Match Predict – Handicap (-3.5) for Djokovic

Ruud is a comfortable opponent for Djokovic. Novak has played against Ruud twice. The Norwegian has failed to win at least one match.

Casper is unlikely to put up much of a fight against the favourite. We reckon Novak will win a ticket to the final.

Total Games – Under 22

In their two head-to-head encounters, the 22.5 game mark has not been broken. That’s unlikely to happen tonight.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Novak Djokovic vs Casper Ruud 

Novak Djokovic:

Novak Djokovic reached the semi-finals of the Rome Masters for the ninth consecutive time.

On Friday, Novak beat Felix Auger-Aliassime. By the way, it was his 999th career victory. The match turned out to be absolutely crazy. The Serb led with a break in the first set but then lost a game on his serve as well. But at 5:5 the Canadian was mistaken again.

The second set followed a similar scenario. Djokovic failed to serve for the match at 5:3, and eventually, the showdown came to a tie-break, but here Novak played just perfect.

Djokovic played another classy match. Despite some mistakes, it is clear that he is capable of playing at the highest level again.

Casper Ruud:

Ruud, meanwhile, will play in the Masters’ semi-finals for the fifth time in his career.

On Friday, Casper defeated Denis Shapovalov (7-6, 7-5), who had previously stopped Rafael Nadal.

On the one hand, it’s a bit strange that Shapovalov beat Nadal but lost to Ruud. However, really, there’s nothing surprising here. The Canadian had a bit of luck in his match against Rafa. In the third set, Nadal was having trouble moving around due to a foot injury.

The match against Shapovalov was tense, just look at the score (7-6, 7-5), but there is one interesting point here. Casper had 15 breakpoints, while his opponent had only two.

All in all, this is clearly not a case where you can say that someone was just a bit luckier. Ruud played better in this match.
