Hall of Fame
One of the most anticipated matched of the tournament will feature the old master and the young apprentice in what could possibly be a passing of the torch. First time that they'll play on the tour, but they played in Hopman Cup this year with Federer winning 76 76. Schedule TBA, possibly will go night session.


Fed in 3 or 4.

After his match against Fritz, I can’t see how Tsitsipas will get anywhere close to winning
I couldn't see any sustained brilliance tbh. Occasional flashes from FH wing - that's all. His timing of shots is quite off today, Also moved slow like 2018 end.

This Fed will lose to first he meets with decent ground game.


Bionic Poster
I think he played better in Hopman cup and first round here. After that regressed.
the only match he played better in the Hopman cup was the Zverev match.
He's doing fine here at the AO.
Also 1st round from Fed here was the worst relatively among his 3 matches here.

Will have to raise his form vs a Nadal or Djokovic playing well.
This level/style would be just enough vs a zoning Cilic/Khach as well I think.


Tsitsi played some great tennis against Basi. This is where Federer loses his first set IMO.
Hope I am wrong. Fraud needs a full tank for every match in his senior years.
