Novak Djokovic vs Frances Tiafoe Predictions


Djokovic increased his winning streak at the Australian Open to 15 matches with a dominant win over Chardy. He is strongly favoured to give Tiafoe the same treatment.

Tiafoe has been a top-30 player but he has a poor record against top players. He lacks the weapons to give Djokovic a sustained test.

  • Djokovic hit 41 winners and only 11 unforced errors against Chardy
  • The world no. 1 improved to 76-8 at the Australian Open
  • Tiafoe is only 3-18 vs top-10 players and has lost the last eight
  • The American won only 45% of his second-serve points in his last match

Head to Head


This will be the first match between Novak Djokovic and Frances Tiafoe.

Novak Djokovic Form


Djokovic was the top favourite to win the Australian Open this year and his first-round performance against Jeremy Chardy did nothing to change that.

Chardy had lost all 13 previous matches against Djokovic without getting a set. The Frenchman was totally outplayed on Monday as Djokovic hit 41 winners for just 11 unforced errors and won an incredible 79% of his second-serve points. Djokovic did not face a single break point throughout the 91-minute match.

Djokovic is now on a 15-match winning streak at the Australian Open and has won all three of the singles matches he has played in 2021.

Frances Tiafoe Form


Tiafoe reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open in 2019, which was the last time he beat a top-10 player.

The American’s ranking dropped out of the last 50 in 2020. Tiafoe’s best result during last season was reaching the last 16 at the US Open, but he did not face a seeded player.

A quarterfinalist at Delray Beach in January, Tiafoe had not beaten a top-100 player in 2021 coming into the Australian Open. 

Against Italy’s Stefano Travaglia, who was fatigued after reaching the final of the Great Ocean Road Open last week, Tiafoe scored a straight-sets win. However he was still broken four times.
