Kyrgios–Humbert suspended at 6-4, 4-6, 3-6, 6-1, 3-3.
Nick Kyrgios is down in 60th in the world rankings, largely due to his inactivity recently but is surely one of the toughest draws any of the seeds could’ve picked up and he was showing his class.
The matchless 26-year-old has shown little rust after missing four months while staying home in Australia. But he has some work left to do against 21st seed Ugo Humbert, with their match suspended due to curfew at 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 6-1, 3-3 after two hours and 43 minutes.
The pair met in the second round of this year’s Australian Open, where Kyrgios saved two match points against the lefty on his way to a five-set victory after three hours and 25 minutes. This encounter has been equally entertaining while playing to the No.1 Court crowd.
