Tennis Prediction of the Day Novak Djokovic vs Roger Federer
Even though this match promises a lot of show, I think Novak Djokovic is much better prepared from several points of view, both physically and mentally, and will dominate the ball exchanges against Roger Federer, the Swiss being more prone to mistakes than his opponent. or. Having 3 victories against Federer in this tournament, in which he lost only one set, I expect Djokovic to get a new victory, thus qualifying in the semifinals.
Bet Tips: N. Djokovic -2.5 games
Novak Djokovic has a great motivation here, needing victory to break out of the group and to hope to finish the year in the 1st place ATP. His form is good, Nole coming after an extremely demanding match with Thiem, lost dramatically in the tie-break of set 3. His service is good but Nole does not send extremely many aces, having recently 5 with Dimitrov, 2 with Shapovalov, 4 with Berrettini and 9 with Thiem. Roger Federer will also be extremely motivated, especially after losing the Wimbledon final dramatically to Nole, though he clearly dominated it. Federer played well, and the overall service went well, with 5 aces with Thiem and 9 with Berrettini. And in the direct matches he always served more aces: 25-10 at Wimbledon, 17-8 at Paris indoor or 6-5 at their last match at the Champions Tournament.
Prediction Today: Roger Federer -1 handicap as well
Novak Djokovic needs victory here in order to pass the groups, being in the same situation as his opponent. For Nole there is also the stake of the world number 1, but obviously both will be highly motivated. Djokovic has served well lately, having many matches in Paris without break, but as number of aces stays average: 4 aces with Berrettini and 9 with Thiem in a very long match. Roger Federer is much better at service, having 5 aces with Thiem and 9 with Berrettini. Now he needs to force himself to put Nole in trouble and he will certainly try to make the most of this advantage. In the direct meetings Federer dominated the aces chapter, the ratio being 25-10 at Wimbledon, 17-8 at Paris, 11-4 at Cincinnati, 5-10 at the Australian Open, 6-5 and 6-2 at the last ATP Finals. So with one exception Federer advantage.
Bet Tips: More aces: Roger Federer
