Monday 15th February - Day 8
Some interesting matches coming up, it is going to be hard to match the quality of the women's matches from Day 7. Pegula might surprise, consider Brady the favourite, Nadal will most likely beat Fognini, Barty should win and Tsitsi Berrettini will be interesting. Rublev is moving through the draw with a minimum of fuss, how will Medvedev back up after the 5 setter?

Can't add anything else bar, go Mertens. She just keeps doing the business. Could be an interesting day. Could be another total flop like most even days have been.

Barty in 2 (better be can’t stand Rogers)
Muchova in 3 (toss of the coin, just feel Mertens will make too many errors)
Brady in 3 (will do enough)
Pengula in 2 (my upset)

Rublev in 3 (easily)
Mededev in 3 (easiest tip of the day)
Berretini in 4 (just a gut feeling)
Nadal in 3 (Rafa won’t lose to Fognini)

Wait what, are channel 9 really showing wheelchair tennis on the main channel and the women’s 4R match on secondary channel? Get out.

Where the heck has Pegula been? She hits so well, powerfully and with control. She’s actually great to watch.

Mertens is like the female Gasquet. Gets to the R4 / QF like every slam and then checks out like clockwork. Not sure Muchova is quite good enough but I had a play.

Brady looking great (despite the struggles to close the set) and Pegula very impressive.

Tipping Berrettini tonight in one of the only (on paper) competitive matches. Mertens the other one.
