Australian Open 2021: February 9th Men’s Singles Predictions

Rod Laver Arena  

[2] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. Laslo Djere (SRB) – Rafa rolls
[5] Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE) vs. Gilles Simon (FRA) – This is a nightmare first round draw. Simon makes people play badly and hangs around. Still, Stefanos should win this match in 2021.

Margaret Court Arena

[4] Daniil Medvedev (RUS) vs. Vasek Pospisil (CAN) – Daniil will need to be ready to return well, but his amoeba tennis should prevail.
