Nick Kyrgios

With round two wrapping up and round three starting, here are five matches to keep and eye on if you are headed to Mason.

Nick Kyrgios vs winner of Hyeon Chung vs (4) Juan Martin del Potro

Kyrgios is a fun player to watch. Hitting a serve that constantly clocks in at over 130 mph with groundstrokes to match, Kyrgios is becoming one of the more exciting and popular players on the tour. Even more fun to watch is his on court antics. Kyrgios will often talk with fans during the match, and isn't afraid to show his emotions with the umpire and line judges. While either opponent would be a good match to watch, if del Potro advances to face Kyrgios, you might want to grab a seat early.

(4) Angelique Kerber vs (13) Madison Keys

Both players struggled in their first matches, with Keys having already rebound in the second round. Kerber had a bye in the first round. The interesting part of this match is seeing if Kerber can rebound from her first round struggles, or if Keys can maintain her momentum built up in her win over Camila Giorgi.

Marton Fucsovics vs Stan Wawrinka

Wawrinka got a big win over Kei Nishikori last night. As continues his climb back to the top, Wawrinka will face a challenger who hasn't faced too much challenge in Fucsovics. The winner of this match sets up a potential quarter final match against Roger Federer.

Milos Raonic vs Denis Shapovalov

Shapovalov is coming off a big win over the 14 seed Kyle Edmunds. Shapovalov faced a tough opponent in the first round in the American Frances Tiafoe. This will be an interesting matchup between two sons of Canada as the winner will face off against the winner of...

(5) Grigori Dimitrov vs (10) Novak Djokovic

Dimitrov is the defending Western and Southern Open Champion. Djokovic is the recently crowned Wimbledon champion. The winner of this match could very well find themselves in the final.

Bonus Match

Amanda Anisimova vs Petra Martic

The future of tennis will be on display in this match as the 16 year-old Anisimova will face off with the 27 year-old Martic. Martic was the 2017 US Open Juniors Champion and has potential to be a future star in the WTA.
