And, like that — with Hyeon Chung’s (+300) straight set victory over Novak Djokovic — we turn the page on the first week of the 2018 Australian Open.

It’s been a wacky tournament thus far, and a tricky one to cap. Most thought this tournament would be wide open (compared to years past) — but I’m not sure anybody expected a “TennysSandgren-in-the-quarterfinals” type of wide open.

On the bright side, Grand Slams tend to play out like a tale of two different tournaments. And I expect some semblance of normalcy as we move toward the “business portion” of the tournament. Then again, as long as Tennys’ name is still floating around the field, I won’t rule anything out.

With two quarterfinal matches on the men’s side slated for tonight, let’s poke around for some value.
