Novak Djokovic Preview – Djokovic to face a big test

Seeing Novak Djokovic in the semi final of a Grand Slam is not exactly a huge shock.

If he lands the title at the US Open, he will become the all-time most successful Grand Slam champion.

He will edge past the Slam hauls of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

It’s been 20 Grand Slam titles for Novak Djokovic in his career, three of those happening at the US Open.

In the match outright for tennis betting Djokovic is the 2/5 odds-on favourite* (odds taken 17:12 GMT 9th September 2021 at Bet365).

Dropped sets put pressure on Djokovic

But this doesn’t look on paper, as being as cut and dry as the tennis betting odds suggest.

This has not been a smooth run to the Final Four at Flushing Meadows this year for Djokovic.

He has dropped a set in all but one of his five matches.

Djokovic has lost the opening set in each of his last three matches.

In the Quarter Finals, he had to fight back from that deficit against sixth seed Matteo Berrettini.

Our betting prediction:
Zverev To Win 1st Set

Bet at Bet365

* (odds taken 17:12 GMT 9th September 2021 at Bet365)


To his credit, despite the blips, in none of the fifteen sets that Djokovic has won at this year’s US Open, has he conceded more than three games.

In the head to head between Djokovic and Zverev, the former leads 6-3.

Their most recent meeting was in the semi finals of the Olympics, which Zverev won.

What made that win more remarkable, is that Djokovic had taken the first set in the match.

Djokovic did beat Zverev in four sets at this year’s Australian Open.

A Djokovic 3-1 set betting option is at a quote of 3/1* (odds taken 17:12 GMT 9th September 2021 at Bet365).

Friday will see the two meet for the first time at the US Open.


Alexander Zverev Preview – Zverev can pull off the upset?

Germany’s Alexander Zverev has brought some big form to the table this summer.

The highlight of that so far has been his Olympic Gold medal, claimed against Karen Khachanov.

Zverev is the Fourth Seed at the US Open as he looks to land his first Grand Slam title.

He has been untroubled through, having let only one set slip away from him.

That’s in stark contrast of course to the results that Djokovic has put together in his campaign.

There was a comfortable straight-set victory for Zverev over Lloyd Harris in the Quarter Finals.

Zverev is a quote of 2/1 in the match outright* (odds taken 17:12 GMT 9th September 2021 at Bet365).

He’s no forlorn hope.

It’s not just his current run at the US Open and that Olympic Gold.

Zverev also won the ATP Masters 1000 Cincinnati title last month.

Alexander Zverev beat three top eight seeds at the tournament to earn that title.

That’s now a 14-match winning streak that Zverev is currently on.

He’s right on top of his game at the moment and he reached the US Open final twelve months ago.

Zverev has strong claims.

He is a quote of 6/4 to take the first set which would set him up very nicely* (odds taken 17:12 GMT 9th September 2021 at Bet365).


Novak Djokovic vs Alexander Zverev Betting Advice

Alexander Zverev has to have a very strong chance in this semi-final match, even though he is taking on the best in the business.

Zverev will have confidence after beating Djokovic over three sets at the Olympics. Granted doing it over five is much, much tougher.

But the 6/4 tennis betting option Zverev taking the opening set is viable* (odds taken 17:12 GMT 9th September 2021 at Bet365)
