Novak Djokovic Form
Novak Djokovic is on a 20-match winning streak both at Wimbledon and at Grand Slams in general after beating Denis Shapovalov in straight sets in the semifinals.
Djokovic was not even particularly good against Shapovalov and was still able to win 7-6 7-5 7-5. After going down a break in the first set, he saved the other 10 break points he faced, with his ability to get first serves back into play and force Shapovalov to hit one more ball both proving crucial.
Djokovic, now the second man in history to reach 30 Grand Slam finals, has never lost a Grand Slam final to a player who was playing their first. He has won seven of the last eight he has played and the last four he has played at Wimbledon.
Since losing his first set of Wimbledon to Jack Draper, Djokovic has won 21 consecutive sets.

Matteo Berrettini Form
Matteo Berrettini improved to 11-0 on grass in 2021 and 32-6 this season as a whole by beating Hubert Hurkacz to reach his first Grand Slam final.
Berrettini dropped a set to Hurkacz, just as he had done against Felix Auger-Aliassime in the quarterfinals, but otherwise was largely in control of a 6-3 6-0 6-7 6-4 victory. Berrettini’s booming serve and big forehand were both very effective and he protected his weaker backhand wing well.
Hurkacz was not very good for most of the match, however, and did not produce the same form he did to beat Roger Federer in the quarterfinals.
This will be Berrettini’s fifth match against a top-10 player at a Grand Slam. The Italian has lost all of them, two of them in straight sets.
Novak Djokovic and Matteo Berrettini meet in the Wimbledon final on Sunday 11 July.

Djokovic looks in control of his game and has an immense experience advantage over Berrettini. It is difficult to imagine the World no. 1 being pushed too hard.
Berrettini’s big serve should help him get a set, but Djokovic can expose the Italian’s weaker backhand and win his 20th Grand Slam.
