Odds:

Tsitsipa N/A v 80.00 Gilles Simon

Australian Open seeds after the 1st round (assuming Tsitsipas wins) Men’s: 26-6 Women’s: 24-8

Kyrgios 1.84 v 2.16 Humbert tomorrow

Never seen Humbert play before but surely Kyrgios with the home crowd here, 1.84 is too big?

Do not underestimate the home ground advantage for the Australian players

early odds for Kyrgios v Thiem is $5.00 for Nick and $1.21 for Thiem.

I think its fair to say after last nights performance, even Kyrgios at his best probably won’t beat him. I felt the crowd got him up last night.

Quote from Djokovic today

"“It’s like ice [a reference to the speedy surface] out there. I don’t know what they’ve done but the speed of the court is the fastest I’ve ever experienced in 15 years at the Australian Open. I don’t know what the reason is for that. It keeps getting faster and faster. You need to serve well. If you don’t and play against someone solid, it’s tough to win matches on this court.”

Surface seems to be playing a tad faster this year, which suits his game style a tad less. Novak likes to grind points with rallies and wear the players out as much as possible.

Collins v Pliskova

Last week they played it was a 7-6 7-6 . It was a mainly serve dominated match.

Set 1 Collins Points Won 30-32
Set 1 Pliskova Points Won 30.5-32.5

This game has all the trademarks of a long tight battle with a few twists and turns for me.

You just have to love WTA, its full of breaks

1st set Pliskova with the 6-5 lead over Collins

Pliskova 1.59 v 2.66 Collins

Pliskova takes the 1st set

Its Pliskova 1.26 v 4.70 Collins

One thing I have noticed about todays crowd For Kokkinakis in comparison to the Kyrgios match last night, is the crowd last night was a lot more rowdier. They were cheering double faults, errors of Kyrgios’ opponent. Todays crowd definitely feels a lot more sedate.
