Novak has been on the limelight since late April and the tournament in Belgrade, where the Serb reached the final but lost to Andrey Rublev in three games. In Madrid he reached the semifinals, was close to the final, but lost in three sets with two tie-breaks to Alcaraz. But in Rome, Novak has finally taken the trophy without losing a single game, knocking out such strong clay players as Ruud and Tsitsipas. If Novak for a week did not lose the form of Rome, the Japanese does not have a chance not only to take a match, but also a set.
For Yoshihito Roland Garros will be the clay fifth tournament, but it is unlikely that his preparation for the French Major successful. In Munich the Asian made it to the main draw, but dropped out of the tournament after his match against Ruusuvuori. Then came disappointments in Madrid against Muzetti, in Rome against Cerundolo and in Lyon against Blanchet. All were 0:2 defeats. Overall, Nishioka has a 4-match losing streak, awful statistics on the ground, which only serves to reinforce the idea that the Japanese against Djokovic does not have a single chance of success.
Expert Betting Tips
By all accounts, Nishioka has almost no chance for minimal success in the upcoming game. Not only Djokovic defeated the Japanese player twice in singles, but Novak was excellent in Rome and did not lose a single set. Nishioka looks terrible on clay court, barely made it to the Masters in Munich where he dropped out after the first game and then lost in Madrid, Rome and Lyon. Our opinion is that Novak Djokovic in the opening match of Roland Garros-2022 will achieve the confident and quick victory.
