We’re into the Round of 16 at the 2018 Australian Open. Very few of the top-seeded players from the men’s and women’s singles brackets have been eliminated at this point, four rounds into the year’s first Grand Slam.
Rafael Nadal, the top seed and last year’s runner-up, will have his toughest test of the tournament on Saturday against the 24th seed, Diego Schwartzman. The Australian Open remains the only Grand Slam that Nadal has only won once before. The man who beat him in 2017, Roger Federer, has been playing well thus far.
Also for the men, No. 3 seed Grigor Dimitrov continues his quest for a Grand Slam win, and he’s got to take out local favorite Nick Kyrgios, the 17th seed. Marin Cilic, the sixth seed, has the toughest out among the top seeds, as he will play Pablo Carreno Busta, the 10th seed.
Or perhaps it’s Busta who has the toughest out.
On the women’s side, the second seed, Caroline Wozniacki, has looked great and will face No. 19 Magdalena Rybarikova. Elina Svitolina, the popular pick to win it all, will face the unseeded Denisa Allertova. Her top competition is Simona Halep, who narrowly survived a three-set marathon against Lauren Davis on Friday. Halep is the top seed but looked utterly exhausted after her win over Davis.
