Jannik Sinner against Marton Fucsovics head to head
Fucsovics lead 2-1. They were 1-1 in 2020 while Fucsovics won their last meeting of 2021.
Another convincing win for Sinner
He was clinical in the first round and even better in the second. Jannik Sinner appears to be enjoying his time in Melbourne as he clinched a second consecutive set win on Wednesday to continue his advance in the tournament.
The Italian, who was a quarter-finalist of the tournament last year, defeated Tomás Martín Etcheverry 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in just an hour and 46 minutes to advance to the third round of the tournament.
Sinner had started his campaign with a 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 win over Kyle Edmund in the first round.
Sinner was dominant in both games, getting broken once by the Brit in the first round, but didn’t have a single break point in the second round match against the world no. 79
The 15th seed gained 88% points on his first serve. He broke Etcheverry once in the first set and twice each in the other two sets to record another comfortable win.
The 21-year-old world no. 16 is a six-time winner on the tour but has yet to make it past the last eight in a Grand Slam. Made a flying start. He will aim to keep the momentum going through the rest of the tournament.

Fucsovics marches on
Marton Fucsovics continued his march forward in Melbourne as he defeated South Africa’s Lloyd Harris in four sets on Wednesday.
The world No. 78, who started the season by winning the Canberra Challenger, has looked good in the first two rounds. He came back from a set twice to win a five-set opener against Federico Coria and then held off Harris on Wednesday.
The Hungarian saved 8 of 9 break points he faced against Harris and converted 4 of 11 to defeat world No. 1. 186, 6-2, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 in a more than three-hour contest.
Against Coria, he had saved 13 of 20 break points and converted 7 of 18 to win in four hours and 15 minutes.
He’ll be a bit weary after spending over seven hours in the first two rounds, but the incentive to finish in the last 16 in Melbourne for the third time in six years will keep him motivated for the next round.
Can the Hungarian continue the triumphal march?
Sinner v Fucsovics prediction and tip
Sinner may have won just one of their three meetings, he will still be the favourite. He’s the fresher of the two after overtaking his first two opponents and looks dangerous in the tournament. Expect the Italian to win but Fucsovics can take a set from him.
The Australian Open 2023 will be played from January 16th to January 29th. Get all the latest tennis betting news here on our tennis betting blog. You can also get previews of the rest of the tennis matches here.
