Aussie Day. Take a shot each time Ch.9 mention that and Barty together. You won't last till Ash's match. Fed is last at night ahead of Nole so let the complaints roll in for that. I am just going to say that no other man has had an RLA match yet on this side. Hogs. No more night sessions outside RLA and a bit of a disappointing MCA schedule I feel, outside of one match. Think the AO is trying to fit as many people as possible on ground passes due to the long weekend with Gauff on Melb.

Barty will now hog the night session til she loses or semis. She lost in the doubles today so there is nothing to prevent her. guess the interest in the mens will be the Cilic match. The Foginini and Tennys at Wimbledon had Foginini wanting to bomb the place, so yeah..... Gauff will be popular tomorrow for the plebs' ticket. One quarter in the girls is slightly stronger than the other.

Match of the Night - Barty v Riske
A rematch of Wimbledon at the same stage, where Riske shocked Barty in 3. Riske is a very good grass player and hits the ball flat. Shame it is a hard court. Will be interesting to see how Barty will adapt during the match. Barty in 3 for me.

Other predictions/guesswork

Sandgren in 5
Federer in 3
Raonic in 5
Djokovic in 3

Kvitova in 3
Kenin in 2
Jabeur in 3

Shame millman didn’t win, would’ve been great on Australia Day but there’s an Aussie (Fed) playing anyway... right?

This side of the draw has become lacklustre.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow's matches
only seeds remain in mens top half of draw, so yes this side of the mens draw looks exciting. tsitsipas and bautista losing in the 3rd round, and dimitrov and shapovalov losing earlier in the tournament has depleted the bottom half considerably now.

womens matches - anything can happen in these IMO.

Honestly apart from interest in Barty today is a bit of a bland day of tennis for me.
I tend to agree, I think there is some interest in Gauff. I am surprised she is not on RLA or MCA.

Is MCA set seats today or is it general admission? I can't remember when it transitions.

Polmans rocking the legionnaires hat. Giving Ben Dunk, in his wide brim hat tied under his chin, a run as the dorkiest look in Australian sport.
