Jiri Lehecka vs Nick Kyrgios Prediction Tips & Odds – Jun. 7, 2022 12:00 CET
The problematic knee of Nick Kyrgios has cost him a lot of points and achievements but whenever he played during the last three years he was very decent. This will be his first tournament since April and ATP Houston where he opens the grass season against a very unpredictable and dangerous opponent. Jiri Lehecka is a Czech tennis player who is surging in the ATP standings and recently reached the semifinals on his ATP debut in February.

The young Czech player has really made a name for himself and made the breakthrough into the top 100 this year. In Rotterdam, he stunned the fifth seed Denis Shapovalov and then also beat van de Zandschulp and Musetti on his way to the semifinal. Stefanos Tsitsipas was too strong but Lehecka entered the top 100 with that historic result.
He comes to ATP Stuttgart in excellent form and with some memorable wins looking to upset a former top 15 player. He admires Czech Republic´s legend Tomas Berdych and could be their next star since he is only 20 years old. The bookmakers see him as a heavy underdog but we don´t think his chances are so slim as he definitely has all it takes to frustrate Kyrgios and make the game unstable and dramatic.

Grass is the most unpredictable tennis surface and the same could be said about Nick Kyrgios. The wild Australian tennis star is known for his outbursts with the most recent one being a Twitter clash with Bernard Tomic.
Injuries have plagued him recently as he hasn´t played a lot but still has the quality and on a good day can beat any player out there. Lehecka is just the type of a young player who can cause him problems, especially at the start of the grass season. With this experience, Kyrgios should be able to win this match but could drop a set or at least have a tough time.

Jiri Lehecka vs Nick Kyrgios Prediction
A big return game for Kyrgios whose excellent serve should give him the edge but his opponent will not go down without a fight. It is the start of the grass season and surprises are always possible with a lot of players returning or coming unprepared so we decided to avoid predicting the winner.
You can get the biggest value if you take Total Over because Kyrgios should dominate with his serve but Lehecka should make the match interesting and perhaps even stun the Australian.
Prediction: Total Over 21.5
