Novak Djokovic vs Alexander Kovacevic – Match Predictions

As these players go head-to-head for the first time in their respective careers, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Novak Djokovic to Win 6-0 in Any Set

We would like to point out that Alexander Kovacevic has struggled to find his form in recent weeks. The American has lost five singles matches in a row, and four of those were in straight sets. This will be a tough task for Kovacevic, as he faces one of the greatest players to ever play the game. It’s important to note that Novak Djokovic has the second most bagels among active players with 110; and considering Kovacevic won just one set in his last five matches, we are fairly confident that the 22 time grand slam champion will win at least one of these sets by a 6-0 scoreline.

Less Than 27 Total Games

We’ve already established that Alexander Kovacevic is going through a rough patch at the moment. Considering he’s playing against one of the greatest returners in tennis history, we don’t think the American player will win up to nine games in this match. Like the odds suggest, this should be a very one-sided contest; and while we have no doubt that Alexander Kovacevic will put up a hard fight, we don’t think he’ll be able to take nine games off Novak Djokovic. That said, we are taking the under 26.5 games option.

To be fair, Novak Djokovic isn’t really enjoying his best form at the moment; the former World number 1 suffered three losses in his last seven singles matches. With the absence of Rafael Nadal however, this is Novak Djokovic’s best chance of winning his third Roland Garros title; he’ll fancy his chances against a struggling Kovacevic.

Unlike today’s opponent, things have not gone too well for Alexander Kovacevic in recent weeks. He has lost five singles matches on the bounce, winning just one set in the process. This will be the biggest match of the American’s career, it’ll be interesting to see how he’ll fare against the 22 time grand slam champion.
