Kyrgios defeated Sebastian Baez in the first round, and fought the defending champion Daniil Medvedev in the second round. Both players in particular won the title on 7 August. While the reigning world No. 1 won the Los Cabos Open, the Australian lifted the Citi Open trophy.
Medevev’s good start saw Kyrgios serve and stay in the opening set at 5-4. Then the Russian spent a couple of set points on his pitch, but could not close it. However, he did his job in the ensuing tiebreak.
Kyrgios started the second set, breaking the opponent’s serve and increasing the score 2:0. He kept the result between them until the end of the set, repulsing it with ease.
The deciding set was more one-sided, with the Australian winning the last five games of the match, 6-7(2), 6-4, 6-2.
Alex de Minaur began his Canadian Open campaign with a hard-fought victory over Denis Shapovalov in straight sets. In the second round he was against Grigor Dimitrov.
Neither player was able to create a break point in the first set, resulting in a tiebreak. Dimitrov led 4-1 but De Minor won six in a row to end the set.
Then the Bulgarian tennis player interrupted the opponent’s serve to start the second set, but immediately missed this advantage in the next game. Both players had multiple break point chances in the next two games, but neither was able to convert them.
Ultimately, Dimitrov lost during the serve and remained in the match with a score of 6:5. De Minaur advanced to the next round with a 7-6(4), 7-5 win.
This will be the first meeting between Kyrgios and De Minaur, so the personal score is 0-0 for now.
