Russian Daniil Medvedev, who has been on a streak of 20 consecutive victories (10 of them against top-10 rivals), will seek this Sunday (09:30 CET) to dethrone Serbian Novak Djokovic, eight times champion at Melbourne Park, in the great final of the Australian Open. The number one in the world will have in his hand to conquer his eighteenth ‘major’ title and, with it, reduce the distance with the 20 of Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal.
The grand final of the first Grand Slam of the year is “one of the best matches that can be seen today on hard court” and AdriTenis He has not missed the opportunity to make his forecast. “It will be a very close match, with the undoubted quality of Djokovic and his record in Australia with eight out of eight finals won. In front, a Medvedev who is playing at a spectacular level, with 20 wins in a row and three consecutive titles, and has not lost since October 30 ”, begins his analysis.
According to the tipster of the social network Betsfy, “In such long and even matches, it is feasible for both players to win a set”, so he opts for the option that more than three sets will be played in the final: “It is rare for either player to win 3-0 two”.
For AdriTenis, a key aspect in the end may be the service. “They are two great servers, especially Medvedev, and on tracks as fast as these usually involve tie breaks, long sets and few breaks, at least at the beginning when there is more scoring,” he details. That is why “the set can fall from either side in a hypothetical tie break”, explains the tipster, who sees ‘Nole’ breaking the serve “at some isolated moment” of the duel to get a set.
The tennis expert has also analyzed the ‘head to head’ (previous face to face) to develop his tip. “They have met four times on the hard court, with two victories for each and with three of those four matches winning both tennis players a set, even when it was the best of three sets and not the best of five as it will be on Sunday”, indicates.
“Their only Grand Slam match was won by Djokovic 3-1 with a tie break that Medvedev took,” he recalls from the round of 16 match at the 2019 Australian Open. The Balkan won on that occasion 6-4, 6 (5 ) -7 (7), 6-2 and 6-3 in three hours and 19 minutes. “Now everything is even, with Djokovic superior, but with discomfort, and with Medvedev on a roll, although it is already doubted if it is rather constancy,” he says.
With all these arguments, AdriTenis recommends investing, in Betfair, in which there will be more than 3.5 sets in the final of the Australian Open that will measure Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev this Sunday.
