Novak Djokovic will attempt to win his 5th Dubai Duty Free Championship when he takes on Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final on Saturday. Tsitsipas was a finalist in Dubai in 2019 and will want to go one better in what is expected to be a closely fought encounter.

Novak Djokovic Form


Novak Djokovic hardly broke a sweat in the opening three rounds of the Dubai Duty Free Championships. Malek Jaziri was taken care of 6-1, 6-2 before Djokovic beat Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 6-1.

Karen Khachanov was expected to be a challenge in the third round but he was taken apart by Djokovic 6-2, 6-2. After reaching the semi final with comfort Novak Djokovic came up against the in-form Gael Monfils and had to save three match points in the second send to eventually win 2-6, 7-6, 6-1.

Djokovic is certainly not invincible, as Monfils showed and Stefanos Tsitsipas has upset the odds twice against him before. In the end I think Djokovic will come out on top in three sets.

Stefanos Tsitsipas Form


Stefanos cruised through the opening two rounds of the Dubai Duty Free Championships, first beating Pablo Carreno Busta 7-6, 6-1 before seeing off Alexander Bublik 7-6, 6-4. His third round victory over Jan Lennard-Struff was slightly tougher but Tsitsipas prevailed 4-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Dan Evans huffed and puffed at in the semi final but Tsitsipas had too much class once again as he cruised to a 6-2, 6-3 victory. This secured Stefanos Tsitsipas’ second consecutive final at the Dubay Duty Free Championships after finishing as runner-up to Roger Federer in 2019.

Tsitsipas has already beaten Novak Djokovic twice in their four meetings has certainly has the all-round game to trouble the world No. 1. I expect his match to go over 21.5 games at 1.72 with both players claiming at least a set.

Novak Djokovic vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Match Up


Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of very few players that Novak Djokovic hasn’t got a dominant win record over. Among the up and coming players on the ATP Tour Tsitsipas is probably the brightest prospect at only 21 years of age. His powerful forehand and dominant serve should ensure a tight encounter against the Serb.

We should be in for a match with long rallies as both players are accustomed to toughing it out, rather than searching for early winners. The experience Djokovic has in finals could see him gain the upper hand but this could go the distance.
