The Australian Open rolls on with second round play wrapping up on Wednesday.

There are a number of fascinating matchups that are set to unfold, but perhaps none are as exciting as the match of the tournament on paper thus far between Nick Kyrgios and Daniil Medvedev.

Read on to see what our analysts have to say about that match and more.

Garbine Muguruza vs. Alize Cornet

7 p.m. ET projected start time

Muguruza was pushed in the first round of the tournament, and David Gertler believes she could be in for another big test in the form of Alize Cornet.

He explains why the Frenchwoman presents a tough task.

Daniil Medvedev vs. Nick Kyrgios

3 a.m. ET projected start time

The matchup of all matchups is taking place in the second round, and Kenny Ducey gives his thoughts on the contest.

He’s not so sure that Medvedev will be able to run away with this one in quick fashion.

Aryna Sabalenka vs. Xinyu Wang

8:15 p.m. ET projected start time

Will Sabalenka be able to move on from the serving yips that have plagued her start to the season? Gertler isn’t so sure, and he sees value in Wang because of it.

Gertler will be fading Sabalenka until she establishes that these woes are a thing of the past.

Dan Evans vs. Arthur Rinderknech

8:15 p.m. ET

Think this match is going to be straightforward? Think again, says Ducey, who is using a unique wager to take a position on this match.

Ducey sees a good battle incoming, and he’s betting with that perspective in mind.
