Novak Djokovic to Win in Straight Sets

Alex de Minaur is currently on a four match winning streak, which includes an impressive victory over Rafael Nadal at the United Cup. Interestingly, the Australian has surrendered just one set across three matches in this tournament. However, de Minaur will have to go through Novak Djokovic, the greatest player in the history of this competition.

It’s important to point out that Djokovic has won nine consecutive matches in all competitions; he hasn’t lost here in Melbourne since 2016. Taking everything into account, we are predicting a straight sets victory for the former World number 1.

Under 36.5 Games

While we expect this match to end in three sets, we also think it’ll go below the 36.5 games mark. Novak Djokovic is the best returner on tour, and his matches tend to be one-sided. It’s important to point out that all of Djokovic’s matches in this competition went below the projected total; and for this reason, we’re taking the under here.
