Australian Open quarter-final: Andrey Rublev vs. Novak Djokovic – live | Australian Open 2023


Key events

Here’s Tumaini Carayol in Wednesday’s women’s draw quarter-final, where Magda Linette continued her unexpected run:

The winner here today will face Tommy Paul in the semi-finals, having emerged victorious from the previous American battle with Ben Shelton, winning 7-6 (8-6), 6-3, 5-7, 6-4. The 25-year-old reached the fourth round at Wimbledon last year but it was by far his best performance at a Grand Slam.

Preamble

Andrey Rublev is only seeded one place below Novak Djokovic, but that rather understates the scale of his task today. The Russian is 0-6 in Grand Slam quarter-finals, losing five of those matches in straight sets. He has the full game to go further, but it will be difficult to overcome that hurdle today against a man who is chasing history.

Djokovic is one win away from matching Andre Agassi’s 26-game winning streak in Melbourne, and the favorite to clinch a barely believable 10th Australian Open this week. He’s taken a while to step up a gear this year, held back by a hamstring injury early on, but after dispatching Alex De Minaur in ruthless fashion, he’s undoubtedly the man to beat.

The game starts shortly, so make yourself comfortable and follow here – and you can contact me via email or on Twitter.
