Fernando Verdasco – Andreas Seppi
Verdasco had to give up a set against service-monster Gilles Muller but has otherwise looked in fine shape for this Grand Slam event.
Seppi had to fight through a hard five-setter against Kukushkin in the second round and by winning he’s gone further in this tournament than he’s ever done before. In fact, if he wins today he’ll break his own personal best as he’s never been passed a third round in a Grand Slam in his entire career.
Verdasco has a 6-1 record against Seppi, and it’s the last 6 encounters he’s won, losing just one set on the way. I don’t think Seppi will break his record.
Lukasz Kubot – David Goffin
Kubot looks to gone one round better than he fared last year and he looks in fine form to do so. He has yet to lose a set in the tournament which means he’s had to work far less than Goffin.
The young Belgian has fought out no less than 2 5-sets matches. He could be at the end of his ropes.
