Talented Hyeon Chung to put pressure on Zverev

Benneteau and Barty may not have it easy

Hyeon Chung beat Daniil Medvedev in straight sets
1 of 1

Day six
Eurosport 1 & 2, 8am & midnight Friday

Chung v Zverev

Alexander Zverev is an exciting prospect but he is yet to show his best form at Grand Slam level and could be put through his paces by the talented Hyeon Chung.

For all his success, the 20-year-old is yet to go beyond the fourth round at a Grand Slam and he must prove that he has the mental strength to cope with the pressure surrounding the biggest stage.

Zverev is by far the likeliest winner but he made hard work of defeating compatriot Peter Gojowczyk in the previous round and any slip-ups may be punished by a confident Chung, who won their only previous meeting on the Barcelona clay in May last year.

The occasion may also get to Chung - who is just a year older than Zverev - but he eased past Daniil Medvedev in straight sets in round two and is improving fast.

Chung has lost only two of his last 12 hard-court matches and has the all-round game to overhaul the German, who can expect his toughest test yet.

Punters should take Chung to keep the contest close but also place some faith in the classy Korean to cause an upset.

Recommendations
H Chung +4.5 games
2pts 8-13 Coral
H Chung 
1pt 13-8 general 


Benneteau v Fognini

French veteran Julien Benneteau surprised seventh seed David Goffin in the last round but he could struggle to repeat the feat against an in-form Fabio Fognini.

Fognini can be frustrating to follow as he doesn't always deliver but he looked good in seeing off Evgeny Donskoy in the last round and has the ability to make light work of his 36-year-old opponent.

The Frenchman has came through two gruelling matches - he has been on court two hours longer than Fognini - and his ageing legs could struggle to cope with the quick turnaround.

Benneteau has never gone beyond the third round in Melbourne in 12 attempts and it's tough to see his dismal record improving now.

Recommendation
F Fognini -1.5 sets 
1pt 8-13 Paddy Power


Barty v Osaka

Home hope Ashleigh Barty has come from a set down to win both of her matches at this year’s Australian Open and a similarly slow start against Naomi Osaka could see her punished.

Barty knuckled down well to see off Belarusian youngster Aryna Sabalenka in her opener and followed up with a gritty display against Italian Camila Giorgi.

But at 21 she is far from the finished article and there will be plenty of opportunities for the powerful Osaka to stamp her class.

The Japanese ace has never gone beyond the third round at a Grand Slam but at 20 she has her best days ahead of her and there has been plenty of promise from her performances at Melbourne this week.

Osaka was impressive in dismissing experienced Russian Elena Vesnina in the last round and has enough about her to clinch a set in what could be a nervy encounter between two youngsters with a bright future.

Recommendation
N Osaka to win a set
1pt 5-6
Paddy Power
