Date: on the 30th of May, 2019 (Monday)
Match start: 10:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Roland Garros. France.
On the 30th of May the world number one will again try to rush over the opponent, this time Henri Laaksonen and we have prepared the prediction for this match. What should we wait for?
The Serbian is spending this season at the high level as he has managed to become the winner of Major in Australia and then Novak has taken the main trophy on Masters in Madrid. He didn’t succeed to repeat the same success in Rome as Rafael Nadal came on his way.
Djokovic began Roland Garros with the convincing victory over Hubert Hurkacz.
The Pole didn’t withstand pressure and took only six games (6-4, 6-2, 6-2). The world number one is aimed to fight for the title, but there is the high probability that the 32-year-old tennis player will meet “the King of clay”.
The Swiss has got to the main bracket of Roland Garros being the Lucky loser, however it makes him more dangerous as the 27-year-old tennis player has nothing to lose.
In the previous prediction, Laaksonen didn’t leave the slightest chance to Pedro Martinez though the Spaniard was obviously lower in class (6-1, 6-0, 7-6). Henri understands that Djokovic will dominate on court but he is in the best form than the previous opponent of Novak, therefore, he is capable to surprise the Serbian.
In this round, Djokovic has spent 14 matches on clay and got 12 wins.
During the previous meeting, Novak has made six of nine breakpoints.
In the first round of Roland Garros Laaksonen made seven aces and two double mistakes.
Novak Djokovic has easily passed the previous opponent but we assume that in the second round the Serbian will slow a little bit and there are good reasons for this as Henri Laaksonen is in quite good form, therefore, we offer the handicap (+) on the world number 104th.
