ROD LAVER ARENA (11 a.m. start)
 Dominic Thiem (AUT) vs  David Goffin (BEL) – The winner here has a great opportunity to be in the semifinal round and take their chances for anything beyond that.
 Gael Monfils (FRA) vs  Rafael Nadal (ESP) – Rafa is a terrible match up for Gael. Nadal can likely elicit enough errors to win in 3 or 4 sets.
MARGARET COURT ARENA
 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) vs [WC] Denis Istomin (UZB) – Grigor’s Brisbane title and domination of Gasquet have him on the rise.
 Milos Raonic (CAN) vs  Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) – Milos’ serve will need to be the difference because if this turns into a match determined by rallies RBA wins.
