Two players who have been on a bit of form of late then, I am sure Kyrgios will be well up for this game, in his native OZ the crowd will be cheering on every point and I am not surprised his has a huge serve and there is a lot of potential in this young lad, he hits the ball well very flat, he is athletic enough to go the distance and come into the net and kill points off, when he gets in a groove he is very consistent.
