Novak Djokovic vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Prediction:
As stated above, Djokovic holds a large edge over Tsitsipas on experience. As their head-to-head odd is currently sitting at 9-2. In addition, when considering their recent performance, the result doesn’t change much.
Even after failing to participate in multiple events due to covid restrictions, Djokovic easily maintained his top-10 position with excellent performance. He added a new grand slam and 3 open titles in his win list. Whereas, while Tsitsipas had a good run, he didn’t achieve much other than his first grass open event and one title defense. Additionally, his performance at the Grand Slam and major Masters event wasn’t much remarkable this year.
Right now, Novak Djokovic unquestionably has the advantage in the odds. But if Stefanos Tsitsipas can make the necessary preparations, recent adjustments to his playing style may give him a chance at the upcoming game.
