AUSTRALIAN OPEN – DAY 7

 

24th seed Diego Schwartzman will today meet an in-form Rafael Nadal. Will the Argentinian upset last year’s finalist, or will the Spaniard progress beyond the 4th Round of a major for the fourth time in his last five grand slams? In the night sessions, Nick Krygios’ match against Grigor Dimitrov shapes as the highlight.

Nadal vs. Schwartzman

 

Diego Schwartzman has played Rafael Nadal on three occasions and in each of those matches has failed to take a set from the 19-time grand slam winner. However, the Argentinian is playing some of his best tennis to date and has displayed plenty of determination in this tournament, winning a five-setter in the first round and a four-setter last round. Although it remains highly unlikely he’ll have the game to beat Nadal, there’s plenty of value to be had on the 24th seed putting up a good fight like a Tiebreak in the Match ($2.50) and Total Games in the First Set to be Over 9.5 (S2.20)

 

Key Stat: Rafael Nadal has not dropped a set all tournament.

 

Our tip: Nadal to win and Total Games to be under 31.5

Kyrgios vs. Dimitrov

 

Despite being ranked 13 places lower than his Round of 16 opponent, Nick Kyrgios will start firm favourite tonight. The Aussie right-hander has been in good form this tournament, dropping just one set on his way to this point. Importantly, Krygios has also shown plenty of mental toughness, winning all of his tiebreaks so far (four in total). Dimitrov on the other hand has played a five setter against 22-year old American Mackenzie McDonald and been tested by 30th seed Andrey Rublev (6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4). For the record, these players have met on three occasions with the Bulgarian winning two of them, however, Kyrgios was victorious in the last meeting between the pair (Brisbane International semi-final, Jan 6) 3-6, 6-1, 6-4.

 

Key Stat: Nick Kyrgios hasn’t lost a match in 2018 (seven in total)

 

Our tip: Kyrgios to win
