Nick Kyrgios proved that anything really is possible as he saved 9 match points on his way to knocking Richard Gasquet out of Wimbledon in a performance that begs the question – how will anyone find a way to beat him?
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has priced Australian tennis’s brightest prospect at an unlikely $501 to go all the way, but given the 19 year old’s will to win, he’s certain to go down fighting!
Elimination in the next round against Czech Jiri Vesely is the favourite at $1.82, followed by a probable showdown with Rafa Nadal in the Round of 16 ($2.10).
Kyrgios is paying $19 to bow out in the quarters, $31 in the semis, and $126 to make it to the final and lose.
“Kyrgios is just the type of player you want to be backing – any match he’s in isn’t over until the words game, set, match are spoken,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
