Tournament favourite Novak Djokovic gets his ATP World Tour Finals coming up and running on Monday.

Schwartzman will be making his ATP Finals debut in this match.

Novak Djokovic Preview – Djokovic long odds-on favorite for opener

Here comes Novak Djokvic who has won the ATP Finals five times before. Taking the title this year will see him equal Roger Federer’s record haul.

Twice already this year Novak Djokovic has met Diego Schwartzman and the Serbian great has prevailed in both meetings.

That has taken his overall head to head record against Schwartzman to 5-0.

The most recent that had was at the ATP Masters 1000 Rome with Djokovic winning in straight sets.

The last two wins that Djokovic has taken against Schwartzman have been in straight sets, so that’s not a bad tennis betting trend to consider for Monday.

A Djokovic 2-0 set betting option is at 4/9 odds-on* (odds taken 21:29 GMT on Sunday, 15th November).

With Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev still to come in the round robin group, this should be Djokovic’s easiest match.

So it could be a nice fixture for him to break into proceedings as he looks for his first ATP Finals title since 2015.

Last year Djokovic had a shock exit in the round robin stage.

Our betting prediction:
Djokovic 6-3 First Set Score

Bet at Unibet

(odds taken 21:29 GMT on Sunday, 15th November)


The form of Djokovic this year has been astonishing. He has lost only three of 42 matches played in 2020.

He was the hot ticket when the season resumed, although he closed out the campaign with only the one Grand Slam title from the Australian Open at the start of the year.

But for the large part, he was unplayable over the second part of the season.

So he is the tournament outright in ATP World Tour Finals tennis betting.

We do see him breezing through this one to some extent and a Djokovic -4.5 handicap is at 8/13 to consider for tennis betting* (odds taken 21:29 GMT on Sunday, 15th November).

He has that proven form going against Schwartzman


Diego Schwartzman Preview – Can Schwartzman pull off an upset?

This is the debut appearance in the ATP Finals for Argentina’s Diego Schwartzman. He couldn’t have gotten a tougher match to open with.

Schwartzman is the 9/2 underdog in the match outright for Monday* (odds taken 21:29 GMT on Sunday, 15th November).

The big moment of the season for Schwartzman happened at the French Open when he reached the semi finals.

That was the first time ever in the final four of a Grand Slam tournament for him.

Schwartzman has only played one tournament since that Roland Garros effort (which was ended by Rafael Nadal).

There was a quarter final finish for Schwartzman at the Paris Masters, losing heavily there to Daniil Medvedev.

This is, obviously, a bit of an uphill task for the Argentinean , who was the last player to qualify for the Finals.

Diego Schwartzman can take some heart from a run to the final of Cologne this season, an indoor tournament.

Schwartzman’s game is more naturally fit for the clay, and he is not going to have the same counterpunching ability indoors.

Going up against Djokovic, who is the king of breaking serve indoors, we don’t see Schwartzman getting on the board.


Novak Djokovic vs Diego Schwartzman Betting Advice

Djokovic generally carries a huge threat indoors where the bounce is lower so more speed is generated.

That also means that players can’t generate as much bounce against him, leaving Djokovic to get returns and redirects over the net.

We see the 2-0 option in tennis betting for Djokovic as the simplest, most straight forward option to take in this fixture.

Again, that is a 4/9 option* (odds taken 21:29 GMT on Sunday, 15th November).


Key Facts – Novak Djokovic vs Diego Schwartzman Betting Tip

  • Novak Djokovic has won all five previous matches against Schwartzman
  • Novak Djokovic is a five-time winner of the ATP World Tour Finals
  • Diego Schwartzman is making his ATP Finals debut


Djokovic has won his last two matches against Schwartzman without dropping a set and we see that trend continuing.

One of those wins was in the Final of Rome just before the French Open.

There will be bigger challenges for Djokovic down the line and we think he kicks this off with a comfortable first set victory.

The Serbian is so good indoors at breaking serve, we are going with a  Djokovic 6-3 First Set score option for extended odds of 7/2* (odds taken 21:29 GMT on Sunday, 15th November).
