Nick Krygios and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga are expected to light up Rod Laver Arena in the 3rd Round today. Although Kyrgios starts favourite, plenty will be be tempted by the $3+ odds on the Frenchman. Rafael Nadal’s campaign also continues when he takes to the court against Serbian challenger Damir Dzumhur.

Krygios vs. Tsonga

In what shapes as the match of the day, Kyrgios takes on evergreen Frenchman Jo-Wilfired Tsonga. Expected to have a raucous home crowd behind him, the Aussie starts favourite with his opponent now out beyond $2.30. In that respect, the very generous odds on the 15th seed are well worth considering especially as Tsonga has reached the 4th Round (or higher) in eight of his last nine contested tournaments at Melbourne Park. Still, Kyrgios is riding high on confidence after a solid lead-up to the Australian Open and two straight-sets victories in the competition so far. Will this one go to five sets?

 

Key Stat: In their only previous meeting, Krygios won the first set before succumbing in three.

 

Our tip: Tsonga in five

Nadal vs. Dzumhur

Rafael Nadal has won through to the third round of the tournament without dropping a set and giving away only 16 games in the process. However, things are expected to get a little tougher for the Spaniard when he lines up against 28th seed Damir Dzumhur on Margaret Court Arena. Dzumhur won the only previous meeting between this pairing (Nadal retired in the third) and enters this on the back of a four set win over local hope John Milman in the 2nd Round. Although it still remains highly unlikely Dzumhur will be able to overcome Nadal, expect plenty to take a nibble on the Serbian in line markets.

 

Key Stat: Damir Dzumhur has never progressed beyond the 3rd round in any Grand Slam event.

 

Our tip: Nadal to win and take the first set in over 9.5 games.
