The Line: -- Over/Under:
Swiss tennis master Roger Federer has made another quarterfinal at the Australian Open. Roger Federer will compete against Tennys Sandgren for a spot in the semifinals.
Tennys Sandgren has had an outstanding tournament as he has already eliminated the number 12 seed and the number 8 seed. In the previous round, Sandgren defeated Fabio Fognini in 4 sets. It was a close match for Tennys Sandgren but the American won vital points throughout the match which allowed him to secure the victory. During the win, Tennys Sandgren won 87% of his service games and 5 return games. It has been a favorable draw for Tennys Sandgren but he must produce his best match if he wishes to compete with Federer.
On the other side of the coin, Roger Federer won his previous match in 4 sets. It was a poor start to the match for Federer as he lost the opening set but the Swiss superstar was dominant in the final 3 sets which he won with some ease. During the win, Roger Federer impressed with his receiving as he won 45% of his receiving points which allowed him to break his opponent’s serve on 7 occasions. The serving was also very solid from Roger Federer as he won close to 90% of his service games. It has been a good tournament for Roger Federer as he has looked good and overcome every challenge he has faced.
This will be the first time that Roger Federer and Tennys Sandgren will be playing each other at an ATP event.
Tennys Sandgren has been very impressive but I don’t see him having enough to defeat Federer. Roger Federer is still playing at an elite level and he has shown great composure and skill. I see there is a big gap in skill between the two players so I am going to pick Roger Federer to win this match in straight sets.
