We were waiting to know the match schedule.Day 8 of the 2024 Australian Open. Sunday 21 January Valid matches will start The round of 16 is a draw for men and women, and there is a small surprise. After 15 consecutive matches played in the evening in Melbourne, Novak Djokovic will play his eighth match of the day tomorrow.
It was the last time In the 2021 editionWhen he faced the Serbian champion and defeated the American FRance Tiafoe With degree 6-3 6-7 7-6 6-3.
It is clear that the organizers' decision came as a result of Nole's match against the Frenchman Adrian Mannarino. If Ben Shelton had been opposed, the decision would likely have been different.
In fact, Djokovic will face the Frenchman on Rod Laver Arena, not before 03.30 Italian time.. Novelty that relates too Yannick Siner. South Tyrolean (No. 4 in the world) has always played its games so far 12.00 local time (02.00 in Italian). In other words, Sinner was always playing the opening game at Margaret Court Arena.
Tomorrow there will be a time change. The sinner will always play In Mouloudia Algiers against Russian Karen Khachanov (seeded No. 15)ma Not before 06.00 Italian, 16.00 Australian. We will see if and how this change in scenario will have an impact on the performance of our standard bearer, which has been very convincing so far.
