2017 AUSTRALIAN OPEN
DAY 10 MEN’S NOTES
Wednesday 25 January
Quarterfinals Bottom Half
No. 3 Milos Raonic (CAN) v No. 9 Rafael Nadal (ESP)
No. 11 David Goffin (BEL) v No. 15 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL)
On court today…
- Back in a Grand Slam quarterfinal for the first time since 2015 Roland Garros, 14-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal will hope to continue his resurgence at this year’s Australian Open when he takes on Milos Raonic for a place in the last 4 here. Nadal has lost 2 of his last 3 matches against the Canadian, but a victory today would be his 50th at the Australian Open – only the 2nd major at which he would have recorded 50 match-wins, after Roland Garros – and secure the Spaniard a spot in his 24th Grand Slam semifinal.
- If he is to deny Nadal and book a spot in the semifinals here for the 2nd straight year, Raonic will have to record his 4th career victory over a Top 10 player at a Grand Slam. Since 2 of his 3 career victories over Top 10 players at the Grand Slams have come at Melbourne Park, Raonic will have high hopes of making Nadal his 3rd Top 10 scalp here. A win would see him overtake compatriot Eugenie Bouchard and become the first Canadian player – man or woman – to reach 4 Grand Slam semifinals.
- Not since the 1989 Australian Open, when Thomas Muster reached the last 4, has a No. 11 seed reached the semifinals here, but David Goffin will hope to defy his seeding when he takes on Grigor Dimitrov in their quarterfinal clash. The Bulgarian is the last No. 11 seed to reach the semifinals at a major – at 2014 Wimbledon – and will hope that he can match his career-best winning streak from that summer today. Dimitrov won 10 straight matches in 2014 when he took the title at Queen’s and reached the last 4 at Wimbledon, and this month’s Brisbane champion will match that winning run if he can find a way past Goffin.

- RAONIC is bidding to reach his 4th Grand Slam semifinal and take sole occupancy of 1st place ahead of Eugenie Bouchard on the list for the most Grand Slam semifinals reached by a Canadian player – man or woman – in history.
|Player||Grand Slam semifinals reached|
|Milos Raonic||4?? (2014, 2016 Wimbledon, 2016-2017?? Australian Open)|
|Eugenie Bouchard||3 (2014 Australian Open, 2014 Roland Garros, 2014 Wimbledon)|
|Carling Bassett-Seguso||1 (1984 US Open)|
|Robert Powell||1 (1908 Wimbledon)|
- Raonic is bidding to reach the semifinals here for the 2nd straight year and become the first Canadian player – man or woman – to reach the last 4 here on multiple occasions. Last year here as No. 13 seed he recorded his best Australian Open result by reaching the semifinals (l. Andy Murray). Eugenie Bouchard is the only other Canadian player in history to have reached the semifinals here, falling in the last 4 at Melbourne Park in 2014.
- By reaching the last 8 here for the 3rd straight year, Raonic has reached his 6th Grand Slam quarterfinal and extended his record for the most Grand Slam quarterfinals reached by a Canadian player – man or woman – in history:
|Player||Grand Slam quarterfinals reached|
|Milos Raonic||6 (Australian Open 2015-17, 2014 Roland Garros, 2014, 2016 Wimbledon)|
|Carling Bassett-Seguso||4 (1983 Australian Open, 1984, 1986 Roland Garros, 1984 US Open)|
|Eugenie Bouchard||4 (2014-15 Australian Open, 2014 Roland Garros, 2014 Wimbledon)|
|Robert Powell||3 (1908, 1910, 1912 Wimbledon)|
- Raonic is bidding to record his 4th career victory over a Top 10 opponent at a Grand Slam. 2 of his 3 Top 10 victories at the majors have come at the Australian Open – when he defeated No. 10 Mikhail Youzhny here in 2011 and No. 4 Stan Wawrinka in 2016. His only other Top 10 win at a major came in 5 sets against No. 3 Roger Federer in the semifinals at 2016 Wimbledon. He has a 3-9 win-loss record against Top 10 players at the majors overall.
- If he wins today, Raonic will ensure that he remains in the world’s Top 4. He must better Stan Wawrinka’s result here to remain at No. 3.
