Doesn't matter, Hes burned out and has a hellish road ahead. If he loses the 2nd set, he won't even win this match. If he does come back from 2 sets down somehow, you still got more rest Zverev/Med waiting on you
What's Berrettini's biggest win at a slam? We still don't know how he'll react to being favoured against a top guy.

He has also never beaten a big 3.

Staying on serve is like losing for Novak in this match. His tb record vs youngsters is horrendous. If he can't break then it was always going to be over.

I will be honest, logically if Djokovic plays like this, Zverev in his current form will beat him easy.

But Djokovic never follows logic rather defies it. So count him out at your own risk.
It will be accumulated fatigue that gets to him. He will play a younger opponent next round who has had less time on court.

He will give everything he has for the big goal, even if he'll only return to tennis in Australia. And Medvedev isn't beating him anyway.

Matteo was playing at his A level just to barely win set 1. It was possible but unlikely that would continue.
