Novak Djokovic made light work of his opening match of the 2020 ATP World Tour Finals as he crushed Diego Schwartzman.

The challenge gets a little stiffer for the world number one as he faces Daniil Medvedev on Wednesday in the second round-robin match.

The Russian also collected a win in his opening match, beating Alexander Zverev in straight sets.

Novak Djokovic Preview – Djokovic delivers an impressive win

Coming into the ATP World Tour Finals, Novak Djokovic was the favourite to take the title in the tennis betting outright.

He strengthened those claims by powering past debutant Diego Schwartzman in his first round robin match in London.

Djokovic was untroubled through the fixture and he lines up as the 4/9 odds-on favourite to follow up with a win on Wednesday as well* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).

Ahead of the ATP World Tour finals, Djokovic had only suffered three defeats in his 42 matches played in 2020.

It’s a staggering record but two of those losses happened in the last two tournaments he played in.

Djokovic lost in the final of the French Open to Rafa Nadal and then to Lorenzo Sonego in the quarter finals of Austria.

It means that Djokvoci missed out on the top action at the ATP Paris Masters last week because there were no ranking points on offer.

Our betting prediction:
Medvedev 2.5 Games Handicap

(odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November)


Now onto the Djokovic v Medvedev head to head for tennis betting on Wednesday.

Djokovic leads the way 4-2 from their six previous meetings. The most recent meeting happened this year at the ATP Cup in January.

Djokovic won that in three sets. That was after having lost back to back matches against Medvedev last year in ATP Masters 1000 events.

So he has had trouble or two against the Russian in the past.

However, a Djokovic 2-0 in set betting is at 11/10* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).


Daniil Medvedev Preview – Can the Russian bring down Djokovic

Last year on his debut at the ATP World Tour Finals, Daniil Medvedev had a harrowing experience, losing all three of his round robin matches.

He’s turned that around already this year having beaten Alexander Zverev in his opening match.

It was an impressive straight-sets victory that the Russian took and he is not to be totally dismissed from this match.

The bookmakers have him at 7/4 in tennis betting to collect the victory* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).

Having won two for the last three meetings with Djokovic and having taken the Serbian to a deciding set in the loss in that sequence, punters may see value there.

Medvedev arrived in London with some form behind him as well having won the Paris Masters last weekend.

That was a victory over Zverev that got the Russian the title there.

Daniil Medvedev does pose a significant threat in this one we fee.

The shortest price option in the set betting market for a win for Medvedev is a 2-0 option at 7/2* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).

We think that’s far too risky against the world number one regardless, and a more sensible option would be to look to the games handicap market.

For tennis betting there a Medvedev +2.5 option is at 21/20 and worth looking at, we feel. He looks in a confident mood to take on the best in the world.


Novak Djokovic vs Daniil Medvedev Betting Advice

We do see Djokvoic coming away with the win in this one. He has been in such terrific form this season overall.

He had a nice easy opener as well to get warm up ahead of this sterner challenge against Medvedev.

Djokovic was on cruise control in his opener. A 2-0 set betting option in his favor offers the most value to back him with.

That is a tennis betting option at 11/10* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).


Key Facts – Novak Djokovic vs Daniil Medvedev Betting Tip

  • Novak Djokovic beat Diego Schwartzman in his opening group match
  • Novak Djokovic beat Medvedev in the one meeting this year
  • Daniil Medvedev has won 2 of the last 3 against Djokovic


That is not taking anything away from the challenge of Medvedev who is clearly in good spirits at the moment.

He is one of the players around outside of the big four and we would still expect to see him qualify from the group.

It probably won’t be with a win over Djokovic however. But still, we like the +2.5 handicap on him at 10/11* (odds taken 03:00 GMT Tuesday, 17th November).
