THERE’S never a dull moment with Nick Kyrgios and the Aussie wild child is under increased scrutiny after his Wimbledon meltdown.
Today he plays just his second match since the Championships and it’s a first-ever meeting with Spain’s Fernando Verdasco.
Kyrgios is 7-11 favourite at Unibet in the Rogers Cup clash in Montreal while Verdasco is a 13-10 shot at Boylesports and a tiebreak in the match pays 11-10 at bet365.
Other notable matches today include in-form American Steven Johnson aiming for an upset against David Goffin and Alexandr Dolgopolov looking to do likewise against the inconsistent Grigor Dimitrov.
There’s a busy day of Rogers Cup ladies matches in Toronto with the likes of Victoria Azarenka – second title favourite at 10-1 with Ladbrokes – and Venus Williams in action.
The ladies also take centre stage on the cricket oval with a one-off Ashes Test between England and Australia at Canterbury while there’s also Econo Tour cycling and Major League Baseball among the sporting highlights.
