The Australian Open enters the sixth day with Novak Djokovic showcasing his exceptional talent for a hopeful advancement to the last 16. So are Aryna Sabalenka and Coco Gauff. All the big names are chasing the title, while others taste a bit of the action as underdogs.
Novak will go on the tennis court against Tomas Martin Etcheverry. He is fresh from a win versus Alexei Popyrin. The game nearly turned out to be fatal for his run. Popyrin played his best in the second game to hand over a 6-4 defeat to the winner of 24 Grand Slams in the Singles Category.
Djokovic made it a point to come back with a 7-6. He continued the advantage of the beginning when he bagged 6-3 and later concluded the game by 6-3 to perfectly mirror the opening of the game. As fans eagerly await Novak’s next match, online tennis betting sites are buzzing with speculation and excitement surrounding the outcome.
Sabalenka has had some sweet wins in the recent past. This includes a 6-0 victory over Tsurenko. That is not a standalone incident, considering Fruhvirtova and Seidel have each been beaten without a single win during the total time window of the contest. Anisimova is expected to break the streak, cementing her chances of advancing instead of being everyone’s favorite.
The Brisbane International was brutal to her. Losing to Rybakina in the final lap still hits her mind. The final tally was 6-0 and 6-3, demonstrating that the attempt to bring the balance down went down the drain. There are no questions about her potential; however, losing the final is likely to get her nervous in moments when the game can go either way.
Gauff is waiting for her opponent to reveal herself in the Australian Open. Throughout the competition, her tennis has been on edge. While she, too, has tasted sweet triumph in the past, her run is likely to be snapped by someone in the coming games. The last two wins over Parks were 6-0 and 6-2, with her winning 12 games to the opponent’s two. However, the dominance has been palpable.
Stefanos Tsitsipas, the Greek tennis player, will play in the fourth round against Fritz. A game to watch out for as Tsitsipas remains confident, accumulated from previous games of the Australian Open. His journey in the Paris Masters ended in the semi-final when Dimitrov presented a better hand on the Center Court. The fight came up in the second set when Stefanos bagged 7-6 on the scoreboard. Other sets were favorable for Dimitrov, with 6-3 and 7-6.
Jannik Sinner was also at the Paris Masters. His presence was restricted to the Round of 16 when Alex de Minaur and the game were sent away with a walkover. The 22-year-old Italian champion is looking to leave an impression on the tennis court this time at the Australian Open.
A couple of games are underway in the Australian Open. Andreeva and Parry are leaving no stone unturned in the Women’s Single Category. Parry has registered 6-1, 1-6, so far, and is at 6-6 in the decider.
