Day 9 at Melbourne Park and that may solely imply one factor: quarter-finals! 4 of them to be precise, two within the girls’s singles and two on the lads’s aspect.
First up, Naomi Osaka, the third seed, will get one other probability to show her title credentials. However it gained’t be plain crusing into the final 4 – evergreen dangerwoman Hsieh Su-wei lies in wait first up on Rod Laver.
To comply with, it’s males’s 18th seed Grigor Dimitrov towards Aslan Karatsev, earlier than arguably the largest matchup of this Open to this point that includes Serena Williams and Simona Halep. And if that isn’t sufficient, males’s No 1 Novak Djokovic stares down sixth seed Alex Zverev within the closing match of the day on centre.
