Below you’ll find our Australian Open betting tips for Day 10 in Melbourne.
Rafael Nadal takes on Dominic Thiem for a place in the semi-finals of the men’s singles on Wednesday.
Nadal was given a thorough test against Australia’s Nick Kyrgios in the last round, but came through in four sets 6-3 3-6 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (7-4).
Thiem reached the last eight at the Australian Open for the first time with a convincing 6-2 6-4 6-4 win over French 10th seed Gael Monfils.
Nadal leads the head-to-head 9-4 against Thiem, although all but one of those matches was on clay. In the one exception, the Spaniard just edged past the Austrian 0-6 6-4 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (7-5) at the US Open 2018. We see Nadal edging this again.
Stan Wawrinka meets Alexander Zverev in the men’s singles quarter-finals on Wednesday.
The 34 year-old Swiss veteran overcame many people’s tips to win the tournament, fourth seed Daniil Medvedev, 6-2 2-6 4-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-2 in the fourth round.
Zverev, who has yet to drop a set in winning four matches, beat his childhood friend, Andrey Rublev, 6-4 6-4 6-4, to reach the last eight of the Australian Open for the first time.
The fact that the 22 year-old German has had an easier route to this stage of the tournament could prove to be the difference here.
Unseeded Spaniard Garbine Muguruza meets the 30th seeded Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the quarter-finals of the women’s singles on Wednesday.
Muguruza, the former French Open and Wimbledon winner, has already dispatched two Top 10 seeds in Elina Svitolina 6-1 6-2 in the third round and Kiki Bertens 6-3 6-3 in the fourth round.
The 28 year-old Russian has also provided a couple of upsets in eliminating 2nd seed Karolina Pliskova 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-3), then beating 17th seed Angelique Kerber 6-7 (5-7) 7-6 (7-4) 6-2.
Muguruza has also won four of the five matches between the pair, with her retiring in the other and Pavlyuchenkova has never been beyond this stage of a Grand Slam.
