Our in-house coach, Calvin Betton, believes that Sinner has the ability to hit through Djokovic like Rune did. However, Sinner’s shots have more shape and are less flat compared to Rune’s, which is what Djokovic prefers.
Novak Djokovic finds a way to win. But that’s how it is with dominant champions: we tune in to marvel at their magnificence, but also, we tune in hoping to see them take a doing.
We can argue that Jannik Sinner has the potential to achieve this. He is currently performing well in front of his hometown fans and is one of the limited players who can overpower Djokovic.
Doesn’t it seem easy? However, we are aware that it is not the case. Djokovic possesses the abilities and intelligence to keep Sinner on the move and prevent him from unleashing his full potential. He also hits numerous balls, causing his opponent to eventually make an error. Despite this, an unexpected outcome is still possible. Even if that is not the case, there is a high likelihood of another exciting, intense, and competitive match.
The game will start at 9pm in the local time zone and 8pm in Greenwich Mean Time.
