The Aus. Open Catch-Up: Round Three - Thiem-Kyrgios magic; Djokovic doubts; Pliskova + Medvedev rage; Muguruza dominates; Norrie/Nadal; Crowdless courts

In the latest episode of The Passing Shot, the tennis podcast by fans, Joel and Kim catch up on all the action from the 3rd round of the Australian Open.

From matches with crowds, to matches without, they cover all the main talking points from Days 5 and 6, which saw Kyrgios losing from 2 sets up to an unnerved Dominic Thiem, Djokovic surviving an injury scare and unknown qualifier Aslan Karatsev entering new territory.

They ruminate over the somewhat processional scorelines in the women’s matches before looking ahead to some absolutely stacked 4th round lineups, which could be Grand Slam Finals in their own right.

They also assess Cam Norries’s performance against Rafa Nadal, and the impact of the lack of fans on the fortunes of Alex De Minaur.

It’s almost halftime for the Collect A Set Challenge, which currently sees Joel leading the pack with 3 correct predictions, much to Kim’s dismay.