- Raonic is making his 7th Australian Open appearance and his 24th Grand Slam appearance
- Raonic recorded his best Grand Slam result at 2016 Wimbledon when, as No. 6 seed, he became the first Canadian man to reach a Grand Slam final, falling to Murray 64 76(3) 76(2). Elsewhere at the Grand Slams last year, he reached the round of 16 at Roland Garros (l. Albert Ramos-Vinolas) but fell in the 2nd round at the US Open (l. Ryan Harrison).
- Raonic won his 8th career title at 2016 Brisbane (d. Roger Federer) to maintain his record of winning at least one title every year since winning his first at 2011 San Jose. All 8 of his career titles have come on a hard court. Also in 2016, he finished runner-up at Indian Wells-1000 (l. Novak Djokovic) and fell to Murray in the final at both Queen’s and Wimbledon. He reached 5 further semifinals.
- Raonic reached a career-high ranking of No. 3 on 21 November 2016 after reaching the semifinals at the ATP World Tour Finals, where he fell to Murray in the longest 3-set match in the tournament’s history at 3 hours 38 minutes. He plays here on the same ranking of No. 3.
- Raonic warmed up for the Australian Open as top seed and defending champion at Brisbane, where he fell to Grigor Dimitrov in the semifinals.
- Raonic became the first Canadian to be seeded in the men’s singles at a Grand Slam event in the Open Era at 2011 Roland Garros. He plays here seeded No. 3 – his highest Grand Slam seeding.
- Raonic was born in Montenegro but moved to Canada in 1994. He started playing tennis aged 8.
- Raonic started working with former Wimbledon champion Richard Krajicek, who reached the semifinals here in 1992, ahead of the 2017 season. He is also coached by Riccardo Piatti.
- 2009 Australian Open champion NADAL is bidding to reach a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time since he won the title at 2014 Roland Garros.

Active players in bold.
- The Australian Open is Nadal’s 2nd most successful Grand Slam in terms of match-wins, but his least successful in terms of titles won and semifinals reached.
|Titles won||Win-loss record||Semifinals reached|
- Nadal is bidding to reach his 24th Grand Slam semifinal. He has a 23-6 win-loss record in quarterfinals at the majors – but 4 of his 6 losses in the last 8 have come at Melbourne Park. He has a 4-4 win-loss record in the last 8 here, compared to 9-1 at Roland Garros, 5-0 at Wimbledon and 5-1 at the US Open.
- Nadal is bidding to win his 2nd Australian Open title and become the first man in the Open Era – and only the 3rd man in history – to win each of the 4 Grand Slam titles twice. Roy Emerson and Rod Laver are the only players to have won each Grand Slam on two or more occasions [see Preview page 3].
- Nadal has won 4 of his last 5 meetings with Top 3 opposition at the Grand Slams. His only defeat to a Top 3 opponent at a major in that time came in his most recent encounter with a Top 3 player at a Grand Slam – when he fell to Djokovic in the quarterfinals at 2015 Roland Garros. He has a 14-8 win-loss record against Top 3 opposition at the majors overall.
- Nadal is one of the 4 players aged 30 or over to reach the quarterfinals here from the 46 who started the men’s main draw – the most 30-somethings to reach the last 8 at the Australian Open since 1977, when there were 5. The Open Era record for the most 30-somethings in the semifinals at a Grand Slam is 3 – at 1968 Roland Garros.
- By reaching the quarterfinals here for the 9th time, Nadal has joined Djokovic in joint-3rd place on the Open Era list for most Australian Open quarterfinal appearances behind Federer (13) and Edberg (10).
- By reaching the last 8 here, Nadal has reached his 30th Grand Slam quarterfinal and taken sole ownership of 6th place on the list for most Grand Slam quarterfinals reached in the Open Era ahead of Pete Sampras (29). Only Federer (49), Jimmy Connors (41), Djokovic (37), Andre Agassi (36) and Ivan Lendl (34) have reached more quarterfinals at the majors.
- If he wins today Nadal is projected to rise to No. 6 in the ATP rankings – unless either David Goffin or Grigor Dimitrov go on to win the title here, when he would be No. 7. If Nadal wins the title here, he will rise to No. 4.
