Nick Kyrgios' 2022 US Open campaign continues on Friday when he takes on American player JJ Wolf for a place in the fourth round of the competition.

The controversial Aussie has enjoyed a trouble-free US Open so far, cruising past best friend and doubles partner Thanasi Kokkinakis in the first round before dispatching France's Benjamin Bonzi in the second.

This could prove to be one of the most entertaining encounters of the third round. Here is everything you need to know about JJ Wolf.

J.J. Wolf, whose full name is Jeffrey John Wolf, is a 23-year-old tennis player from Cincinnati. The World No.87 made his Grand Slam debut back in 2020, reaching the third round of the US Open in an impressive debut display.

The youngster, who rocks an impressive mullet hairstyle, comes up against the bad boy of tennis in the third round as he looks to achieve a career-best Grand Slam finish.

Wolf has already caused one upset this summer, knocking out Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets in the US Open first round before beating the Chilean, Alejandro Tabilo, last time out.
