After the match between Hubert Hurkacz and Novak Djokovic was postponed, what appeared to be inevitable occurred, as the Serbian tennis star advanced to the next phase. In the quarterfinals of Wimbledon 2023, he will now face Andrey Rublev, just as he did in the Australia Open.
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Andrey Rublev vs Novak Djokovic – Match Predictions
Get the most accurate Wimbledon tennis predictions for Andrey Rublev vs Novak Djokovic.
Rublev to Not Win a Set
In each of his matches, the Russian tennis star made a few errors that his rivals did not fully capitalize on. Given that Djokovic plays at a pace that is higher than the opponents Rublev has previously faced, he is likely to repeat that kind of error.
Three times, the 36-year-old has won in straight sets over Andrey. Due to Djokovic’s nearly faultless performance, we anticipate him to require just three sets this time to reach the Wimbledon semifinals.
Under 34.5 Total Games
In four of his last five encounters, Djokovic won in three sets and with fewer than 34.5 games. There were 25 games in their most recent head-to-head matchup. According to the statistics, I predict that there won’t be many sets in this match.
Andrey Rublev vs Novak Djokovic Preview
To set the right bets, take a look at the player’s preview before and other ATP Wimbledon predictions.
Wimbledon’s seventh seed will play in the quarterfinals after not competing in the previous tournament. Rublev has now won four matches in the competition, although it should be noticed that he dropped at least one set in three of them.
He struggled against Alexander Bublik in the previous round. Rublev took the first two sets, but Bublik won the following two in a tiebreaker. Andrey maintained his pace till the end, needing only a breakpoint to win the match.
Hubert Hurkacz, the only opponent capable of stealing at least one set from Novak Djokovic, was the Serbian player’s last opponent. This was without a doubt the most difficult match for the current Wimbledon champion.
The first two sets were decided in a tie-break because neither player surrendered any of his serves. The third set was similar, but Hurkacz broke Novak on his final serve. Djokovic had to play a fourth set for the first time, and this time he converted a break point to win the match.
Rublev vs Djokovic Head to Head
Both players have met four times in the last three years. Djokovic has won three of the last four meetings between the two.
They last played each other in the first Grand Slam of the year. On that occasion, the Serbian tennis player defeated Rublev and went on to win the title. Novak Djokovic won six of his seven matches in Australia in straight sets, including his showdown with Andrey.
