Stefanos Tsitsipas to Win at Least One Set

To be fair, Novak Djokovic has practically been unbeatable in this tournament. The former World number 1 won his last four matches in straight sets, and has only surrendered one set from the first round through to the final. As a matter of fact, Djokovic hasn’t lost at all this year, he has a perfect 11 wins from 11 in 2023, with a title at Adelaide to show for it.

Although Novak Djokovic dropped just two sets across 11 matches this year, we don’t think he’ll win this one in straight sets. Granted, the 35 year old has made some really tough players look like amateurs in this competition; compared to these players however, Stefanos Tsitsipas will be a relatively tougher opponent.

The Greek player has consistently been a top 10 player, he’s number 4 in the world right now. Also, Tsitsipas has some experience playing against the nine-time Australian Open champion, especially in grand slams. It’s important to point out that these two have met twice in grand slams, and those encounters ended in five sets. On that note, we are backing the 24 year old to take at least one set from this match.

Novak Djokovic to Win 3-1

While we do expect Stefanos Tsitsipas to give Djokovic a run for his money, we still believe the former World number 1 will win this match comfortably. That is because Novak Djokovic has dominated recent clashes between these players. Interestingly, this used to be an even contest at first, with Tsitsipas winning three of the first five encounters between these players. However, it has gone downhill for him since then, as he lost eight matches in a row against the Serb.

Furthermore, these two clashed four times in the last year, and Djokovic won three of those encounters in straight sets. Taking everything into account, we are fairly confident that the nine-time Australian Open champion will win this match in four sets.

In fact, Rafael Nadal at the French Open is the only opponent that’s considered to be tougher than Djokovic at the Australian Open. As the former World number 1 competes for his 10th Australian Open title, let’s see how these players have fared so far in this tournament.

Interestingly, he’ll face Novak Djokovic, the same player he met in his previous final.
