Australian Open Men’s Draw Analysis – Federer’s Quarter

Federer’s Quarter

Favorite: Federer (51%)

Contender: Berdych (16%)

Dark Horse: Kyrgios (7%)

1st Round Upset Alert: Leonardo Mayer over #19 Dominic Thiem.  Mayer is has an ATP ranking of 35 and has made it out of the first round  7 out of his last 8 Grand Slam events.  His only loss in the first round was to Federer in the 2015 US Open.

Prediction: Federer is the clear favorite in this quarter and should see little problem to the quarterfinals.  However, Federer has been susceptible to hot players and Berdych could certainly provide the hardest test.
