Rune is, of course, a terrific player and prospect, but perhaps his biggest strength is his unshakeable certainty that he’s the greatest player of all time – a sense that’s unlikely to have been diluted by the appointment of Boris Becker as his coach. So he won’t be fazed by facing the second greatest ever – who needed three sets to beat him in Paris last week – and if Rune’s power-game is working, this will be a really fun match.
It is difficult to find words to describe Djokovic, as he is truly one-of-a-kind in the world of sports. He will most likely easily defeat Rune and any other competitors, as he has done in the past three Grand Slams. He will defend his title with ease and amaze us all with his incredible talent and modesty. However, it would be unwise to underestimate Rune, who has great belief in his abilities. If Djokovic is not in top form, which is rare, Rune could potentially cause an upset.
The game will start at 9pm in your local time, or 8pm in Greenwich Mean Time.
