Daniel Medvedev (4, Russia) - Andrei Rublev (7, Russia), 6:00 Israel time



One Russian, Aslan Kratzev, has already advanced to the semifinals in Melbourne and is now waiting to see who will be the second to go out with the ticket to the Big Four after the big derby between the top two .

Daniel Medvedev, ranked fourth in the world who has already reached the final of the United States Championship and won the final round of the round, is of course the favorite to win as he also holds a 0: 3 balance against his compatriot (0: 4 with consideration also in qualifiers).

The last meeting between the two was in the quarterfinals of the United States Championship so Medvedev won three sets.

In fact, Rublev - who has not yet dropped a match in the tournament and looks excellent - has never taken a match against Medvedev in the round.

Speaking about the success of the Russians in the tournament was former player Yevgeny Kaplanikov, who said: "I wish one of these guys would pass my achievements in terms of titles and weeks in first place in the world."

Will he succeed in defeating Nadal for the second time in his career?

Rafael Nadal (2, Spain) - Stefanos Cicifas (5, Greece), 10:30 The



Spaniard, who has not won the Australian Championship since 2009, really wants to do it again and lift his 21st Grand Slam title.

So far Nadal has looked great in the tournament and has yet to drop a battle, but it is clear that now he faces a challenge on a completely different scale from anything he has encountered so far in the tournament.

Nadal will play against Greek side Stefanos Tsitsipas, who arrives after a long rest as he did not play in the quarter-finals after Matteo Bertini retired.

Tsitsipas, who reached the semi-finals in Melbourne two years ago and lost there to Landal, has beaten him only once so far in seven meetings and lost to him in the last three meetings, including twice in the final round of the round.

Nadal, who suffered a back injury before the tournament, said of the change: "Things change quickly in sports. Sometimes you feel that way and then you win two games or something and feel the best in the world."

Enjoy the more convenient side of the lottery.

Ashley Barty (1, Australia) - Carolina Mohova (25, Czech Republic), 2:00 The



Australian tennis player has not played since the outbreak of the Corona until the Australian Championships, but due to the special rules did not lose first place and luckily was also drawn for the more comfortable semi-draw.

Now Ashley Barty will try to get the best out of the situation and overtake Czech Carolina Mohova, in what will be the second meeting between the two and the first since the third round of the 2018 United States Championship, then Barty won 3: 6, 4: 6.

Will Barty become the first Australian woman to win the tournament since Chris O'Neill in 1978?

Meets good company.

Jennifer Brady (22, USA) - Jessica Pegola (USA), 4:00 An



intriguing American derby between two good friends and actresses who have pretty much gone under the radar so far.

25-year-old Jennifer Brady experienced her big break last year when she reached the semifinals of the United States Championships while playing excellent tennis, while 26-year-old Pegola is recording her break in the Grand Slam tournament right now and has already moved up to senior rankings like Victoria Azarenka and Alina Svitolina.

The two met last year for the first time in a round and Pegola won 6: 7 (5), 4: 6 in the New York tournament that served as a prelude to the United States Championship.
