The hypothetical semifinal would measure Medvedev. In the fourth round Kyrgios appears
Nadal already knows the way to fight again for the title at the Australian Open. The world number one will debut next week against Bolivian Hugo Dellien, number 74 in the world and who during his junior stage came to occupy the world number two, but then has not confirmed expectations. The main threat during the first week for Rafa is Carreño, who would appear in the third round. The draw also led to Nick Kyrgios crossing a hypothetical fourth round with the Spaniard.
With Djokovic and Federer on the other side of the picture Rafa has fallen on his side the Austrian Dominik Thiem for a possible quarterfinals. The semifinal would be a reissue of the last final of the United States Open, Nadal-Medvedev. The Russian would be measured in quarters with Zverev. Djokovic, Federer, Tsitsipas and Berrettini march on the other side of the painting. The hypothetical semifinal on that side of the table would be a Djokovic Federer.
