Match Kyrgios vs Khachanov begins 14.08.2019 at 17:00 CET
Kyrgios finally started to play tennis instead of performing all sorts of unsportsmanlike acts, and draw audience attention on himself. It was never a question whether the Australian has quality to achieve good results or not, no matter that he denies loving the sport. If he got a bit more serious and behaved more politely he would be certainly positioned among the top five players in the world.
Kyrgios had the best rating near the end of 2016 when he was World’s no. 13. He currently occupies the 27th place in the ATP rank list with win/loss ratio of 18-11. In his career he won six ATP titles so far, out of which two this season. He won tournaments in Acapulco and Washington where he defeated in the finals A. Zverev and D. Medvedev, respectively.
Thanks to good results Khachanov become a frequent guest of our most recent analyses. It turns out that the Russian has problem with sports psychology and mental strength. When he reaches final stages of a tournament he cannot play anywhere near the expected level. Despite all this Khachanov reached the 8th place of the ATP list, which is the best rating in his career so far.
That rating went down for one place in past seven days, which is completely negligible. Despite his progress in the ATP list Khachanov doesnt have impressive win/loss ratio. It is slightly positive and stands right now at 21-8. The Russian won four ATP titles so far where the most significant is one won nearthe end of last season when he won the Masters in Paris. At nearly finished Masters in Montreal he reached the semi-finals when he lost to D. Medvedev.
