German Olympic Champion Zverev and Polish Star Swiatek Hit the Australian Open Courts

On the 7th day of the Australian Open tournament, Germany’s last hope is in action.

Olympic champion Alexander Zverev picks up his racket and is against the world number 91. Alex Michelsen is the clear favorite.

Zverev will play the last match in the Rod Laver Arena in the night session. Before that, Iga Swiatek is aiming for the round of 16 there. The Pole wants to break her personal Melbourne record this season (semi-finals in 2022).

The stars also give each other a helping hand. Carlos Alcaraz, Daniil Medvedev and Casper Ruud hit Down Under and fight for a place in the second week of the tournament.

Saturday’s schedule at the Australian Open:

Betting Tips:

Cameron Norrie (GBR/19) – Casper Ruud (NOR/11)

A tricky task awaits Casper Ruud in the third round of the Australian Open. The Norwegian will face Briton Cameron Norrie. Ruud’s form curve has been fluctuating recently. However, the direct duel clearly speaks in favor of the 25-year-old, who has won the previous three clashes. Norrie also recently had to give up in Auckland. There is a question mark behind the fitness of the number 19 seed. Betting tip: Casper Ruud

Jelena Ostapenko (YEARS/11) – Victoria Azarenka (-/18)

Melbourne is the tournament par excellence for Azarenka. The Belarusian won the tournament in 2012 and 2013. This year, as number 18 on the seeding list, the 34-year-old is “only” in the extended circle of favorites. The opponent in round three is Jelena Ostapenko. The 2017 French Open winner proved by reaching the quarterfinals last year that she also deserves attention on hard courts. It should be a close match. Betting tip: Victoria Azaren

Felix Auger-Aliassime (CAN/27) – Daniel Medvedev (-/3)

Daniil Medvedev is likely to still feel the effects of his second round match against Emil Ruusuvuori, where the world number three was on the court until almost four in the morning and had foot problems. His opponent Félix Auger-Aliassime looks back on a disappointing second half of 2023. 2024 didn’t start well for the Canadian either with an early exit against Daniel Altmaier in Auckland. The surprise against the ailing Medvedev is still in the air. Betting tip: Félix Auger-Aliassime

Ugo Humbert (FRA/21) – Hubert Hurkacz (POL/9)

Ugo Humbert and Hubert Hurkacz are facing each other for the third time. The previous two games went to the Poles. In the last meeting so far in autumn 2023 it was very close in Basel, Hubert only had to admit defeat in the tiebreak of the third set. Hurkacz started the season with some convincing performances in the United Cup, while Humbert had to retire early in the Brisbane match. Betting tip: Ugo Humbert
