The following players are through to the Quarterfinals to be played tomorrow:-
Upper half of the Draw
* D Goffin (11) vs D Evans
* S Tsitsipas (4) vs A Davdovic Fokina WC
Davidovich Fokina is a 21 year-old and relatively new to tennis on this level -very promising youngster and a player to watch out for in future, I do not think he can beat Tsitsipas in the quarterfinal though,.
Sverev was poor in the Round 3 match and deservedly lost as a result. If Rublev gets to the semi he would overtake Sverev and become the no 5 ranked player in the world.
As bad as Sverev play - so bad was Djokovic . I warned yesterday that he was not really up to standard and today's performance proves it, The bookmakers rated Evans as a 10/1 outsider - wonder whether there was anybody putting money on Evans winning? What is evident it will put a big dent in his ranking as world number 1,
I do not think that it is possible to determine the winner of the Goffin-Evans match, even though Goffin is slightly shorter odds than Evans,
Lower Half of the Draw
* R Nadal (3) vs A Rublev (6)
* F Fognini (15) vs C Ruud
There are only 3 of the Top 10 seeded players left and Nadal and Ridlev face each other. Nadal was outstanding today and beat Dimitrov with ease, while Rublev had a three set battle to pull off a win against Bautista-Agut, so Nadal is heavily favoured to beat Rublev.
Ruud proved me wrong so many times I am not forcasting a winner in the match against Fognini,
