Djokovic v Fritz, Sinner v Rublev, Gauff And Sabalenka At Australian Open
It’s a huge day of quarterfinal matches at the Australian Open with both US Open champions — Novak Djokovic and Coco Gauff — center stage on Rod Laver.
Gauff opens the day against 21-year-old Marta Kostyuk who arrives into her first Major quarterfinal. Gauff has won her last 11 matches in Slams and is a perfect 9-0 this season after winning Auckland.
Djokovic will try to reach his 48th career Grand Slam semifinal and improve to 9-0 against Taylor Fritz. The American No. 1 has never been past a Slam quarterfinal losing to Djokovic at the US Open in this round last year.
Djokovic has won his last 32 matches in Melbourne and has held serve 37 straight times.
In the evening, Aryna Sabalenka hopes to stay perfect in Slam quarterfinals against Barbora Krejcikova in an all-Top 10 seeded affair. Sabalenka has won all seven of her previous quarterfinal matches in Slams.
In the nightcap, Andrey Rublev will try to break a duck against Jannik Sinner. Rublev is 0-9 in Slam quarterfinals. Sinner hasn’t yet to drop a set this event.
