Novak Djokovic: Will he reign supreme again?
The Serbian player has gathered limelight for a lot of reasons, whether it is the COVID Saga during the Australian Open or his tendency to be vocal about issues without caring for what others think, there are many lovers, even outside of tennis. That is all the off-the-court stuff, the on-the-court stuff is what makes Novak one of the most loved athletes. This is a man who has won 20 Grand Slam titles and had been number one for more than 7 years. Seriously, his play on the court leaves even his peers speechless.
In the French Open, “Clay Maestro” Rafael Nadal broke his spell in the Quarter-Finals. Before that, he had crushed Stefan Tsitsipas to claim the Italian Open, and before that, he was ousted by Carlos Alcarez in a grueling affair during the Semis of Madrid Open. Although Grand Slam success was slim this year, this is the guy who loves playing on the grass. During last year’s Wimbledon, he trumped Matteo Berrettini in four sets to claim the title. Even if Novak has been slowed down a bit, he will enter the tournament as the number-one seeded player who will always be expected to make a deep run on the basis of his body of work.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xbet!
Kwon has made huge strides in the ATP circuit and surely, his performances have resulted in a bunch of upsets at times, but he is located in such a place that he ends up meeting top-ranked players in the initial rounds of the big tournaments. He is ranked at 75 right now but this is someone who has been ranked as high as 52 just last year during November. Kwon has been not winning as much as he should to go among the top-50 but just making it to the Grand Slams is a big success no matter how you look at it.
During French Open, he managed to steal a set from Andrey Rublev but lost in four rounds eventually. And in the prior tournaments, even playing against players outside of even 100 rank, Kwon has been ousted in the first or second round at best. He has not even beaten a single top-50 player this season and it is clear that he needs to add new elements to his game to even stand a chance.
Who will win the match between Novak Djokovic and Kwon Soon-woo?
On grass, Novak is virtually impossible and it will be interesting to see how Kwon tackles him here, taking even a single set will be a huge feat, but will the 35-year-old be able to keep his steam up during the latter parts of the tournament? No matter how he fares here, Kwon will need to unlock his best game which he hasn’t done in a long time to be honest. These two have met once before during the Serbian Open on clay, and Novak had an easy two-set win in that game.
Without any surprise, the bookmakers at 1xbet give an overwhelming edge to Novak Djokovic, mathematically, they believe Kwon has absolutely no chance of getting through here, getting the odds of 23!
That is why it is wise to perhaps shift our attention to the handicap situation. Novak has been given odds of 1.75 to pull off a win by the difference of 9.5 games. I believe the margin will be higher and a wager on the handicap of -10.5(Odds: 2.3) can be placed.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
