Medvedev motors past Kecmanovic 6-2 6-4 6-2, maybe the #2 isn’t as bad on clay as he claims...

Rublev beats Garin 6-4 3-6 6-2 7-6

Jannik Sinner beats Mckenzie McDonald 6-3 7-6 6-3.

That’s a very good win by Medvedev, Kecmanovic has been having a very good year. I thought that could be a potential banana skin but clearly Medvedev has upped his clay game.

Fairly bad news for the rest of the draw, in that Swiatek was probably not at her best today but still won in straight sets.

And rather than having to play a Frenchwoman (Cornet) who the crowd could get behind, Iga will now face a Chinese ranked 74.

Sabalenka, miles over ranked IMHO, has been ousted by feisty Giorgi. Gilles Simon, in his last RG, was demolished by Cilic who no comes up against Medvedev in what could be a very interesting clash. Rublev v Sinner is another intriguing match-up.

Rune looks like another young guy to keep tabs on.

I'm expecting Schwartzman to give Djoko a reasonable match before...losing.

FAA may make it a bit closer than that against Rafa before....losing. Alcaraz faces a tough test today but you feel if he was going to lose early-ish it would have been against RV.

Djokovic hammers Schwartzman 6-1 6-3 6-3 to complete his half of the deal to setup potential 1/4 final against Nadal.
Djokovic made merry against ‘“El Peque’s” 1st serve, the Argentine just couldn’t defend his serve.

Nadal wins 3-6 6-3 6-2 3-6 6-3. Pretty strange match. Nadal was vintage in set 3. But BP conversion was terrible 6/22. FAA was really solid.

Maybe partying with his Real Madrid friends wasn’t the correct preparation for this match...

Djokovic will be desperate to win that one. Lose and he will most likely end up 2 GS behind Nadal.
That might work against him - wanting it too much.

Carlitos Alcaraz beats Karen Khachanov 6-1 6-4 6-4. I really thought the Russian had fair chance to upset the Spanish matador. But Alcaraz proves to be a class above.

Djokovic vs Nadal
Alcaraz vs Zverev

All bets are off on Tuesday.

This seems a little bit unfair. He went to the match but there is no evidence he was partying. He says he was in bed by 12.20. Given that the match finished at 11.33pm, and the trophy was presented at midnight, it´s likely by his account that he didn´t even stay for the trophy presentation.

On Rafa-Novak, I´ve noticed over the years that the matches go with the form.

And in this case Novak has the form given his Rome victory, Rafa´s losses at Rome and Madrid, and the last one match of each at the French Open.

In their matches, physical strength and fitness, as well as mental strength (which in some months or years is higher than others), play a significant role. And each can sense across the net where the other is at.

I expect to see Novak in the final.

Not sure why some thought Alcaraz would have much difficulty in his last two matches. His big scare came in his RV match.

The Spaniard having got this far is, IMHO, favourite against Zverev.

For once I'm not backing Rafa in an RG match and his preparation wont be helped by having a 4hr 20min match last night.

Alcaraz, quite rightly, has been complaining about getting two night matches in a row - with the potential of getting a third if Rafa's preference for daylight appearances is acceded to.

Back to today and Rune could give Tsitsipas quite a match although you have to reckon the Greek will come through.

Ruud-Hurkacz and Rublev-Sinner are much harder to call. Can 19-year-old Chinese Zheng finally end Swiatek's incredible run? Probably not, although players have been impressed with the teenager.

I think last years night session somewhat favoured Djokovic, so if they met prior to the final this year it was always going to be a day match.

Nadal doesnt want to play in the night session
Djokovic prefers night session
Alcaraz thinks it would be unfair to be scheduled again in the night session
Zverev thinks schedule is built around Alvaraz´s successful image

Now RG, deal with it.

What a magnificent performance by Rune, sizzling stroke play.

Some of these ‘next gen’ players might never win majors. We seem to have arrived at the ‘next next gen’ with Alcaraz, Rune, FAA, Sinner, Musetti.
Sascha and Tsitsipas might get bypassed.

I thought Rune would provide stiff opposition today but didn't think he would win.

These youngsters are really something. Both Rune (pronounced une or oon, apparently) and Alcaraz are only just 19 but already capable of beating the big boys.

Although Hurkacz did get a set today, I reckoned he would give Ruud more of a match than he did. Bit surprised Madison Keys was ousted. The two surviving Russians in the top half of the women's draw now meet in the quarters.

Unfortunately Zheng hurt her leg and it effectively ended her chances
