Match Predict – Handicap (-5.5) for Djokovic

Djokovic is gradually returning to his former playing form. Novak has to defend his last year’s final in Rome, so he’ll be working hard to at least repeat last year’s achievement. The Serb holds a 22-6 advantage in head-to-head encounters with Wawrinka.

Total Games – Under 21

Wawrinka has just recently returned from a foot injury and now he is slowly getting back to his former level. Certainly, Stan needs time to get at least close to his former form. We expect Djokovic to win this encounter in two sets.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Novak Djokovic vs Stan Wawrinka 

Novak Djokovic:

Novak Djokovic defeated Aslan Karacev in the first match. Two sets were enough for the Serb to win (6-3, 6-2).

After the game, Novak admitted that it was easy for him because of his opponent’s endless mistakes. In fact, he did everything he wanted on the court.

Djokovic seems to have returned to his optimum condition when he feels the game rhythm perfectly and has no physical problems.

Since 2014, Djokovic has failed only once to reach the final at the Italian Open.

Stan Wawrinka:

Wawrinka can safely be called the main hero of the tournament so far. Stan played two incredible matches that came close to defeat but eventually found the strength to bounce back.

In the first round, the 37-year-old Swiss defeated Reilly Opelka (3-6, 7-5, 6-2). It was, incidentally, his first win in 15 months. Wawrinka had to miss a year due to a serious foot injury.

In the second round, Stan beat Laslo Dere. The Serb was led by a break in the third set, but the former world #3 won again (7-6, 3-6, 6-4).

Wawrinka ranked 361st in the ATP rankings and became the lowest-ranked entrant in the 1/8 of the Masters since 2009.

Safe Bets

In 3 of Wawrinka’s last 5 matches, less than 9.5 games have been played in the first set. We offer to bet on “1st Set Games – Under 9.5” with the odds of 1.50.
