Novak Djokovic vs Marton Fucsovics: Preview
Novak Djokovic is arguably the best tennis player ever! Having already won the Australian Open and French Open this year, he will look to add a Wimbledon title to his 2021 trophy collection.
After dropping the first set against Jack Drapper in the opening round, Djokovic sped through his route to the quarter-finals in double-quick time. But the ‘Djoker Steamroller’ may face some resistance when Marton Fucsovics, the surprise quarterfinalist, steps onto Centre Court for the first time in his career on Wednesday!
Fucsovics has endured a rather chequered season. However, he has been brilliant throughout this Championship with impressive wins over Diego Schwartzman and Jannik Sinner. His most recent match against Andrey Rublev stood out for the courage and tenacity he displayed to come back from a deficit of 2 sets to 1 to beat the highly favoured Russian!
Novak Djokovic vs Marton Fucsovics: Head-to-Head
Though both players have been on tour for several seasons, they have played each other only twice. Both matches were on hard courts and needed an extra set to decide the winner. Djokovic came out victorious on both occasions, leaving no room for surprises.
Will we have an upset when they meet on grass?
Novak Djokovic vs Marton Fucsovics: Match Prediction
Fans will certainly enjoy some great tennis when Djokovic and Fucsovics take to battle. Both players have dazzled us with some impressive tennis in the rounds gone by. But when an unstoppable force and an immovable object reside in the same person, it’s hard to bet against him. I’m referring to Novak Djokovic, of course!
The odds will favour Djokovic heavily, which will make betting on his victory quite unfruitful. Considering Fucsovics’ confidence and grit it may seem a decent bet to pick Djokovic to lose the first set and win the match.
Prediction: Djokovic to win in 4 sets.
