Sydney International 2017 matches for Wednesday, January 11 - Thiem, Cuevas, Radwanska in action today

Suneer Chowdhary in News 10 Jan 2017
Dominic Thiem takes to court today.

The upset bug has taken the Apia Sydney International by storm, but some of the top seeds have managed to survive the scare. Dominic Thiem, Pablo Cuevas and Agnieszka Radwanska will be leading the draw for the day on Wednesday.

Thiem rose to prominence in 2016, after working incredibly hard. With an unbelievable amount of stamina and hardly any signs of fatigue, the 23 year old rose to the number 8 rank in the world. While he has begun the 2017 year on a rather rocky note by losing in the quarters of ATP Brisbane, his form and skills are still a threat to the other players.

His opponent for the day is Gastao Elias, whom he has met twice on the tour already. The world no. 81 has lost on both the occasions to Thiem, with both those losses coming in 2016 itself.

Coming to Cuevas, this is his first tournament of the season. 2016 was a decent year for the Uruguayan, who rose to the 22nd place in the rankings. He will be facing Nicolas Mahut in his opening match, to whom he lost in the 2016 Rome Masters. There is certainly a psychological disadvantage and Mahut, being a capable player, can certainly cause the upset.

Moving to ladies half, Radwanska is only player in the top 10, to have made it to the quarterfinal. This is her second consecutive quarterfinal of the season, as the Pole certainly looks strong. She will be facing Ying-Ying Duan next, whom she already defeated in the WTA Shenzhen last week.
 
In Shenzhen, Radwanska lost to Alison Riske in the same round and she'll be keen on avoiding this upset again. 

Johanna Konta too will be in action on Wednesday when she goes up against Daria Kasatkina. The 19 year old Russian caused a major upset by taking out the world no. 1 Angelique Kerber in straight sets. This will certainly be a challenging one for Konta, which makes this game highly interesting one to watch.
