Rafa has been bulldozing opponents all week and while Schwartzman is better that the other players Nadal has faced, this is bad match up for the little Argentinian. Schwartzman hasn’t the game to challenge Nadal – simple as that – so expect it to be wrapped up in about 92 minutes.
Kyrgios is hard to back mainly because last time you backed him he stopped trying like a petulant man child and you promised yourself never again. However Dimitriov’s match against Rublev had a staggering 120 unforced errors, 61 of which came off the Bulgarian’s racquet.
Kyrgios on the other hand is serving unbelievably well and already has a win against the Bulgarian this year. He looked sharp, hungry and unusually focused against Tsonga. We’re backing him this time. Don’t f*ck it up Nick!
Wozniacki should win but loves to make matches more difficult that they need to be. She should already be out of the tournament, scraping by in the second round after managing to save two match points in the third set against Jana Fett.
Bizarrely, Wozzers has a chance of reclaiming the No.1 ranking she held this time six years ago – yet a Grand Slam still eludes her. Anyway, Rybarikova could even take a set here if Wozniacki isn’t at her best but expect the Dane to progress. Hopefully with less tantrums this time.
