Join us while we analyze the two top plays for the ATP Australian Open Day 10. Find out our two selections, where the value is and also the best bookmaker to place your tennis picks.

Gael Monfils (23) vs. Milos Raonic (13)
?For the second consecutive year, Milos Raonic reaches Australian Open quarterfinals. The Canadian surprised the 4th seed and 2014 champion, Stan Wawrinka, in a tough five sets battle. Raonic’s biggest improvement in recent months is his level of aggressiveness, with the Canadian rushing much more often into the net. Throughout the tournament, Milos went to the net 202 times, winning 69.80% of those points. If we consider the total points he won on this event – not counting with his aces, service winners and his opponents double faults – the Canadian won 37.50% of his total points at the net.

Gael Monfils took advantage of a very easy draw to reach his first Australian Open quarterfinals. The highest ranked player Gael faced so far was the world no. 71, Nicolas Mahut. As we mentioned in previous articles, Monfils usually struggles to find the proper motivation, but he should be more than motivated to play his first quarterfinals in Melbourne. The French is a terrific athlete, with his movement and defensive skills as his best weapon.

This will be the third career meeting between these two players, with Gael leading 2 – 0 on h2h, but both matches were played some years ago in 2011 and 2013.

Raonic made a terrific match against Wawrinka, however he’ll have a different challenge this time. Gael is one of the best defenders on tour and he can return almost everything with his outstanding sliding skills. Milos is far from the best volleyer on tour, he has improved at the net but still gives some chances for his opponents to hit passing shots. It should be a closer match than tennis odds suggest, and for that reason, we suggest to add to your tennis picks the split between the Over and Gael’s spread.

David Ferrer (8) vs. Andy Murray (2)
?David Ferrer is the only player remaining who hasn’t dropped a single set so far, defeating all his opponents in straight sets. The Spaniard made an outstanding performance against John Isner in the 4th round breaking his opponent three times and saving all three break points he faced.

After losing his first set on the competition against João Sousa, Andy Murray defeated the home favorite Bernard Tomic in straight sets. It’s never easy to face a tricky opponent like Bernard, especially when he’s playing in Australia, however Murray managed to overcome this tough opponent, ending the match with 43 winners / 22 unforced errors.

Murray leads 12 – 6 on h2h, winning the previous five matches between them. Their last contest on a Grand Slam was last year at the French Open, where Andy claimed the victory by 7 – 6 6 – 2 5 – 7 6 – 1.

It should be an entertaining match between two excellent baseliners; however, there isn’t much Ferrer can do against this opponent. Andy is currently at a much higher level than Ferrer and the Spaniard will have a hard time against Murray’s outstanding defensive skills. If we look closely to the h2h, four of Ferrer’s six victories where achieved on clay. It’s also important to mention that Andy won the two matches played last year on Hard Court, both in straight sets. With this in mind, we suggest taking advantage of Murray’s valuable spread as your top play for this contest.
