Betting on the Daniil Medvedev (-102 to win)
Daniil Medvedev couldn’t be stopped. The 25-year-old Russian’s form has been impeccable for quite some time now. After beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semifinals of the 2021 Australian Open men’s singles tournament, Medvedev has successfully extended his unbeaten streak to 20 matches, dating back to his win at the Paris Masters way back in November. Medvedev had not gone past the Round of 16 in the Australian Open before this year, but after making it all the way into the semifinals of the 2020 US Open, it appeared that it’s just a matter of time before he also makes loud noises in Melbourne. Medvedev is definitely no stranger to facing Djokovic, and unlike most other players, Medvedev’s head-to-head series against the Serbian isn’t a lopsided one. In fact, Medvedev has three wins in seven meetings with Djokovic and even won the last eon at the ATP World Tour Finals last year. Medvedev leads the Australian Open men’s singles field with 35 breakpoints won
Betting on the Novak Djokovic (-118 to win)
Down Under. Djokovic sent Karatsev packing in a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 win. The three-set victory saved Djokovic some energy following a four-setter win over Milos Raonic in the fourth round and a five-setter against Alexander Zverev in the quarterfinals. Expect Djokovic to come out hot in the first set of his finals match against Medvedev. Djokovic has won the first set in 11 of his last 13 appearances in Grand Slam finals matches. However, Djokovic has lost the first set in three of his eight appearances in the Australian Open finals. It didn’t matter much, though, as he still went 3-0 in those matches. Djokovic owns a 91 percent success rate in the Australian Open where he’s 81-8 all-time. Djokovic defeated Medvedev in the Round of 16 of the 2019 Australian Open, 6-4 6-7(5) 6-2 6-3
Daniil Medvedev takes down Novak Djokovic in a thrilling five-set victory.
