For the second time in a row, Novak Djokovic will face an opponent with whom he has a long h2h record. It started with Stan Wawrinka and Hubert Hurkacz. Because neither the Polish nor the Serbian tennis players have dropped a single set, one of them will lose his perfect score.
Djokovic has limited his participation this season to only the most important tournaments. So far, he has three titles from seven competitions in which he has competed. The Australian and French Opens were the most important. With his outstanding performance in the first three rounds, Novak has a good chance of reaching the Wimbledon final.
Hurkacz reached the Wimbledon semifinal in 2021, and based on his performance in past matches, he could reach this stage again. He is one of the tournament favorites after winning his first three matches in a row. However, having Novak Djokovic as a fourth-round opponent reduces his chances.
