Djokovic - Jumhur: will Serb continue his winning streak?
31/08/2020, at 23:00 GTM
USA. US Open
In face-to-face meetings, the score is 2-0 in favor of Djokovic.
In two personal fights, Novak did not give the Bosnian more than three games.
This season Djokovic won 24 matches on hard. Jumhur has won four.
Despite all his neck problems, Djokovic still managed to win the Masters in New York. But not all fights in this tournament were easy for the Serb. It was especially hard for Novak in the last two. At first, Roberto Bautista-Agut had every chance to create a sensation, but at the decisive moment the Spaniard's hand trembled (4-6, 6-4, 7-6) and then Milos Raonic did the same in the final. The Canadian defeated the first racket of the world, in the debut set, with a score of 6-1 and it seemed that nothing would save Djokovic. Nevertheless, the Balkan managed to turn the tide of the meeting and won next two games.
In 2019, Novak was eliminated here in the fourth round. Now the main task of the Serb is to win his next Grand Slam title.

After a successful 2017 for himself, when Jumhur was ranked 23-rd in the ATP ranking, the Bosnian's game experienced a big regression. With each fight Damir plays worse and continues to fall. At the moment, the representative of Bosnia is in 109-th place, but his fall will not end there, probably.
On the ground, Jumhur is still performing more or less successfully. But on faster surfaces, he does not succeed. For example, last week he tried to qualify for Cincinnati, but lost in the first round to Denis Novak (7-5, 1-6, 4-6).
Djokovic will have a long tournament distance. It is important for him to distribute correctly his forces, because he will play after Cincinnati. In this case, it is unlikely that he will drag out the meeting. Most likely, the Serb will try to deal with the opponent as quickly as possible.
Given the history of face-to-face meetings, we doubt that Jumhur will create problems for the favorite. Most likely, everything will end very quickly in three sets and the Bosnian will not even make it to the tie-break.
Our prediction - Djokovic's individual total is less than 18.5 games for the odds of 1.55 in BK Parimatch
