We are heading into the most intense terrain of Wimbledon and the action has been pumping at a crazy rate. Jannik Sinner’s battle against Carlos Alcaraz will be the one to watch in the Round of 16 for sure. And there is no doubt that it is a stellar showing whenever Novak Djokovic will play and he will take on Tim van Rijthoven here. Djokovic didn’t miss a beat against his Serbian compatriot Miomir Kecmanovic, winning 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 in an amazing game. Meanwhile, Tim van Rithjoven has pulled off upsets and defeated Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-4, 6-3, 6-4. Will this be another light affair for Djokovic who is now in the full groove?

Novak has hit his peak rhythm once again and you don’t wanna face the electric Serb when he is in such a groove. He gave no chance to his fellow countryman Miomir at all. The interesting bit is that Miomir was having laser focus and had some incredible moments but not winning a set and not eking out a single game in the first set can suggest otherwise. Djokovic kept eating up Miomir’s serves and as a result, he eked out a 41-17 receiving points advantage.

When Djokovic began his campaign against Kwon soon-woo and did lose a set to him but that game only woke him up. Since then, Novak has been not allowing the opponents to settle at all. He did so against Thanasi Kokkinakis as well and he is yet to lose more than four games in a set since the last two games. Novak hasn’t drawn an equal match so far is what I feel.

Tim van Rithjoven did another number on a seeded player as he took down Nikoloz Basilashvili in three sets. In an incredible fashion, Tim completely took away Nikoloz’s serve game and had a lot of breaks. He had an incredible 41-21 receiving points advantage due to his incredible serve-breaking game. Tim had an incredible 88% on the first serve but did commit 8 double-faults compared to 7 by Nikoloz.

Before that game, Tim had a marathon affair versus Reilly Opelka. In four sets, that game went to three tiebreakers, with Tim winning two of them. Tim has done an incredible job in the first service department. Remember this is a man who has first made it to the Grand Slam main leg and someone who is ranked below 100. His rise reminds me of Harmony Tan’s rise in the women’s leg. But can these two kick on when the matches have grown trickier?

Context

Novak usually gives no chance to players who are ranked around 100 or even around 50. In fact, most times, even the seeded players(Unless top three or so), stand no chance against him. He has acclimatized to the conditions and even if his opponents give their best, he is able to dominate them. Tim has affected a couple of big upsets and has risen to the scene out of nowhere but this game can be too much for the Dutch player to handle.

Win/Loss Betting

As per 1xBet, Tim enters with the odds of 23! It means that the bookmakers are giving the Netherlands’ player absolutely no chance. This has been the case for the opponents that have come across Djokovic.

Total Games

Djokovic's last three games have totaled 25, 25, and 37, it means that two of them have been on the low side. It is because Novak is finishing these games quickly and frankly, it can happen here as well. Betting Under the total of 31.5 seems to be a safer bet which has the odds of 1.94 as per 1xBet.
