Musetti can defeat your idol, he was already very close to doing so when he was still a teenager and now he is physically better suited for a tough battle that could reach the decisive set.
I know you think your idol is not going to lose but don't be surprised if tomorrow there will be a big surprise in the tournament.
:D
Musetti is definitely worth a bet. You will get good odds bro!

I won't be surprised at all. In fact I am afraid of this match.
But this LANGUAGE, should beat someone, let's reserve it for finished players like Nadal for now.

Musetti has caused Djokovic problems in the past when Djokovic was close to his best so could be interesting this time around too. The thing Djokovic has going for him is even with his fall off this season he is still having a better one than Musetti who is poor this clay season

Djokovic 6-3, 7-5, 6-1. Musetti won't win 10 games. People are seriously underestimating Novak's level and desire here.
lol it’s TTW, a mix of Novak fans who are nervous and the rabid haters trying a voodoo jinx. Nothing to see. Mussetti has caused problems on this surface for a better version of Novak, and Novak hasnt looked this vulnerable in week 1 in a long time, so Mussetti has a realistic chase if he backs himself here. May the best man on the day win. I am rooting for Novak.

The Novak i saw yesterday shouldn't have to work too hard to dispatch Musetti but i have a sneaky suspicion it will be a lot closer than I'd like.

RCB has no weapon to harm opponents of ND's caliber.
It is no surprise that it encourages excessive euphoria in some fans in the face of resounding results in his favor.

I don’t see Djokovic having much of a problem with Musetti at all. What am I missing? Musetti has had a poor clay season; losing two challenger finals, one to someone ranked 240. He lost in the first round of Estoril, Barcelona, Madrid and Rome!
Looking better at RG but a threat to Djokovic right now? I don’t see it.

Musetti played very well against Monfils, Novak is a different story though. It depends a lot what version of Musetti shows up. If it's Gasquetti, Novak in 3. If it's the Musetti who wants to be aggressive and construct points with beautiful angles he has a chance.
 
Djokovic beat Musetti on clay already this year, as pointed out. No matter how many questions there are over his form, I will be surprised if he loses in BO5. Djoko in 3 or 4. Otherwise alarm bells will really be ringing.

Djokovic level is insane
Hes gonna keep winning slams in his 40s
More slams in his 40s than in his 30s? It is possible
Mussetti to be destroyed today 6-1 6-2 6-1

Alarm bells are ringing for Djokovic in 2024 already. So it is not new alarm.

He is getting better but rg he doesn't have much time to improve. So far smaller chance.

The funny thing is that you think im not taking any of that into account. And guess what, as much as i like Musetti's game he also doesn’t have weapons to hurt Novak either!

If Musetti wins I would hardly call it a massive surprise, given Novak's really sub par playing level for entire 2024 season.

I hope oval wins but even if he does he will struggle to teach semi finals or better.

If he plays well and say loses a tough quarter final then I will be not too unhappy as at least he will have played himself into some decent form for Wimbledon.

lol

He hits one of the biggest, heaviest balls on tour. Carballs doesn't do that

There's a reason Musetti went up 2-0 sets on Djoko at this tournament and it isn't because Djoko is a mug

LM is clearly red lining his game right now, can he maintain his level? Djokovic looks like he wants to play today also.
