Djokovic’s minefield draw begins here. Hurcakz has tailor made game for grass. Huge serve and very good at net. Just check their match 2 or 3 years back. It was extremely tight 3 setter with 2 tie breaks or so. Hurkacz can create a lot of problems . Novak can’t afford to lose mid-match focus against this kind of a player.
I still expect Novak to take this in 4 with 2 extremely tightly fought sets. Let’s see what happens. Real test begins now.
Should he overcome Hurkacz and Bublik, he should be battle hardened and ready to take Sinner. It’s a toss up going forward and anyone can take Novak out on their day. His draw is as much a minefield like Alcaraz’s is.
HH should work on his return. I know Novak served great, but HH should have at least put his racket on half of these aces and try more seriously to get into the return games.
He has such a wingspan to help him…
