Nick Kyrgios: 'Milos Raonic possesses best serve in tennis'

Nick Kyrgios believes that Wimbledon third-round opponent Milos Raonic possesses the best serve in men's tennis.

Nick Kyrgios has admitted that it will be tough for him to defuse Milos Raonic's serve when they clash in the Wimbledon third round on Friday.

The duo meet for the second successive year after Raonic's last-eight win in 2014, but despite the challenge that awaits him, the Australian insists that he is confident heading into their last-32 tussle.

The 20-year-old is quoted by Fox Sports as saying: "That serve, I think, it's possibly the best in the game at the moment.

"After last year's performance against him, I'm confident I can do well, but at the same time, if a guy is serving as well as he is, it's going to be tough.

"I know what I have to do out there. But at the same time, there's not so much you can do on his serve."

Kyrgios has overcome Diego Schwartzman and Juan Monaco to reach the last 32, while Raonic holds win over Daniel Gimeno-Traver and Tommy Haas.
