Juan Martin Del Potro vs. Novak Djokovic (2)

Although Novak Djokovic is not as dominant as he used to be in recent years, the Serbian is still a phenomenal athlete. Adding to this, playing in Rome is always special for Djokovic with the world no.2 winning 85.42% of the matches played throughout his career in the capital of Italy. Looking now at Novak’s campaign on this year’s edition, the four-time champion reaches this stage of the competition after two straight sets victories over Aljaz Bedene and Roberto Bautista Agut.

As we predicted in our ATP Rome tournament analysis, Juan Martin Del Potro proved to be a terrific investment throughout the tournament. After covering his -1.5 Set Handicap against Kyle Edmund in the 2nd round, Del Potro grabbed his first win in 2017 over a top 10 opponent – Kei Nishikori – in the following round. Despite his outstanding run in Rome, it won’t be easy for the 2009 US Open champion to extend his streak on this event. Due to the death of his grandfather two weeks ago, the Argentinean spent two weeks away from competition. Besides his lack of competitive rhythm in recent weeks, we have to go back to October 2013 to see Del Potro winning four matches in the same week on a Masters 1000 event.

This will be the 18th career meeting between these two players with Djokovic leading by 13 – 4 on the h2h.

Despite Del Potro’s outstanding performances this week, Djokovic should be too strong for the Argentinean. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Novak’s tennis betting odds by adding the Serbian’s spread to your betting picks.
