Djokovic the star attraction in Dubai

Five-time Dubai winner Novak Djokovic makes his return to action after his success in Melbourne at this year’s Australian Open. In total it is a 13-0 match record that Djokovic has recorded this season in singles matches.

He is back at the top of the world rankings and this is a draw in which it would be a huge surprise if he didn’t land in the final.

The highest-seeded opponent in his quarter is 7th seed Karen Khachanov who he could meet in the final eight.

Djokovic is the 8/15 odds-on favourite for this Dubai title* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on February 23rd, 2020 at 23:11)

Tsitsipas Outright

William Hill

Tsitsipas returns to form

Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas finally found his footing for the 2020 season. After some disappointing results for 2020, just as he did last year, he kicked into life in Marseille.

Tsitsipas successfully secured a title defence on the Mediterranean coast over the weekend. He didn’t drop a set on his way to the title, beating young Canadian star Felix Auger-Aliassime in the final.

Tsitsipas is in the opposite half of the Dubai draw to Djokovic and is the 17/2 second-favourite* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on February 23rd, 2020 at 23:11). Tsitsipas reached the Dubai final last year where he was beaten by Roger Federer.

Gael Monfils

Gael Monfils was a losing semi-finalist in Dubai twelve months ago against Tsitsipas. The Frenchman has been in superb form recently, collecting the title in the Open Sud de France. Monfils then was back out in action the following week, claiming a title defence at the World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam.

So he is resurgent at the moment, with both of those titles were at indoor hard court events. He goes in the second quarter in Dubai.

Problematically that would project him through to a semi-final against Djokovic. Monfils is at 14/1 for the Dubai title* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on February 23rd, 2020 at 23:11).

Can Dan Evans produce in Dubai?

Britain’s Dan Evans was a losing quarter-finalist in Rotterdam recently, where he was beaten by eventual winner Gael Monfils. In that tournament though, Evans had taken a win over Russia Next Gen star Karen Khachanov.

He opens in Dubai against Fabio Fognini in the third quarter. But it is Andrey Rublev who is the favourite to win the third quarter.

The Russian beat Evans back in Adelaide earlier in the year. Rublev was a losing quarter-finalist in Rotterdam and goes as an 11/1 shot in this Dubai tournament* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on February 23rd, 2020 at 23:11).

Predictions & Tips

How do you look past Novak Djokovic for the title? We certainly can’t as he is head and shoulders above the rest of the field here.

There is reason enough to suggest that a Djokovic v Tsitsipas final is on the cards. Interestingly the head to head between them is a two wins each.

The two big outsiders beyond the big two would be Gael Monfils who has produced some great form recently and youngster Andrey Rublev.
