Djokovic vs Struff: another victory of the Serbian star?
On July 26, Novak Djokovic goes against Jan-Lennard Struff in the second round of the Tokyo Olympics. Will Jan-Lennard be able to fight back? Our answer is in the prediction below.
In the opening match in Tokyo, Djokovic showed his most serious intentions for the ultimate success at the Olympic Games. In the first round of the tournament, Novak played against the little-known Bolivian, Hugo Dellien. Novak won in two straight sets (6-2, 6-2). Djokovic's chances for the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics are very high. If nothing extraordinary happens, he should take another trophy.
Struff is not in his best form at the moment. Nevertheless, he had a confident start at the Tokyo Olympics. In the first round, the German tennis player defeated Thiago Monteiro, who is even in a deeper crisis than Jan-Lennard himself. Struff finished the match in two straight sets with the score of 6-3, 6-4. In the match, the German hit eight aces and won two break-points.
Djokovic has played 2 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
Under 9.5 games were played in the first set in 3 of Struff's last 5 matches.
Djokovic is confidently leading the head-to-head with a score of 5-0. We believe that the upcoming match will not be a serious challenge for Novak and that he will close his opponent in two sets. We expect a confident victory of the World №1.
Our prediction - Djokovic to win with a handicap of (-5.5) games.
