Thursday evening sees the 51st encounter between Djokovic and Federer with the Serb edging the overall win-record 28-22.
Federer hasn’t beaten Djokovic in his last five attempts and that shows no sign of stopping as time steadily catches up with both men. As Federer continues to rely more on his service game the number of tiebreaks in this match has shot up with five in the last seven sets between the two, making Tiebreak in Match? – Yes @ 5/4 good value.
The early game this Thursday sees in-form Dominic Thiem take on ATP Finals first-timer Matteo Berrettini.
Coming off the back of two impressive victories – dispatching both Federer and Djokovic in his opening games – the Austrian is in flying form.
Conversely, Berrettini failed to ever really land a blow winning a total of eight games in four sets of tennis against Djokovic/Federer. One would think the young Italian won’t want to go out with a whimper – but it’s hard to see past a straight sets victory for Thiem here.
