Nick Kyrgios aims for a history-making upset on Sunday at All England Club. Kyrgios, making his first grand slam final appearance, takes on No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic for the 2022 Wimbledon crown on the men’s side. The match is set to begin at 9 a.m. ET in London. Djokovic is the three-time reigning champion in the event and a 19-time grand slam winner. He advanced by defeating Cameron Norrie 3-1 in the semifinals. Kyrgios advanced to the final after Rafael Nadal (abdomen injury) withdrew before their semifinal matchup. He had never advanced past the quarterfinals in a prior grand slam.
Djokovic is the -350 favorite (risk $350 to win $100) in the latest Djokovic vs. Kyrgios odds from Caesars Sportsbook, with Kyrgios getting +290 (risk $100 to win $290) as the underdog. Caesars sets the over-under for total games at 39.5, with Djokovic favored by 4.5 games in the latest 2022 Wimbledon odds.

Novak Djokovic vs. Nick Kyrgios preview
Djokovic’s experience could be key in this spot. He is playing in his 32nd grand slam final, winning 19 titles on the biggest stage in tennis, and Djokovic already has six Wimbledon championships to his name. It is not as if those victories are far in the rearview mirror either, as Djokovic is a three-time reigning champion in London. He has the superior return game in this match, and Djokovic is a large step up in class for Kyrgios from an opponent perspective. Djokovic is the player with better fitness, and Kyrgios has not faced anyone of his stature at Wimbledon.
Still, Kyrgios is more than capable of pulling an upset, and the 27-year-old is actually 2-0 in career matches against Djokovic. Kyrgios is arguably playing the best tennis of his life, losing only five sets in the tournament, and he has the rest advantage after advancing through the semifinal as a result of a withdrawal from Nadal. Kyrgios is making his grand slam debut, which could cause nerves, but he has a dominant service game that can level the playing field. Grass is also favorable for Kyrgios as evidenced by his 12-2 record on the surface this season, and Djokovic has battled bouts of inconsistency during the tournament, including early struggles in the semifinal against Norrie.
