Who will win the second semi-final between Australia vs Spain?
Nick Kyrgios has demonstrated throughout this tournament that when he's focused and motivated he can beat anyone. He also acknowledged that the threat of suspension that hovers over his head from his indiscretions last season is also a factor.
Alex de Minaur is such a different character to the volatile Kyrgios, but is showing every indication he can mix it with the world's elite. But the task can't get much tougher than world No.1 Rafael Nadal.
Written off a number of times in recent years, Nadal keeps responding to his critics. And with grafter Roberto Bautista Agut alongside him, the Spaniards will be tough to beat. It's all set up for an epic showdown and just maybe the Aussies can keep the dream alive over the three ties.
