NICK KYRGIOS has claimed he can beat anyone at Wimbledon as he prepares to play the “villain-type role” against Britain’s Paul Jubb.

The flamboyant world No.45 has never got past the last eight at a Slam and is famous for rows with umpires and underarm serves.

But the Australian said: “I‘ve played top-10 players in the world this year and made them look pretty ordinary. If I’m feeling confident and playing well, I can beat more or less anyone.”

But he knows British wildcard Jubb will have the support tomorrow.

“I’ve got to ride the waves emotionall­y out there because the crowd is going to be behind the local,” said Kyrgios (above). “I’m used to wearing that kind of black hat, the villain-type role. I’ll embrace it.”

Jubb said: “If he serves underarm to me, I will probably laugh!”