- By defeating No. 6 Gael Monfils in the round of 16 here, Nadal defeated a Top 10 player at a Grand Slam for the first time since he defeated No. 2 Djokovic to win the title at 2014 Roland Garros. His win over Monfils here ended a 4-match losing streak against Top 10 players and was his first Top 10 win since he defeated No. 6 Kei Nishikori to win the title at 2016 Barcelona.
- By defeating Zverev in 5-sets in the 3rd round here, Nadal ended a 3-match losing streak in 5-set matches and improved his 5-set record to 18-8. He has a 6-3 win-loss record in 5-set matches at Melbourne Park.
- Last year here Nadal lost in the 1st round for the first time in his career, falling to Fernando Verdasco in 5 sets. It was just the 2nd time that he had lost in the 1st round at a Grand Slam, having also lost his opening match at 2013 Wimbledon (l. Steve Darcis).
- Elsewhere at the Grand Slams in 2016, Nadal reached the round of 16 at the US Open (l. Lucas Pouille), but gave a walkover in the 3rd round at Roland Garros and missed Wimbledon due to a left wrist injury. This is his 12th appearance at Melbourne Park and his 47th Grand Slam overall.
- Away from the majors, Nadal’s best results in 2016 came during the clay court season when he won back-to-back titles at Monte Carlo-1000 (d. Gael Monfils) and Barcelona (d. Kei Nishikori). It was his 9th title at both events, and took his career total to 69 titles. Nadal also reached the final at Doha (l. Djokovic) and the semifinals at 5 other tournaments.
- Also in 2016, Nadal won his 2nd gold medal at the Olympic Tennis Event after clinching the men’s doubles title alongside Marc Lopez at Rio 2016. He narrowly missed out on a medal in singles, falling to Nishikori 62 67(1) 63 in the bronze medal play-off.
- Nadal is looking to win his 15th Grand Slam title and close the gap on Federer in the list of all-time Grand Slam title holders. He is currently joint-2nd with Pete Sampras on the list behind Federer (17). He is one of the 3 Grand Slam champions to reach the quarterfinals here from the 6 who started this year’s men’s main draw.
- Nadal’s best performance at the Australian Open is winning the title in 2009 (d. Federer). He also reached the final in 2012, losing to Djokovic in the longest men’s Grand Slam final on record at 5 hours, 53 minutes, and in 2014 (l. Stan Wawrinka).
- Nadal is aiming to win his first hard court tournament in over 3 years. He has not won a hard court tournament since defeating Gael Monfils to win the title at 2014 Doha. His total of 16 hard court titles is the 4th highest among active players (behind Federer, Djokovic and Murray).
- Nadal warmed up for the Australian Open by reaching the quarterfinals at Brisbane (l. today’s opponent). It was his first tournament since October, when he lost to Viktor Troicki at Shanghai-1000, after he pulled out of Basel, Paris-1000 and the ATP World Tour Finals with a wrist injury.
- Nadal has been coached by his uncle, Toni Nadal, for his entire career. He added former Australian Open finalist Carlos Moya to his team ahead of the 2017 season. His fitness trainer is Rafael Maymo.

- GOFFIN is bidding to become the first Belgian man in history to reach the semifinals at the Australian Open.
- Goffin is bidding to become the first Belgian man to reach a Grand Slam semifinal since Xavier Malisse at 2002 Wimbledon. Just 5 Belgian men in history have reached a Grand Slam semifinal – Paul de Borman (1904 Wimbledon), Jean Washer (1925 Roland Garros), Jacques Brichant (1958 Roland Garros), Filip Dewulf (1997 Roland Garros) and Malisse.
- Goffin is looking to record his 9th match-win at Melbourne Park and claim sole ownership of the record for the most Australian Open match-wins by a Belgian man in history. By reaching the quarterfinals here, he equalled Malisse and Christophe Rochus at the top of the list:
Australian Open match-wins by Belgian men (all-time)
|Player||Win-loss at Australian Open|
- Goffin is bidding to record his 30th Grand Slam match-win. Just 4 Belgian men in history have recorded 30 Grand Slam match wins – Malisse (58 Grand Slam match-wins), Brichant (53), Philippe Washer (40) and Olivier Rochus (35).
