Rublev vs Djokovic: prediction for the Australian Open match
Andrey Rublev takes on Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open on Wednesday. Who will progress to the next round? Here's our prediction.
1st set: total under 9.5
Djokovic played under 9.5 games in the first set in 3 of his last 5 matches.
Tie-break - yes
In the last 5 matches, Rublev played 2 tie-breaks.
Djokovic has overcome his hamstring injury and picked up good momentum. In the round of 16, he crushed De Minaur, dropping only five games. We don't think Rublev has a chance against the Serbian star - in their most recent meeting at the Final Cup, Djokovic beat Rublev in two straight sets.
Our prediction - handicap (-6) to Djokovic
Djokovic surrended only five games to Rublev in December. We expect another short match - take the under.
Second wager - total under 36 games
