Australia’s main hope takes on Benjamin Bonzi in this third-round battle. Who will take the win? Check out my tennis predictions today for this match below:

Bonzi vs De Minaur – Match Predictions

This upcoming third-round game at the Australian Open is a pretty intriguing one. Alex De Minaur, the highest-ranked Aussie in the draw is seeded 22. And he is taking on Benjamin Bonzi, the unseeded Frenchman who produced a huge win in his last match against Spain’s Carreno Busta. Both guys are clearly bidding for a 4th round appearance at the Australian Open, which would be huge for either player.

De Minaur has only made it to the 4th round of his home slam on one occasion – last year in 2022. As for Bonzi, he’s never made it past the 2nd round at the Australian Open. In fact, he’s never gone beyond the 2nd round at any Grand Slam event. So clearly, Bonzi is in the form of his life in terms of Grand Slam competitions. 

But why have I picked the two markets mentioned above for this match? Find out below where I explain my betting predictions.

De Minaur -1.5 Set Handicap

For this market to be a winner, De Minaur must win by either 3-1 or 3-0 in sets. Now, I’ve chosen this one to serve as a bit of a cushion to the selection shared below. Also, De Minaur has won both of his previous two matches by scores of 3-0 and 3-1 in sets. 

De Minaur to Win 3-0

I don’t think that Bonzi will have much left in the tank going into this game. He played an epic five-setter against Carreno Busta, and he was on the court for over 4 hours in that match. Given that De Minaur is a guy who runs opponents around and forces them into long rallies, I think this market is highly possible.

Bonzi vs De Minaur Preview

Once you reach the 3rd round of a slam, the gloves are off. Yet who has the best record here and who is in the best form? Let’s take a quick preview.

Benjamin Bonzi Preview

This is the best Grand Slam performance that Bonzi has ever produced. Yet he’s had to endure some serious suffering in the second round to get here. With that said, he’s playing great tennis. Prior to the Australian Open, he made the finals of Pune – one of the main warm-up events. And at the moment, he is ranked 48 in the world.

Alex De Minaur Preview

Alex De Minaur is the main hope for the Aussies in the men’s singles. He is ranked 24th in the world, and he is seeded 22. Adding to this, he’s been far more efficient in the opening two rounds compared to Bonzi. This means he will be fresher than Bonzi, and he’s also beaten the Frenchman in both of their previous meetings. 

Bonzi vs De Minaur Head to Head

As touched upon above, the head-to-head with these guys is 2-0 in De Minaur’s favor. Both of these matches were played on a hard court too. So of course, this bodes well going into this hard-court clash.
