Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player of the last few years, and he has, against Roger Federer a positive balance (26:22). Above all, he has decided the last four meetings in all since the beginning of 2015, nine of the twelve duels for themselves.
in Addition, he has acted at the ATP finals at a higher level. While Federer and Dominic lost to Thiem in straight sets, losing to Djokovic in an epic Match, which can tilt on both sides. And Federer defeated while Matteo Berrettini scores, but also because Djokovic was in comparison with the better, outclassed the Italians, but literally.
You can twist it and turn it as you want: The Swiss rises in London today as an outsider to the last group game which will decide on the participation in the semi-final. However, this does not mean that he has to lose. He certainly has the means to beat its rivals. In the Wimbledon Final he lost to a wafer-thin, even though he was in a playful way superior.
We name three reasons for a victory of the 38-Year-old: - The advantageous conditions: While Djokovic gets along well everywhere, but the conditions in the O2-Arena prefer the offensive set player. The fast and flat ball bounce increases the effect of the mark-up and makes it difficult to Hit precise Passing shots. And the Service and the network game are Federer's domains.
- The support of the audience: The man from Basel is know as Wimbledon, the spectators in the back, and in a hall it will be generally louder. In the O2-Arena, the Fans are also on average more extroverted, enthusiastic as the All England Club. Against Thiem, Djokovic had the majority of the people against themselves, pleasing to the duration.
The pressure on Djokovic: Clearly, Federer's desire to win, today. But he also knows that his current Form is not enough. The could help him, relaxed attitude. The Serb, however, is under great pressure, he makes himself. He suffers from the fact that Federer and Rafael Nadal's global are clearly more popular. All the more rather he would outdo the two sporty. With a title win, the 32-Year-old Federer's best brand would materialize no matter who triumphed at the ATP finals six times. In addition, he could finish for the sixth Time in a year as number 1, thus the Swiss surpass, and with record-holder Pete Sampras is equal to drag.
