Based on what? Last time Nadal beat Zverev on a hard court was 2017 and Zverev has improved tremendously since then.

In my opinion, Zverev will smack Nadal and may cause some trouble for Medvedev.

Based on the fact Zverev doesn’t win big games, Nadal in 3 or 4.

Sakkari & Tsitsipas are pretty much the only Greeks in top events.

The Special K's are Australians. May as well call Kyrgios Malaysian if you're gonna call him Greek.
As someone with a Greek background I joke with my Malaysian friend that he can claim Kyrgios after his usual antics. Lol

So conflicted in who i want to win here.

Osaka v Barty is a match we have been waiting for in a grand slam for 2-3 years. but, on the other hand, you can't not cheer for Anisimova and all she had to go through in recent years.

No matter how many times I watch it, a 3rd set/5th set super tiebreak never feels right. It's a sh*t way to finish a classic.

That is the real reason why Tiley should be sacked, for introducing it to the Aus open.
He’s so s**t at everything. Why copy the US open. Dickhead.

Shame we won't see a Barty/Osaka match but - with Killer Cahill in her corner - Anisimova might be a danger for Ash.

Naomi now down to about #80 in world rankings and won't be seeded in upcoming tournies.

Anisimova has just put her name in the headlights. That was a sensational match as both players played at an incredibly high quality throughout.

She broke on to the scene young, had some very tough battles after losing her father, took some time to find her game again, but gees if she plays like this consistently she can win a slam.

Darren Cahill hey, master coach.

Anisimova has made a French Semi Guys. This is not new for her. This is a return; a comeback. Not a breakthrough. She beat Halep in that tournament, who was defending champ.

In that semi, she played Barty. It was a close-run thing.

I Cant wait til Sunday Night.
