Benoit Paire vs Stefanos Tsitsipas

Click here for Paire and Tsitsipas odds

Benoit Paire trails 1-3 against Stefanos Tsitsipas, losing three straight meetings with the Greek since 2017. Worse yet, he hasn’t taken a set off Tsitsipas in those contests, and in the last two matches, he was able to win just seven games. By all accounts, Tsitsipas should advance into the fourth round comfortably.

Paire has expended a lot of energy already. He needed five sets to dispatch Thiago Monteiro in the first round and four sets to overcome Grigor Dimitrov. By contrast, Tsitsipas has dropped merely one set in two rounds. 

Botic Van De Zandschulp vs Daniil Medvedev

Daniil Medvedev is coming off a tough victory over Nick Kyrgios in the second round, a showdown that saw the Russian take on the Australian crowd as well. Kyrgios took a set off the Russian but he succumbed in four sets. Botic Van De Zandschulp had a much smoother run and advances without dropping a set. He took care of Jan-Lennard Struff, 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 in the first round. Then made light work of veteran Richard Gasquet before the Frenchman tapped out in the third sets 6-4, 6-0, 4-0

Medvedev beat Van De Zandschulp at the 2021 US Open, edging the dutchman 6-3, 6-0, 4-6, 7-5 in the quarterfinals. Van De Zandschulp enjoyed a bit of a Cinderella run to reach the last eight before his fairy-tale came to an end. With added experience, the dutchman should be more competitive early this time around, but Medvedev should win. 

Jannick Sinner vs Taro Daniel

Italian prodigy Jannick Sinner advances to the third round comfortably. He faces Japan’s Taro Daniel, who defeated Andy Murray in the second round. Daniel is a dogged competitor who will give Sinner a proper test. However, the Italian simply has more weapons at his disposal. He should overcome Daniel with relative ease. 

Andrey Rublev vs. Marin Cilic

Click Here for Rublev vs Cilic odds

This is one of the marquee matchups on the day’s card. Russia’s Andrey Rublev breezed through his first two matches, putting to bed any question marks about his fitness and lack of preparation ahead of the Aussie Open. Marin Cilic, meanwhile, has had a nice summer Down Under. He reached back-to-back semis in Adelaide and came into the Australian Open with a 4-2 record. In the first round, Cilic made short work of Emilio Gomez, conceding just six games to the Ecuadorian. He had a tougher time of it against Serbian Norbert Gombos, needing four sets to advance. 

If both Rublev and Cilic are in top form, this could be a five-set marathon that goes either way. Rublev is the fitter player of the two, and in a drawn-out battle, he is better positioned to outlast Cilic.

Marketa Vondrousova vs Aryna Sabalenka

Click here for Vondrousova vs Sabalenka odds

The No.2 seed Aryna Sabalenka is through to the third round, despite her best efforts to scupper her own progress. The sheer volume of double faults the Belarusian has had in just the first two rounds of the tournament would have undone a lesser player. Perhaps, her only fortune is in having not faced an opponent that had the wherewithal to capitalize on her faults. Czech Marketa Vondrousova is the kind of player that can take advantage of Sabalenka's woes. The pair are tied 2-2 on head-to-heads, but Vondrousova has the recent win. She beat Sabalenka in Miami 6-1, 6-2 last season. Indeed, bookies are favoring Vondrousova over her higher-ranked opponent. That’s telling. 

Simona Halep vs Darka Kovinic

Click here for Halep vs Kovinic odds

Darka Kovinic served up an upset in the second round, beating Emma Raducanu in the second round in a three-set marathon, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 – although the victory comes with a caveat. The British No.1 and 2021 US Open champion came into the Australian Open with serious fitness question marks, not to mention blisters during the match that hindered her performance in the end. Kovinic will be eager to prove her victory was merited, but she couldn’t have asked for a tougher opponent to do it against. Simona Halep has started her Australian Open campaign in blistering form. She hasn’t dropped a set in two matches, held Beatriz Haddad Maia to love in the second set, and spent as little time on court combined in two rounds. 

Iga Swiatek vs Daria Kasatkina

Click here for Swiatek vs Kasatkina odds

Russian Daria Kasatkina comes into the Australian Open on good form, and she’s carried the momentum into the third round without dropping a set. Next up is the 2020 French Open champion Iga Swiatek, a decidedly tougher opponent than her first two in the tournament. Swiatek reached the semis in Adelaide a fortnight ago (l. to A. Barty) and reaches the R32 in Melbourne without dropping a set.

Kasatkina has the 1-0 edge over Swiatek, beating the Polish star in three sets in Eastbourne last season. Swiatek’s best surface is clay, but on the faster surfaces, she can be beaten. Kasatkina has had a good summer Down Under with wins over Garbine Muguruza, Madison Keys, and Elise Mertens. She may well fancy her chances. However, if this match comes down to the wire, Swiatek might have the advantage mentally. 

Pick: Swiatek in three sets +310 (Bet $100 to win $310)
