Andy Murray was defeated in 5 sets by Bautista Agut in his last Australian Open. Murray has won infinitely more Olympic Golds than Roger Federer (2-0). I hope Murray can win at least one match in Wimbledon..
Fabio Fognini at -223 for 4 units. Jaume Munar plays solid tennis, but Fognini made it to the round of 16 here last year and will want to do at least that this year. Munar won two matches in Grand Slams last year, but he is not on the same level of Fognini. Fabio can be inconsistent, but a major title should be enough to get even his attention. Fabio is one of the best tennis players in the World on his day. I enjoy watching his volatility.
Daniil Medvedev -6 at -170 for 4 units. The young South African, Lloyd George Harris doesn’t have much of a chance here. Medvedev beat Murray, Raonic, and Tsonga last week. Daniil has been one of the best young players over the past 12 months and that will continue in this tournament. Medvedev is savvy, rested, and ready. Medvedev came into the AO last year on little rest, this year he took Sydney off to be ready to claim his first victory here.
Mischa Zverev at +179 for 2 units. If Zverev is fit he will win…
Borna Coric -7 at -127 for 2 units. Coric is out of form, but Steve Darcis got beat (6-1,6-2,6-0) against Pella the last time he was in a major. Coric has lost 4 first round matches in a row here, but this is his easiest opponent by far.
