Australian Open 2021: Day 4 Men’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Rod Laver Arena (11 a.m. start)

[5] Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE) vs. [WC] Thanasi Kokkinakis (AUS) – I like Tsitsipas to win, but I expect a rowdy crowd as well.
[2] Rafael Nadal (ESP) vs. [Q] Michael Mmoh (USA) Rafa should win, but super fast courts do not bode super well for him overall.

Margaret Court Arena

[9] Matteo Berrettini (ITA) vs. [Q] Tomas Machac (CZE)
[21] Alex de Minaur (AUS) vs. Pablo Cuevas (URU) – This could be a close one.

John Cain Arena (Noon start)

[7] Andrey Rublev (RUS) vs. Thiago Monteiro (BRA)
[16] Fabio Fognini (ITA) vs. Salvatore Caruso (ITA) – Fabio should like the court speed as he is a shotmaker.
[4] Daniil Medvedev (RUS) vs. Roberto Carballes Baema (ESP) – I like Medvedev to go far.

1573 Arena

[19] Karen Khachanov (RUS) vs. Ricardas Berankis (LTU) – possible upset here

Court 3

[WC] Alexei Popyrin (AUS) vs. Lloyd Harris (RSA)
Radu Albot (MDA) vs. [WC] Christopher O’Connell (AUS) – Only one wildcard survives on Court 3.

Court 7

[31] Lorenzo Sonego (ITA) vs. Feliciano Lopez (ESP)
[28] Filip Krajinovic (SRB) vs. Pablo Andujar (ESP)

Court 8

[22] Borna Coric (CRO) vs. Mackenzie McDonald (USA)
Cameron Norrie (GBR) vs. [LL] Roman Safiullin (RUS)

Court 13

[24] Casper Ruud (NOR) vs. Tommy Paul

Court 17

Carlos Alcaraz (ESP) vs. Mikael Ymer (SWE) – I normally put a lot of trust in the Spanish Armada, but Ymer may be on a hot streak here.
