20-00 – Djokovic v Federer
Rankings are 3 and 2. Head to heads are 10-5 to Federer. Fed won their last match last month in 3 sets.
Federer hasn’t lost a set so far and Djokovic lost 2 sets in the first round but no more since.
Over the last month Federer has held serve 94% of the time compare to Djokovic’s 84%. Djokovic has better stats while receiving serve and converts more break point chances.
Federer is probably playing better than he has for a while which is saying something. I’d expect him to deal well with the windy conditions.
Its not often his price is high enough for backing him on serve but it is today. Djokovic may take a set but a straight sets win is more likely.
Djokovic hasn’t been happy with his serving and if his first serve falters, expect Federer to return the second serrve very aggressively.
