tennis betting on 4 Total Sets* (odds taken 04:48 GMT on June 28th 2021).


Ugo Humbert Preview – Humbert set to make progress?

World Number 25 Ugo Humbert will be looking to see off a big name in the draw of Wimbledon 2021.

The Frenchman is the current 4/9 odds-on favourite in the outright market for tennis betting* (odds taken 04:48 GMT on June 28th 2021).

There has been grass court form by Humbert recently. He picked up the title in Halle Germany.

During that title run, he saw off a couple of big guns as well in the form of Alexander Zverev and Andrey Rublev.

In his follow-up tournament in Mallorca, he pulled out ahead of his second-round match.

That leaves him with a W15 L13 on the ATP Tour this year heading into Wimbledon

Ugo Humbert will cause Kyrgios problems because he is an awkward left-handed opponent to deal with.

The Frenchman has proven form this season with that title in Germany.

There is the other factor of having had a lot more playing time, so we think that Humbert won this.

But we are going to pull towards Kyrgios taking a set.

So the Ugo Humbert 3-1 set betting option at 3/1 for Wimbledon tennis betting is the option to roll with* (odds taken 04:48 GMT on June 28th 2021).

Whatever the outcome, this does have the look of being a very good match.


Nick Kyrgios vs Ugo Humbert Betting Advice

We can’t get there to support the win for Nick Kyrgios because of a lack of playing time. It’ll be a surprise if he is match sharp.

He is supremely talented, we’re not arguing that, but a lack of competitive time on the court is a hindrance.

Also, his form at Wimbledon hasn’t been red hot in the last few years ago, so it’s the Humbert 3-1 set betting option we are going with at 3/1* (odds taken 04:48 GMT on June 28th 2021).


Key Facts – Nick Kyrgios vs Ugo Humbert Betting Tip

  • Nick Kyrgios hasn’t played since February’s Australian Open
  • Nick Kyrgios beat Humbert at the 2021 Australian Open
  • Ugo Humbert recently won a grass court title in Halle, Germany


Their meeting earlier this year at the Australian Open was a fantastic match going all the way to a deciding set.

We don’t think that this gets there because Kyrgios could run out of steam before that.

So an Ugo Humbert -3.5 Games Handicap at 10/11 is another option for Wimbledon tennis betting* (odds taken 04:48 GMT on June 28th 2021).
