Ben Shelton vs J.J. Wolf Preview
Once we explained our Australian Open Predictions and odds, let’s take a look at the preview Australian Open results of each player.
Beating Zhang in the first round made Ben Shelton’s path to the fourth round easier. The 20-year-old is living a great experience that not many players of his age can achieve. It would be normal for each round to be more difficult, but for Shelton it has been the opposite. Every round he has advanced has been easy, the last one he won in straight sets, in a match that lasted only 2 hours.
In the previous season, the 24-year-old didn’t even make it past the qualifiers, but this season his Australian Open Results have exceeded his expectations. So far, J. J. Wolf has been lucky with the crossings, as he has not faced any top 20 players, his toughest opponent perhaps being Argentinean Diego Schwartzman. Defeating him in straight sets was a boost for Wolf, who went on to beat fellow American Michael Mmoh.
