TennisSection previews the 2022 Montreal Open as Nick Kyrgios takes on Hubert Hurkacz in the quarterfinals on Friday, August 12th, 2022.
Will Nick Kyrgios get the win? Will Hubert Hurkacz pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have the redhot Nick Kyrgios taking on yet another top player. Who will triumph and move on to the semifinals at the 2022 Montreal Open?
Nick Kyrgios has been playing unreal this week, obviously taking down Daniil Medvedev but continuing that form today, crushing good friend Alex de Minaur 6-2 6-3. I expect more of the same from him as he faces Hubert Hurkacz in the last eight. Although Hurkacz can be dangerous, the only thing that’s kept him in the tournament is his serve. I expect Nick to bring on yet another masterclass as he aims to advance to the last 4 here at the 2022 Montreal Open.
Hubert Hurkacz barely managed against Albert Ramos-Vinolas, saving a matchpoint to take him out in a 3rd set tiebreaker. As he comes up against Nick Kyrgios, he’s gonna have a real tough time. Hurkacz has been struggling since his win in Halle, and as of now there is no way that he’d be able to outclass Kyrgios from the back of the court, if he even has 1 bad service game, the set is likely gone. If he’s at his best, this one could be an absolute blockbuster, but unfortunately for Hubert I don’t see him being much of a presence in this one as the two clash for a place in the semifinals at the 2022 Montreal Open.
Nick Kyrgios and Hubert Hurkacz have met once before, with Hubert Hurkacz leading the head to head 1-0. Their one and only match came in the semifinals of Halle, with Hurkacz prevailing in a 3rd set tiebreaker. That came on the grass before Kyrgios began his incredible winning streak, and I don’t expect that match to mean all too much here as Hurkacz isn’t playing nearly as well right now. Let’s see if Kyrgios can keep it up and knock out yet another big name as he looks to move on to the semifinals at the 2022 Montreal Open.
