Our value player has already made into quarterfinals with two solid performances. Find out the tennis pick and if he should be able to keep his winning streak this Friday at ATP Kuala Lumpur.

Nick Kyrgios (7) vs Ivo Karlovic (3)
Nick Kyrgios was our pick as a player to keep an eye on in this event and so far two very solid wins over Santiago Giraldo and Tatsuma Ito not being broken so far in both matches.

Nick said he’s feeling very comfortable on court this week and for sure playing in his mother’s home country is an extra boost to his confidence.

Ivo Karlovic had a very tough start in this competitions against Nikoloz Basilashvili but managed to overcome the Georgian in three sets. Karlovic was far from his best on serve facing 5 break points, being broken twice and winning only 71% of points with first serve.

The Croatian had a very long season with 51 matches played so far and it will be extremely difficult for him to keep the same level in the last tournaments of the year.

Despite not being as consistent on serve like in last months, Karlovic is always a tough opponent to face however Kyrgios knows how to defeat him. They played once this year at Australian Open when the Australian was struggling with a back injury but was still able to emerge victorious in four sets.

Kyrgios is serving at very good level and shouldn’tl get broken on this match where he’s much superior from the baseline. On the other hand Karlovic will have to improve his first serve % points won otherwise he might not even reach a tie break.

Nick is having a very good support on this event, is motivate and is important to mention that last time he reached quarterfinals of an ATP event he made it all the way into the final.

On this match we’re going to add to our tennis picks the value on Nick Kyrgios tennis odds.
