The Third Round is here!
Wimbledon is a great avenue for tennis fans to engage in a lengthy viewing of their favorite tennis stars. We also see new faces that go unnoticed by casual tennis fans who only dial-in during the Grand Slams, so this is a celebration of both the current glory and the upcoming glory. The first two rounds have been amazing and the same will happen during the third round. In this third-round match-up, Serbian compatriots Novak Djokovic will take on Miomir Kecmanovic. Djokovic had an easy win in the second round over Thanasi Kokkinakis as he took the game 6-1, 6-4, 6-2. Meanwhile, Miomir Kecmanovic defeated Alejandro Tabilo 7-6, 7-6, 3-6, 6-3.

Novak Djokovic: In danger mode
Djokovic showcased what he is all about in his last win versus Thanasi Kokkinakis. The difference from the first-round game was that Djokovic was hitting it with much more power and also had improved focus. That game against Kwon helped Djokovic wake up and set him on a mission. Djokovic finished the business in three straight sets after Kwon had forced him to get a win in four sets.
It was the serve game that saw improvement for Novak from the first to the second game. Thanasi did put up a fight but he was unable to break Novak’s serve which made all the difference. In the last game, Djokovic had an incredible 71% first serve and won 82% of those serves while winning 72% of the second serves. Novak also broke Thanasi’s serve multiple times and ended up with 40 receiving points compared to 17 by Thanasi. A total show!Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
Miomir Kecmanovic: Rising rapidly
Miomir played a much closer game than Djokovic did in Second Round. Facing Alejandro Tabilo, he had to undergo tiebreakers in tandem. During the first tiebreaker that came in the first set itself, Miomir clinched 7:4 advantage to get it done but the gruelling game continued as the second set also went to a tiebreaker. Once again, Kecmanovic came through 7:3. Then Alejandro got the third set 6-3 but with a 2-1 set lead, Miomir closed the deal 6:3 in the fourth set.
Kecmanovic defeated John Milman in the first round and he has registered his name as one of the rising stars. In the last game, Miomir was in excellent control and committed just a single double-fault. Apart from that, he also showed that he can be both effective in serving and also breaking the service. It wasn’t an easy battle against Alejandro but now he is in even trickier territory as he will take on a revved-up Novak.
Who will win the match between Novak Djokovic and Miomir Kecmanovic?
Novak has shown in the last game that he can go the distance here and I believe a win before Semis can be considered an upset for Djokovic(depending upon the draw of course). Miomir is peaking and at just 22 years old, he has reached the 25th seed in Wimbledon, which is a huge achievement, something no one can take away from the Serb. But what will be a bigger achievement? Wouldn’t it be beating a fellow Serb and one of the best ever to do it in Djokovic? These two have met twice before, on clay courts, where Djokovic won both times.
Miomir has the odds of 21 here! Yes, 21. It means that the bookmakers at 1xbet believe a win for him is impossible. Djokovic has the comfortable odds of 1.02
Djokovic enters with an obvious advantage here but I think Kecmanovic will give him a much better fight than Thanasi, taking it to four sets. I believe the total will be “Over” 29.5 for 2.05.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
