Read our free predictions and tips for Andrey Rublev vs Novak Djokovic to place the best bet.
Andrey Rublev needs to Win at Least One Set
So far, Novak Djokovic has looked unbeatable in this tournament, dropping only one set in four matches. The former World No. 1 has not been broken in three of the four matches he has played. On the other hand, Andrey Rublev will be a bigger fish to fry than the other players he has faced. The Russian has a strong return game, averaging nearly 15 breakpoints per match. While we believe Novak Djokovic will win this match, we don’t believe it will be in straight sets.
Over 34.5 Games
We’ve already established that we don’t expect this match to end in straight sets, and we believe it will last at least 35 games. It’s worth noting that this match could go straight sets and still finish comfortably above this line. Given Rublev’s recent form, we’re fairly confident that he’ll give the nine-time Australian Open champion a run for his money, which is why we’re backing the over.
Match Preview: Rublev vs Djokovic
Now that we’ve settled on our predictions for this game let’s look at how these players have performed thus far.
In the final four rounds of this tournament, Andrey Rublev defeated Dominic Thiem, Emil Ruusuvuori, Daniel Evans, and Holger Rune. The 25-year-old will face his most difficult opponent yet: an in-form Novak Djokovic. Can Rublev beat the former World No. 1 to advance to the semi-finals?
Novak Djokovic extended his winning streak to nine matches with a straight-sets win over Alex de Minaur; he has now won 34 of his last 35 competitive singles matches. As he approaches his 10th Australian Open title, Novak will be optimistic about his chances against Andrey Rublev.
