Stefanos Tsitsipas to beat Jiri Lehecka 3-1 @ 12/5
Third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas needed five sets to reach the last eight when he edged out Italian Jannik Sinner on Rod Laver Arena.
The Greek ace raced into a 2-0 lead but he struggled to get the job done, with Sinner forcing the match into a decider. Tsitsipas was roared on by a passionate Australian crowd, and he has now reached his third consecutive quarter-final in Melbourne.
Before his narrow win over Sinner, Tsitsipas had not dropped a set throughout the tournament, and he will be up against it when he takes on Lehecka.
Lehecka had never won a Grand Slam match before he arrived in Melbourne, but he overcame sixth seed Felix Auger-Aliassime on Sunday.
Tsitsipas is likely to try and force the tempo and put his rival under pressure, and the lack of experience at the highest level should eventually get to Lehecka.
Sebastian Korda to beat Karen Khachanov @ 8/11
Sebastian Korda’s magical experience in Melbourne is still going strong after he beat 10th seed Hubert Hurkacz over the weekend.
Korda was responsible for Daniil Medvedev’s early exit as well, and he is full of confidence ahead of Tuesday’s matchup.
Neither Korda nor Karen Khachanov have ever played in the semi-finals of the Australian Open, but that is what awaits the winner of Tuesday’s contest.
Khachanov’s first serve and forehand power will play a big part in Tuesday’s tie, but Korda has shown more versatility in the last two weeks.
Korda has shown he can handle the pressure in Melbourne and his recent form suggests he can find a way to reach the last four.
Jelena Ostapenko to beat Elena Rybakina @ 7/4
Jelena Ostapenko has overcome every hurdle so far, but she will need to produce her very best to beat Elena Rybakina as she tries to reach the final four of the Australian Open for the first time.
Rybakina’s victory over Iga Swiatek sent shockwaves through the women’s draw, and with the No.1 seed now out, the title is there for the taking.
Thankfully for Ostapenko, she knows how to get past Rybakina and leads her rival 2-0 in head-to-head matchups.
Latvian Ostapenko proved she has plenty of strings to her bow during her win over Coco Gauff, and her recent form is enough evidence to suggest she can progress in Melbourne.
Jessica Pegula to beat Victoria Azarenka @ 4/11
American Jessica Pegula will look to make the final four of the Aussie Open for the first time this week when she faces two-time champion Victoria Azarenka.
Pegula’s seeding of third suggests she has the better chance of victory, and the 28-year-old is certainly in a rich vein of form.
She has now won fight matches in a row in all competitions, and while Azarenka knows how to win in Melbourne, she last won the title in 2013.
Pegula is known for her error-free play, and she will likely chip away at Azarenka before securing her spot in the final four.
