Novak Djokovic: will there be a fourth win at the US Open?
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, tennis was quarantined for several months.
And while the Wimbledon Championships 2020 has been moved to July 2021, one of the Grand slam tournaments-the US Open-has finally started in New York.
So, at the moment, the favorite of the US Open is considered to be the first racket of the world Novak Djokovic. Recall that he has already won the US Open three times in his career (in 2011, 2015, and 2018).
In addition, Novak Djokovic is:
- Seventeen-time Grand slam singles winner;
- Five-time winner of the ATP World Tour finals, which is a world record;
- Novak Djokovic is the youngest semi-finalist of all Grand slam tournaments (20 years 246 days);
- Winner of the Davis Cup (2010) with the Serbian national team.
At the moment, Novak is the only representative of the «Big Three» at the US Open 2020, as Roger Federer misses the rest of the season due to injury and surgery, and last year's champion Rafael Nadal decided not to leave Europe during the prolonged Coronavirus epidemic.
1xBet has prepared its review of past matches involving Novak Djokovic and its forecast for a likely fourth Serbian victory at the 2020 US Open.
At the start of the competition, he defeated Damir Djumhur of Bosnia and Herzegovina with a score of 6:1, 6:4, 6:1.
The odds in this game were as follows:
- Novak Djokovic Wins 3.47
- Damir Jumhur's Victory 2.35
- A draw of 2.61
However, during the match against Bosnian Damir Jumhuri received a warning for too much time to complete the filing. It is worth noting that at the US Open, this rule is observed much more strictly than at the last «Masters» in new York. After the game, Djokovic said:
«Yes, I think it's a problem. I didn't know. No one paid any attention to it. The lack of communication again bothers me, and such rules seriously affect the game. We play at a certain pace, we got used to it at the masters, which ended just two days ago. And now we have a completely different rule. I believe that we must first ensure more effective communication before changing the rules,» - Djokovic was quoted as saying by Tennis Head.
Novak's next opponent will be Briton Kyle Edmund.
«He has a great serve and forehand, and these are two powerful weapons. I played some great matches with him, a difficult four-set match at Wimbledon. He doesn't feel much pressure on the big stage, he even likes such challenges,» - Djokovic said.
According to our forecasts, the betting table will look like this:
- Novak Djokovic Win 3.54
- Kyle Edmund's Win 2.86
- Draw 3.01
Time will show, whether Novak Djokovic will be a four-room winner of the US Open. In the meantime, follow the latest news from the world of tennis with 1xBet.
