Novak Djokovic vs Matteo Berrettini: Prediction and Betting Tips
Novak Djokovic is on course for a historic career record
The number one seed Novak Djokovic is moving steadily towards his goal in this year’s US Open. First, the Serb wants to break the record of the number of total Grand Slams won. Secondly, Novak is on course for winning all four Grand Slams in one year.
If that happens, he will be the first player to achieve that in men’s tennis since Rod Laver in 1962. Steffi Graff won all four majors in 1988. However, faced, the three-time US Open champions some hard times in the opening set of his last two matches. But Djokovic prevailed and won both matches in four sets.
Undoubtedly Djokovic is one of the best players that the tennis courts have ever seen. In fact, he holds the best record for the “GOAT” rank coming in the first place. Despite facing tough opposition, Novak proved many times that he is up for the task.
Djokovic Key Stats
- Djokovic hit on average 50.3 winners per match at the US Open
- The world number one lost his serve eight times in four matches
- 32.75 is the average number of games Djokovic played at the US Open
Matteo Berrettini still not reached top form
Matteo Berrettini broke onto the top eight rankings after a great 2021 season. Notably, the Italian won two titles in London and Belgrade and made it to the final in Wimbledon and Madrid. Also, a very healthy 33-8 overall win/loss record makes Berrettini a player very much in form.
However, the 26-year-old suffered a muscle injury a few weeks back and played just two matches after Wimbledon. As a result, Berrettini looked a bit shaky in some of his matches. He needed five sets to overcome in-form Ivashka in the third round. Against Moutet and Otte, the Italian lost a set in each match as well.
During his match in the final of Wimbledon against Djokovic, Berrettini managed to win the first set. But he couldn’t keep his momentum as the Serb started returning better in the remainder of the match. Hence it is very important for Berrettini to serve well and keep the rallies short.
Berrettini key stats
- The average number of games played by Berrettini in four matches is 40
- Berrettini won 82% of the points on his serve
- The Italian lost his serve seven times in four matches
Novak Djokovic vs Matteo Berrettini Prediction
We could see history in the making if Novak Djokovic wins this year’s US Open. First through the top seed has two hurdles to overcome. Notably, Novak won all three H2H matches with Berrettini but surely this one is the most important one for the Serb.
Surely, the world number one will battle to keep his dream of achieving his goals alive. On the other hand, Berrettini needs to be better in terms of unforced errors. Of course, the Italian must take risks but it needs to be well calculated.
