Novak Djokovic vs Aslan Karatsev Preview
I’ll take Novak to win in straight sets here, paying a reasonable $1.70. Karatsev has had an impressive run to reach this point, but Novak is definitely a level above anyone he has faced so far.
He realistically should’ve been out earlier, when FAA pulled off a huge choke after winning the first 2 sets comfortably. Dimitrov also got off to an early lead against him in the quarters, before inexplicably choking midway through the 2nd.
If he starts poorly against Novak, I just don’t see how he gets back into this. Two impressive matches in a row don’t discount the rather disappointing preceding decade. If Novak’s injury is serious, I expect him to look to finish this one quickly to get maximum prep time ahead of what should be a much tougher final.
