NICK Kyrgios is bracing for the “nightmare” prospect of facing Bernard Tomic on grass as the one-time Davis Cup teammates close in on a spicy Wimbledon showdown.

Tomic plays Kei Nishikori on Thursday for a likely third-round crack at Kyrgios, a heavy favourite to cruise past Dutchman Robin Haase.

Both Australia’s former quarterfinalists are in fine touch, with the resurgent Tomic fancying his chances of beating Japan’s 24th seed for a third time after chalking up nine wins from his 11 grass-court outings.

A semi-finalist in Stuttgart and Halle and boasting an astonishing 140 aces in his past five matches, four of which were best-of-thress-setters, Kyrgios would have favoured to take down Tomic.

But Kyrgios is wary.
