Our favourite Novak Djokovic vs Taylor Fritz – match predictions

Fritz, determined to break an eight-match losing streak against the Serbian maestro, hopes to turn the tables and create a Melbourne upset. The duo faced off in the US Open as well with more questions asked about the American than Djokovic’s supreme form.

3-1 to Novak Djokovic @ 5/2 (3.50)

There is little to doubt Djokovic’s ability to traverse around Fritz’s challenge. After all, he has defeated the American number 1 eight times. The Serbian ace has never tasted defeat against Fritz and after bageling Mannarino in the first two sets in the last round, he is in supreme form. Fritz’s stock has increased with his 3-1 victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas and we believe while he cannot overcome Djokovic, he should be able to shave off one set against the Serb.

Over 33.5 Games @ 4/5 (1.80)

There were only 27 games played in the US Open duel between Djokovic and Fritz. The Serb only needed 21 games to get past Mannarino in the previous round and 31 the previous game. The rejuvenated Fritz is the toughest obstacle in his path and we believe the match will be a longer affair. Fritz played 43 games against Tsitsipas and although he in unlikely to succeed against Djokovic, the match should see at least 33.5 games.
