The first singles match of the day will be played at the Ken Rosewall Arena where two unseeded players Frenchman Julien Benneteau and South Africa’s Kevin Anderson go head to head. 

Benneteau defeated American qualifier Ryan Harrison, who had ousted the top seeded John Isner in the previous round while Anderson defeated Denis Istomin in straight sets. 

Following this, the second men’s singles semi-final will have Bernard Tomic taking on third seeded Andreas Seppi. 

Tomic dropped the opening set of his quarter-final against defending champion Jarrko Nieminen before rallying to win that quarter-final 6-7, 6-4, 6-2. Seppi took out the eighth seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain in straight sets, winning 6-4, 7-5 to set up a clash with Tomic.
