Expert Betting Tips
Pospisil has more powerful serve than Andujar, so it is unlikely that Djokovic will beat him as easily as the Spaniard, but we do not expect a long match anyway. After a long break Novak warmed up at the Laver Cup and in Tel Aviv he has shown a good form and a high quality performance. Do not forget that Novak is highly motivated. It is not for nothing that the Serb decided to play at an ATP 250 tournament, which he does not do so often. It's all about the championship race where he is behind his competitors. So the former world number one will not be squeamish about the 250. We believe that Novak in Tel Aviv will get another confident victory.
