Rafael Nadal was tested for the first time in the tournament. Karen Khachanov pushed Nadal to four sets in their third-round showdown on Friday night before bowing out.

Nadal has the 2-0 head-to-head edge over Mannarino, beating the Frenchman twice in hard courts and without dropping a set.

Arguably, this is the toughest matchup of the R16 to predict. Alexander Zverev comes into the fourth round without dropping a set. He’s the second-best bet after Daniil Medvedev to win the Australian Open, and so far, he hasn’t put a foot wrong. Denis Shapovalov’s path to the last 16 hasn’t been as straightforward, but the Canadian looms as a potential stumbling block for the German. Lifetime, Zverev has the 4-2 head-to-head edge.  

The pair recently met at the ATP Cup with Zverev edging Shapovalov in three sets, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-6(4). Zverev’s win avenges his loss to Shapovalov at the 2020 ATP Cup, which the Canadian won handily, 6-2, 6-2. By the tennis odds, the market for this game is skewed towards Zverev as the -450 favorite, but Shapovalov is a tempting underdog at +333. A five-set marathon irrespective of the winner is priced at +333 as well.

Matteo Berrettini vs Pablo Carreno Busta

Matteo Berrettini survived a scare in the third round as rising star Carlos Alcaraz took the Italian to five sets. Alcaraz threw the kitchen sink at Berrettini and stormed back from two sets down to force the match into a fifth set. The pair were neck-and-neck in the decider until Berrettini’s experience carried him through a fifth-set tiebreaker to clinch the win, Next up for Berrettini is another Spaniard. Pablo Carreno Busta defeated another young gun, Sebastian Korda, in the third round. Korda took a set off Carreno Busta, but the Spaniard persevered in four sets. 

Books favor Berrettini to come through this match, but after the emotional rollercoaster of the third round, there’s the potential of a let-down performance. Surprisingly, this is the first-ever meeting between the pair, meaning it’s a bit of a tossup for tennis picks.