- Goffin is bidding to become the first No. 11 seed to reach the semifinals here since Thomas Muster in 1989. Today’s opponent, Grigor Dimitrov, is the last No. 11 seed to reach the semifinals at a Grand Slam – at 2014 Wimbledon.
- By reaching the quarterfinals here, Goffin has become only the 2nd Belgian man to reach the quarterfinals at 2 different Grand Slam events after Jean Washer (1924 Wimbledon, 1925-26 Roland Garros).
- By reaching the quarterfinals here, Goffin has become the 5th Belgian man to reach multiple Grand Slam quarterfinals after Willie de Warzee (1904, 1908 Wimbledon), Jean Washer (1924 Wimbledon, 1925-26 Roland Garros), Jacques Brichant (1956-59 Roland Garros) and Filip Dewulf 1997-98 Roland Garros.
- By reaching the quarterfinals here, Goffin has equalled his best Grand Slam result. He also reached the quarterfinals at 2016 Roland Garros (l. Dominic Thiem), where he became just the 2nd Belgian man to reach the last 8 at Roland Garros after Dewulf (1997-98). He was only the 3rd Belgian man in the Open Era to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal after Dewulf and Malisse.
- Goffin rose to a career-high ranking of No. 11 after reaching the last 8 at 2016 Roland Garros and plays here on the same ranking. By reaching the quarterfinals here, he is projected to break in to the Top 10 for the first time at No. 10 (unless Dimitrov reaches the final and/or Roger Federer wins the title here). If he wins today, he is guaranteed to break into the Top 10 at No. 10.
- By reaching the quarterfinals here, Goffin has become the first Belgian man in history to reach the last 8 at the Australian Open. His previous best performance here was reaching the round of 16 last year, losing to Federer. This is his 4th Australian Open appearance and his 19th Grand Slam overall.
- Goffin’s victory over Thiem in the round of 16 here was his first victory against a Top 10 player at a Grand Slam. He has a 2-11 win-loss record against Top 20 opposition at the Grand Slams, with his only other win over a Top 20 player at a major coming against No. 20 Thiem in the 3rd round here last year.
- By defeating Opelka in 5 sets in the 1st round here, Goffin improved his 5-set win-loss record to 8-4. He has won 6 of his last 7 five-set matches, with his only defeat in a 5-set match in that time coming against Milos Raonic in the round of 16 at 2016 Wimbledon. He has a 1-1 win-loss record in 5-set matches at the Australian Open.
- At the Grand Slams in 2016, as well as reaching the quarterfinals at Roland Garros, Goffin reached the round of 16 at both the Australian Open and Wimbledon, but lost in the 1st round at the US Open (l. Jared Donaldson).
- Goffin’s best results in 2016 are finishing runner-up at Tokyo (l. Nick Kyrgios) and reaching 4 further semifinals, including at back-to-back Masters-1000 events at Indian Wells (l. Raonic) and Miami (l. Novak Djokovic).
- Goffin warmed up for the Australian Open by reaching the 2nd round at Doha (d. Robin Haase, Fernando Verdasco). He also played at the Kooyong Exhbition Event – defeating Bernard Tomic 62 64 and winning a single set against Ivo Karlovic 76.
- Goffin has played Davis Cup for Belgium since 2012. He helped Belgium reach its first Davis Cup Final since 1904 in 2015, which they lost 3-1 to Great Britain in Ghent. Belgium will play Germany in the World Group first round in Frankfurt on 3-5 February.
- Goffin was taught to play tennis by his father, who is a tennis coach at the Barchon Club in Liege.
- Goffin is coached by Thierry Van Cleemput and trains with the Belgian Tennis Federation in Mons.
- DIMITROV is bidding to reach the semifinals here for the first time and equal his best Grand Slam result.
- Dimitrov’s best Grand Slam result is reaching the semifinals at 2014 Wimbledon, where he defeated defending champion Andy Murray in the quarterfinals before losing to Novak Djokovic in the semifinals. He broke into the Top 10 for the first time afterwards at No. 9.
- Dimitrov is bidding to become the first Bulgarian player – man or woman – to reach multiple Grand Slam semifinals. Tsvetana Pironkova is the only other Bulgarian player to reach a Grand Slam semifinal – at 2010 Wimbledon.
