Ok,
Here we go.

This is the pair's 10th meeting, 5th in the final (Djokovic leads 4-0), 5th on hard court (equal at 2-2).

While their h2h is 2-2 on HC, Djokovic is on a 6 match winning streak against the Greek; namely 2019 Paris masters semi (61 62), 2020 Dubai final (63 64), 2020 RG SF (63 62 57 46 61), 2021 Rome masters quarters (46 75 75), 2021 RG F (67 26 63 62 64), 2022 Rome masters final (60 76).

Tsistsipas's last win vs the Serb was 3 years ago in Shanghai 2019 QF (36 75 63).

In the 4 finals before, Tsitsipas has failed to take a set in 3 of them, Madrid 2019, Dubai 2020 & Rome 2022, and also failed to break Novak even once in the Dubai & Madrid finals, and failed to even have a break point in the Madrid final. :-D

How do you think the match goes?
Djokovic is favourite on paper but Tsitsipas is showing some signs of getting back to good form.


Edit (after the match was over) :- It was yet another display of utter domination by Novak Djokovic, who destroyed Stefanos Tsitsipas 63 64, without dropping his serve even once or even facing a single break point; remarkably, only one service game of the Serb went to deuce & that was the last game of the match. This was 3rd such final between the pair when Djokovic won by this scoreline without being broken & 2nd such final when he didn't even face a break point.

Remarkable dominance of the Greek youngster by the veteran Djokovic after what looked like a very neck-to-neck tight matchup after the remarkable victory of Tsitsipas over the Serb at Shanghai 2019, one of the best masters event for Novak.

I see a 3 setter. Both playing well and also very good indoor players. Let’s hope for a cracker!
Apart from the series of brilliant performances at ATP finals 2019, Tsitsipas has yet to prove himself on indoor courts, gentleman. The surface does not suit his game that much, especially given his decline in explosiveness since 2019 itself.

Djokovic in straights.
I'm leaning towards a good 3 setter, with Nole prevailing at the end. Even after a bagel, their Rome final this year could be a 3 setter if Tsitsipas had converted the game at 4-1 or served out at 5-3 in set2. That was even after the fact that Stefanos played poor tennis all week and was extremely fatigued by the end, while Nole was playing his best clay court tennis since 2019.

Novak will win, but Tsitsipas really needs this win for so many reasons.
He hasn't won against Djoko in almost three years and he still hasn't won a 500 final. He needs to grow up and win it or his mentality will regress even more against Novak.

Novak, more than anyone else on tour, seems to have already won against Stefanos before they even set a foot on the court, these past three years.

Tsitsipas has won 9 titles, 4 of them on indoor hard.

He's got game.

He'll make it hard for Djokovic.

I have Djoko in 3 though.

Tsitsipas has terrible stats in finals of ATP 500. Isn't it something like 0/8?
And except in Monte Carlo, he loses most big finals in general. He just lost 2 Masters1000 final in straight sets in Rome and Cincinnati.
I didn't watch his matches this week, but I see he beat Hurkacz and Rublev. He must like the slow indoors surface. He won WTF in 2019 on a similar court.

Even if Djokovic almost lost today, the level of the match was very high. He hasn't lost a match since Nadal in RG. And he won the only hard court indoors match against Tsitsipas in Paris 2019, 6-1 6-2. Can't see him losing this one, though I expect a close match. 2 close sets with a tie-break.

I think the most important factor will be Djokovic's return. He did not do a great job against Medvedev

But we'll see, I expect Novak to win in a close match

Can’t see how Tsitsipas even wins a set to be honest. He needs to show something that he’s not shown all tournament to have a chance.

Tsitsipas needs this win badly. He has been losing too many finals and beating Djokovic could change things for him going forward. But I just don't think he is at good enough form to take down Djoko.

If Djokovic wins, he is locked in for the WTF.... That is quite a motivation, if he ever needed one..

Tsitsipas isn't playing bad, but he just doesn't have it in him.

Are you watching? He literally had a meltdown and blasted his fhs out to let Novak break him.

He's won 3 points on Novak's serve...

No wonder you guys think Roddick was a tough opponent...
