Tommy Paul vs Nicolas Jarry- Match Predictions

Novak Djokovic to win and total over 29.5 games

Novak Djokovic is going after a record 23rd Grand Slam title, and no matter how good Davidovich Fokina is, he stands no chance against the two-time Roland Garros champion. The Spaniard will put on a fight and will stay competitive in the match, which will take this one to at least 30 games, with the Serbians winning at the end.

First two sets total over 18.5 games

Djokovic usually does not start at full speed, just like that was the case in the previous round. Also, Davidovich Fokina is the type of player who can get the best out of him. So this one is a very interesting choice for the first two sets to go over 18.5 games in total, which would not be any problem.

Novak Djokovic vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina Preview

Davidovich Fokina has already felt how it is to defeat Djokovic on clay and the Serbian but it is questionable if he is ready to do that in a best-of-five match.

Novak Djokovic

Djokovic has recently failed to third place in the ATP rankings, but there is no doubt he is one of the main favorites to win the tournament. The Serbian is 22-4 for the season and 7-3 on clay. He had no real challenge in the first two rounds defeating Aleksandar Kovacevic and Marton Fucsovics in straight sets. Djokovic is a double winner at the Roland Garros, and last year, he lost in the quarterfinals against Rafael Nadal. This season he has won two titles at the Australian Open and in Adelaide.

Davidovich Fokina is ranked at no. 34 at the moment, 10 spots lower than his career high. The 23-year-old is 19-13 for the season and 8-5 on clay. In the previous two rounds, he defeated two French teenagers. Luca Van Assche was defeated in straight sets in the second round, while Arthur Fils won a set in the opening round. This is the first time for Davidovich Fokina to reach the third round at the French Open. His best results this season were the quarterfinals in Doha, Indian Wells, Estoril and Barcelona.
