The final two quarter finals on the men’s side of the Australian Open draw take place today with relatively unknown American Tennys Sandgren taking on new cult hero Hyeon Chung. Reigning champion Roger Federer will then take to the court later that night when he meets 19th seed Tomas Berdych.

Sandgren vs. Chung

Having defeated six-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic to reach this point of the tournament, Hyeon Chung enters his match against Tennys Sandgren as the outright favourite. Although his American opponent has claims, Chung has been a pillar of strength this tournament, dropping just three sets on the way to his first ever grand slam quarter final. 98th ranked Sandgren cannot be written off however, and the right hander will be looking to replicate the form that saw him overcome the highly rated Dominic Thiem last round and and three-time grand slam winner Stan Warwinka in the Round of 64.

 

Key Stat: Chung beat Sandgren 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 in the only previous meeting between the pair (Auckland Open, Jan 9, 2018).

 

Our tip: Chung in five

Federer vs. Berdych

Tournament favourite Roger Federer returns to the court tonight with a tricky quarter final opponent in Tomas Berdych. The Czech holds the rare distinction of beating Federer on six occasions, however, the Fed Express has been victorious over his rival an impressive 19 times and hasn’t lost to the former Wimbledon finalist since 2013. In that respect, Federer enters the match as the outright favourite with Berdych at $5. In terms of reaching this point of the tournament, Federer is yet to drop a set whilst Berdych lost a set in each of his opening two matches. Although we’re tipping the reigning champion here, if Berdych can lift his first serve percentage, he does possess the game to potentially trouble Federer.

 

Key Stat: In their last seven meetings (which includes two matches at the Australian Open), Roger Federer has only given away one set to his Czech opponent.

 

Our tip: Federer in three with the match to feature a tiebreak.
