Novak Djokovic will meet Gael Monfils for the 18th time in his career at Dubai ATP 500.
Both players arrive here in top form, with Monfils on a 12-game winning streak and Novak on a 16-match winning streak. Even though the Serbian is the favourite for this matchup, Gael will try to do something he's never done in his career. Get a win over the World’s No. 1. Djokovic is looking invincible at the moment, dispatching everyone that’s on the other side of the net here at Dubai, in straight sets. It’s hard to imagine him losing to any player, given the way he’s playing, and a win here could mean staying on top of the rankings.
On the other hand, the Frenchman has also been playing incredible tennis. He destroyed Richard Gasquet on his previous match, to guarantee his place on the Semi-Finals. But now, he’ll have an hard task against the best player in the World. He hasn’t netted a single win over Djokovic in his entire career, and today could be one of the best chances he has to do it, given his superb play recently. All in all it’s expected to be a very competitive match.
While Novak Djokovic is the favourite for this match, I’m expecting Monfils to make it competitive at the very least. The Over on total games for the Frenchman is a good pick.
