Novak Djokovic vs Cristian Garin : Preview
Novak Djokovic continues his title defense as he enters the 4th round of Wimbledon 2021 after defeating Denis Kudla 6-4, 6-3 7-6(7) in over 2 hours and 16 minutes. Djokovic had a rather difficult match as Kudla put on a great show against the World No. 1 in the 1st set and also in the 3rd set after Djokovic demolished him in the 2nd set.
Djokovic enters the 4th round at the All-England Club for the 13th time in his career in his 16 appearances so far and will be looking to continue his run as he chases his hattrick of title at Wimbledon this year.
Cristian Garin reaches the 4th round at Wimbledon for the very first time as he defeats Spaniard Pedro Martinez 6-4, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. This is the first time Garin has gone past the 1st round after exiting from the Grand Slam 3-years in a row failing to advance into the 2nd round.
Garin has shown some great determination this year as he won his 1st round match in 5-sets and later won the 2nd and 3rd round matches in 4-sets as he sets up the meeting with the defending champion.

Garin comes into the tie with a career Grass record of 11-5 across his 4 seasons played on Grass and is currently on 16-9 for the season having gone 0-2 on Hardcourts and 13-7 on Clay. His 3 victories in Wimbledon this week have been his only wins on Grass this season as he did not feature in any other tournament on Grass.
Djokovic will be the favourite for this clash as he continues battling and winning every time he steps on the court. He is 102-19 on Grass across his career and with his 3rd round win, he gets on 30-3 for the season. Looking at these numbers, it’s no brainer that Djokovic will be advancing into the quarter-finals yet again.
