Pretty solid R16 lineup, probably the best since Wimbledon 2017. Not many true upsets have occurred in the first week, which leaves us many potentially juicy matches for the last 4 rounds. The big 3 maintain dominance in early rounds, while NextGen players make a surge and grab 5 R4 berths. Lost Gen also has a positive resurgence by taking another 5 spots, while old-timers like Cilic, Berdych and RBA still go strong. How do you guys think things will unfold?

Since 2009 USO probably.

At 17 WB too many were off form.

Pretty good stuff. Mentioned it in my AO Talk thread which was merged.

Coric could really make his first slam semi, though Zverev will wish to prove himself but Raonic is sticky good right now, could be tough.

What I really wish to happen is to see a good Zverev vs Coric QF, and under no circumstances see Raonic def both of them.
Big 3 will probably all reach the SF. I really wouldn't mind some surprises here like Tsitsipas def. Fed or Coric/Zverev def. Djokovic.

It's going to be a great round 4 for sure. Djokovic should be on upset alert against Medvedev, who is hitting with greater power and confidence. Zverev usually matches up well against servebots so I have him going through against Raonic. Tsitsipas has the right game and tactics to cause Federer a lot of trouble, as we saw in Perth, but I think the great man still has too much for him. Finally, Dimitrov is in much better form than Tiafoe while Nadal is looking too strong for even a red-hot Berdych to overcome.

Medvedev def. Djokovic
Nishikori def. PCB

Zverev def. Raonic
Coric def. Pouille

Cilic def. RBA
Federer def. Tsitsipas

Dimitrov def. Tiafoe
Nadal def. Berdych

[1]Djokovic vs. [15]Medvedev - Djokovic wins
[23]PCB vs. [8]Nishikori - Nishikori wins (suprised that PCB made it so far)

[4]A.Zverev vs. [16]Raonic - Raonic wins (Zverev will choke)
[11]Coric vs. [28]Pouille - Coric wins

[6]Cilic vs. [22]RBA - Cilic wins (in epic 5 set 5 hour play)
[14]Tsitsipas vs. [3]Federer - Federer (but not so easy as it seems)

Tiafoe vs. [20]Dimitrov - Tiafoe wins
Berdych vs. [2]Nadal - Nadal wins


Onwards:
Djokovic - Nishikori - Djokovic wins
Raonic - Coric - Coric wins
Cilic - Federer - Federer wins
Tiafoe - Nadal - Nadal wins

Djokovic - Coric - Djokovic wins
Federer - Nadal - Nadal wins

Djokovic - Nadal - Nadal wins

Not such of fan, but Nadal seems for me at the best form here. He really plays strong.

One factor that everyone must consider is Djokovic against Nadal and Federer. Djokovic against Nadal in particular is the most determined and aggressive Djokovic the world sees. I don't care how well they're playing up until a potential final, but if Djokovic and Nadal/Fed meet then expect Djokovic to step up his level.

After Federer's dismissal, it is incredibly likely there will be a repeat of the 2012 final.
