Round four play at the Australian Open continues on Saturday night, and our tennis analysts have found some spots that are worth looking at.
Matches including world number one Ashleigh Barty and Alexander Zverev are included, as well as another look at the hammer, Matteo Berrettini.
11 p.m. ET projected start time
Shapovalov has won two of the last three against Zverev, but Zimmerman sees that trend coming to an end in strong fashion.
He believes that the baseline game and pressure that Zverev will apply on the young Canadian will be too much for him to withstand.
3 a.m. ET projected start time
Does the American have a chance to pull off another giant-killing performance? Possibly, says Gertler, and she’ll certainly push the world number one.
With the help of new coach Darren Cahill, Anisimova has the potential to beat anyone in the world, and Gertler believes she’ll have another strong performance.
2:30 a.m. ET projected start time
Looking for a shot at a near four-to-one upset? Ducey has you covered, and he’s fading the Frenchman in favor of the upstart Serbian who has found a new level at the Australian Open.
Ducey is looking for Kecmanovic to push Monfils, who may or may not be carrying an injury into the match.
4:15 a.m. ET projected start time
The Italian picked up a massive win against the rising Carlos Alcaraz, but can he get the job done against another solid Spaniard?
Ducey believes so, and he’s backing Berrettini to dominate against a player that has struggled on serve throughout the tournament.
