Novak Djokovic vs Jannik Sinner: Preview
Top seed Novak Djokovic has kept his reputation alive and has performed as everyone expected him to perform on the grass this season. He started his show with a four-set win over Kwon Soon-woo in the first round, followed by a straight-set victory against Thanasi Kokkinakis in the second round. He was absolutely ruthless in terms of numbers and performance against Miomir Kecmanovic in the third round. He started the match with a stalemate win not letting Miomir get a single game. Djokovic continued his embarking form in the second set as well and although Kecmanovic showed some signs of a fightback in the third set, in the end, it was an easy win for Djokovic to take him to the round of 16. Then he faced Van Rijthoven and beat him 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 to reach the quarter-finals.
On the other hand, Jannik Sinner has been kind of okay this season maintaining a 75 percent win ratio having made it to the quarterfinals of the Miami Masters, Monte Carlo Masters, Australian Open, and the Italian Open. He started his Wimbledon season with a tough test against the three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka but came up with an impressive performance and beat him qualifying to the second round where he faced Mikael Ymer who as well couldn’t match his brilliance. He then went on to face John Isner and made it an interesting battle despite the straight-set victory. Then he played the fan-favorite Spanish youngster Carlos Alcaraz, and despite winning the first two sets with ease, he lost the third set and took the game to the fourth set and won the match eventually by 6-1, 6-4, 6-7(8-10), 6-3 and progressed to the quarter-finals.
Djokovic beat Sinner in the only match they have played against each other at the 2021 Monte-Carlo Masters.
