In his first-round match-up against Kwon, Djokovic was challenged in various ways. He looked a bit fidgety to start the game but became acquainted with the grass conditions as the game went on. In the first set, Kwon tested Djokovic a lot, covering the great ground, but Djokovic did what he does best. Wait for the opponent to wear down and then use his incredible forehand to extract fast serves and make sure that the opponent is then overwhelmed by sheer power. The first-round match-up was typical of how Djokovic plays.

Although Kwon won the second set, Djokovic ensured that he finishes the business in style and took the third and fourth sets to seal his first win at the Wimbledon. Novak had 15 Aces in the game, whereas he had an incredible 85 win% on the first serve. He had just two double faults throughout the game, compared to 7 by Kwon Swoon-woo. Djokovic won 74 receiving points whereas Kwon had 64. Novak had 74 service points whereas Kwon had 64 service points.

Thanasi did a great job in his first game and the 23-year old did a great job of withstanding the first set of volleys thrown by Kamil Majchrzak. The game went to the tiebreaker and the tiebreak scenario itself was highly intense. Kokkinakis eventually won the tiebreaker seven-five. In the second set, Thanasi obliterated Kamil, beating him 6-2 to extract a big two-nil set lead. In the third set. Kamil came up with some fierce volleys but by the end of, Thanasi eked out a 7-5 set win and won in three straight sets.

Thanasi did a great job of winning on the first serve, eking out an 81% advantage compared to 64 by Kamil. Thanasi won 40 receiving points whereas Kamil extracted 32 receiving points. Thanasi had 73 service points compared to 68 by Kamil. At one point, Thanasi won five games in a row whereas he won 15 service games compared to 12 by Kamil. Thanasi did commit 6 double-faults which was rather too much.

Context

Novak is a much more accomplished player than Thanasi in all ways. He has amazing composure and doesn’t commit many double-faults. He can be down a set or down during a set, but his ability to exhaust opponents can make a huge difference. He is never out of a game and Thanasi will need to be accurate with his serve game here, while he needs to avoid committing double-faults, which did six times in a three-set game. I believe Novak will be unstoppable here.

Win/Loss Betting

As if it is any surprise, Thanasi has been given almost insurmountable odds of 12.5 to win this game. Well, this is not out of the grain. Djokovic enters as the overwhelming favorite with the odds of 1.045

Handicap

It’s obvious that Novak is going to be slated to have a big-difference win here. The odds for a handicap of -8.5 games(at least a win with a nine-game difference) are 2.01. I believe this is pretty much the area around which the game will be hovering.
