Tennis tips and betting predictions. Roger Federer vs Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open semifinal
Despite 100 errors against Gilles Simon and unimpressive play against Andreas Seppi, Novak Djokovic is undefeated on this season, which has been proved in the match against Kei Nishikori. In the upcoming affair with Roger Federer, Novak should be fully focused and display his best tennis. Last year Novak lost three matches to the Swiss (we don’t take the World Tour Finals into account, as then Djokovic knew he would have a lifeline in Britain’s capital even if he lost). Another two matches passed in a very interesting manner. Roger was worn-out by the end of the second set in Dubai but claimed victory in straight sets, while in the Cincinnati final the Serb was under the weather after the tough week in Montreal.
Roger Federer presses his luck too much at this event making too many risky decisions. His easy progress to the semifinal stage is attributed to the favorable draw mainly. Only Grigor Dimitrov was a bit of a challenge for the Swiss. What we want to mention is not the best backhand wing play. Suddenly Roger produces too many mistakes and Djokovic will definitely apply pressure on it. Considering their 2015 rivalry, Roger was toppled by the Swiss at all major events: London Finals, the US Open and even Wimbledon, where Roger boasted really great chances for the title. So this time Novak Djokovic is a clear favorite for the upcoming semis.
The only possible winning scenario for Roger can happen if he manages to bring his first serve percentage next to perfection (70% and over). In this case, he can try to win the first two sets to have a rest in the third one and outplay in the fourth. But it sounds so much of a fairytale! Shall Roger lose one of two first sets, the struggle will get useless.
Betting tips: it makes sense to bet on Djokovic at the negative handicap. The only dangerous aspect is the Swiss service play. Shall Federer win a set, the handicap may be under the threat.
