The first announcement of the 2019 Kooyong Classic draw sees Australia’s Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios face-off against each other on Kooyong’s historic centre court during the event.

 

The two players will use the Kooyong Classic for their final tune-up for the 2019 Australian Open.

 

Tournament director Peter Johnston noted that “for both guys it’s their last competitive match before next week’s AO, so their focus will be on making sure their games are ready.  At the same time it will be fun for the fans to watch it play out given they have never gone head-to-head before”
