ATP H2H: 8-2 for Djokovic
Hard surface H2H: 7-2 for Djokovic
Djoker wins last five mutual matches. For Isner, this match is the first match at the ATP Finals.
I give Djoker a 95% chance of ending up in the semis and a 80% chance of walking away with the title.
Djoker 6-4, 7-6 over Isner
Djoker 6-2, 6-3 over Zverev
Djoker 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 over Cilic
Djokovic 6-4, 6-3 over Thiem
Djokovic 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 over Federer
Isner in two sets because Novak absolutely loathes big servers, or so I've heard.
He doesn't have to. All it takes is an error in a tiebreak. That said, my heart wants Isner to win, but my brain says Djokovic. I think Isner takes the 1st set and loses in three.Novak just needs to break him once and the set is over. I just don't see how a serve-bot can break Djokovic in this match.
