Novak Djokovic vs. Jannik Sinner Pick – Wimbledon July 5, 2022

The quarterfinals at Wimbledon opens on Tuesday with the favorite in action on Centre Court.

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic take turns in the spotlight, with Nadal winning yesterday and Djokovic due up this afternoon in the quarters. As we get into the quarterfinals, this is when the best are separated from the rest.

Nadal made easy work of Botic van de Zandschulp with a straight-set victory. He won 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (8-6) for a fairly easy stroll in the park at Wimbledon.

Rafa and Djokovic appear to be on a collision course for a rematch after Nadal won at Roland Garros in the most recent Grand Slam.

Nadal beat Djokovic on the clay, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (7-4). He’s the king of the clay, so it wasn’t the most surprising win. However, Nadal wasn’t going into the French Open with a healthy ankle. That made Nadal’s French Open title all the more impressive.

He’s hinted at retiring soon, but I don’t know if he packs up his racket and ball anytime soon in this form. Another year or two probably seems about right for Nadal, though if he wants to finish on top playing this well, then that’s understandable.

Djokovic meets Italian Jannik Sinner on Centre Court this afternoon.

Sinner is coming off an impressive effort against Carlos Alcaraz. Sinner beat Alcaraz in four sets in the biggest upset on the men’s side at Wimbledon.

Alcaraz is a talented player, but the 19-year-old has some growing to do before winning Grand Slams consistently. He’ll get there eventually.

Credit Sinner for winning after an impressive win against the monster serve of John Isner. Isner had 24 aces compared to just 2 for Sinner, and it was still a straight-set match.

Djokovic vs. Sinner Prediction:

Jannik Sinner must bring a clean performance to Centre Court on Tuesday. It’s imperative that he doesn’t commit many unforced errors. That’s going to be the way to beat Djokovic.

Okay, more is going to be required, but Sinner can’t give Djokovic free points away.

The good news for Sinner is that he is playing some of his best tennis of the year after beating Alcaraz. His straight-set win over Isner was a good performance, but the only asset Isner has is his serve.

Isner is one-dimensional and Sinner was able to exploit the holes in his game.

The win over Alcaraz was a complete effort from Sinner. He did everything needed for a 6-1, 6-4, 6-7 (10-8), 6-3 win. Alcaraz withdrew from the Queen’s Club a few weeks ago because of an elbow injury, but he didn’t bring any problems up during Wimbledon.

Djokovic extinquished Tim van Rijthoven in four sets last round.

Van Rijthoven won a set, but didn’t come close in the others for a 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 final. He was the underdog story of Wimbledon. After beating Daniil Medvedev and winning an ATP title in his home country in the Netherlands, he was budding with confidence.

Djokovic put an end to the fun for van Rijthoven, carrying over from his dominant showing vs Miomir Kecmanovic in straight sets, 6-0, 6-3, 6-4.

Djokovic and Sinner played last year at the ATP Masters 1000 Monte Carlo. The Serb had an easy time in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2. Sinner might steal a set in this one, but as in the van Rijthoven match, Djokovic should be too smart.

Sinner must have more aces if he’s going to beat Djokovic. He’s only had six in his past two matches. This won’t be competitive if Sinner doesn’t have a better service game. I will roll with Djokovic to win and cover in the quarterfinals.
