Novak Djokovic is hoping to become the most decorated male player of all time in the Open Era, and he is the biggest name in action at the Australian Open on Monday when he faces home favourite Alex de Minaur for a place in the quarter-finals.

Novak Djokovic to beat Alex de Minaur 3-0 @ 5/4

Djokovic has an incredible record in this tournament and has won each of the last three he has participated in, with a tally of nine in total.

His last defeat came at this stage back in 2018, when South Korean player Chang Hyeon stunned the Serb to take a straight-sets victory.

This year, the 35-year-old has faced little resistance in his first three games, dropping just one set against Frenchman Enzo Couacaud, although he has overcome one or two injury niggles along the way.

He faces De Minaur who is Australia’s leading hope following Nick Kyrgios’ withdrawal through injury.

The 23-year-old has matched his best run in his home Slam of last year, reaching the fourth round, but Djokovic will have far too much experience and ability on the day.

Andrey Rublev to beat Holger Rune @ EVS

The number five and number nine seeds face off in Melbourne with both players seeking their maiden major wins.

Rublev is a perennial quarter-finalist in the Grand Slam events, having achieved six of them in his career, including one in Melbourne in 2021.

The Russian has overcome some quality players in his three rounds so far with former US Open winner Dominic Thiem and British number two Dan Evans among his scalps.

Rune has yet to drop a set in reaching this stage and the 19-year-old has enjoyed a real rise up the ladder in the past year.

However, Rublev knows how to win games in the Grand Slam events and might prove too strong.

Caroline Garcia to beat Magda Linette 2-0 @ 5/6

Number four seed Garcia has had a wonderful 12 months, winning four tournaments and has risen up the rankings.

She beat Aryna Sabalenka on the way to winning the WTA Finals back in November and is one of the players to watch, particularly now that Iga Swiatek and Ons Jabeur have been knocked out.

Her next opponent in the unseeded Pole Magda Linette, who is having her best run in a major, having beaten Anett Kontaveit and Ekaterina Alexandrova to get to round four.

Garcia’s form suggests it will be a step too far and she will certainly have ambitions of winning outright.

Aryna Sabalenka to beat Belinda Bencic 2-1 @ 3/1

Sabalenka has started to stamp her authority on the women’s game, having reached the semi-finals of both Wimbledon and the US Open last season, before she finished as runner-up at the WTA Tour Finals.

The 24-year-old made a strong start to 2023 by winning the Adelaide International 1 as a perfect preparation for the first major, and she has carried that form through to Melbourne.

The Belarusian has come through her opening three matches easily, although Bencic will be her toughest examination so far, with the Swiss player also having not dropped a set.

However, aside from one semi-final appearance at the US Open, she has never advanced beyond round four in a major and Sabalenka’s form means she should get through in what could be a gruelling encounter.
