Your way to Australian Open Djokovic starts the match with Kruger. In the main round Mitchell broke through with the training. Will it help Americans? – read our forecast.
Djokovic played an excellent end of last season, winning the US Open and the Masters in Cincinnati and Shanghai. Because of this, he regained first place in the world rankings.
This season, Novak started not the best way. In Doha, he couldn’t show his best game. Surely the Serb won only Damira of Jumhur (6-1, 6-2). But Marton Vucovich and Nikoloz Basilashvili he lost one set. Moreover, in the semi-final the representative of Serbia lost to Roberto Bautista-Agut.
Last year Djokovic at the AO flew in the fourth round, losing to the Korean Chono.
Kruger has never reached the top 100 of the ATP ranking. His best result is the 169th position. However, now it is only 231 th place world ranking. He mostly plays on different challengers. Getting into the main round of Grand Slam is already a great success for him.
In the 1/64 of the final American made their way through the qualification. There he beat Italian gajo, the Spaniard Menendez-Maceiras and Argentine Troncelliti. All these victories Kruger got in three sets.
Mitchell is not the first time out in the main round of Grand Slam tournament. Last year he played in 1/64 finals of the U.S. Open. But then he lost to Spaniard Carballes-Baena in four games.
Statistics and personal meetings
- Between them these players have never played. This will be their first personal meeting.
- In my entire career, Djokovic won 460 of 548 matches on hard. Kruger scored 169 victories in 305 games.
For a long time in the first round Australian Open Djokovic was not playing against such a weak opponent. Last year was Donald young. Then Novak gave him 7 games. Level Kruger is even lower young. Such an opponent, the Serb needs to win very confident.
You need to keep power, as in the second round against Djokovic may fall Tsonga. In this regard, we believe that more than eight games, Kruger will not be able to win.