- Dimitrov is bidding to record his 10th straight Tour-level match-win and equal his career-best Tour-level winning streak. He recorded 10 straight Tour-level match-wins in winning the title at Queen’s through to a semifinal finish at Wimbledon in 2014.
- Dimitrov is bidding to become the first No. 15 seed to reach the semifinals here since Arnaud Clement finished runner-up at the 2001 Australian Open. Tomas Berdych is the last No. 15 seed to reach the semifinals at a Grand Slam – at 2010 Roland Garros.
- Dimitrov is bidding to defeat 2 seeded players at a Grand Slam for the 2nd time. The only time he has defeated 2 seeded players at a major was at 2014 Wimbledon, when he defeated No. 21 seed Alexandr Dolgopolov and No. 3 seed Murray en route to the semifinals. He has a 2-6 win-loss record against seeded players at the Australian Open and a 6-15 win-loss record against seeded players at the majors overall.
- Dimitrov has won 8 of his last 10 matches against Top 20 opposition. His only defeats to Top 20 players in that time came against No. 1 Djokovic at 2016 Paris-1000 and No. 2 Murray in the final at 2016 Beijing. He has a 5-12 win-loss record against Top 20 players at the Grand Slams.
- By reaching the quarterfinals here, Dimitrov has equalled his best Australian Open result. He also reached the quarterfinals here as No. 22 seed in 2014 (l. Rafael Nadal).
- If he wins today, Dimitrov is projected to rise to No. 12 in the rankings unless Roger Federer wins the title here. If Dimitrov goes on to win the title here, he will rise to career-high ranking of No. 6.
- Dimitrov reached a career-high ranking of No. 8 in August 2014. He dropped as low as No. 40 on 18 July 2016 – his lowest ranking since February 2013 – but has since climbed back up the rankings and plays here at No. 15.
- Dimitrov plays here seeded No. 15 – his highest Grand Slam seeding since he was seeded No. 11 at 2015 Wimbledon. This is the 4th time he has been seeded at the Australian Open.
- Dimitrov warmed up for the Australian Open by winning his 5th career title – and first since 2014 Queen’s – at Brisbane (d. Kei Nishikori). 3 of his 5 career titles have come on a hard court.
- Dimitrov is the only man to have won a pre-Australian Open tournament to reach the quarterfinals here. Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka are the only players in the last 10 years to win the Australian Open having won an Australian Open warm-up event. Wawrinka won Chennai before lifting his first Grand Slam title here in 2014, while Djokovic won Doha last year prior to winning his 6th title in Melbourne.
- Last year here Dimitrov fell to Federer in the 3rd round. This is his 7th consecutive Australian Open appearance and his 26th major overall.
- Elsewhere at the Grand Slams in 2016, Dimitrov reached the round of 16 at the US Open (l. Murray) and the 3rd round at Wimbledon (l. Steve Johnson). He fell to Viktor Troicki in 5 sets in the 1st round at Roland Garros. He has a 5-5 win-loss record in 5-set matches and a 2-1 win-loss record in 5-set matches at the Australian Open.
- Dimitrov’s best results in 2016 were runner-up finishes at Sydney (l. Troicki), Istanbul (l. Diego Schwartzman) and Beijing (l. Murray). He reached 4 further semifinals – at Delray Beach, Cincinnati-1000, Chengdu and Stockholm.
- Dimitrov finished 2008 as 3 in the ITF Junior Rankings after winning the boys’ singles titles at Wimbledon (d. Henri Kontinen) and the US Open (d. Devin Britton).
- Dimitrov has played Davis Cup for Bulgaria since 2008. He has a 16-1 singles win-loss record in Davis Cup and a 20-4 overall win-loss record. Bulgaria will host – and compete in – the Europe/Africa Zone Group III event in Sozopol in April.
- Dimitrov was part of the ITF 14 & Under European Team in Europe in 2004-05 and the ITF 16 & Under European A Team in Europe in 2006, funded by the Grand Slam Development Fund.
- Dimitrov started working with Dani Vallverdu, former coach to Murray and Berdych, in July 2016. His physio is Azdine Bousnana.
