Carlos Alcaraz vs Novak Djokovic Tennis Prediction
- Title : Carlos Alcaraz vs Novak Djokovic Tennis Prediction
Alcaraz is the best player at the moment. Can Djokovic defeat him in the French Open semifinal?
Carlos Alcaraz recently has moved to the top of the ATP rankings.
The 20-year-old has a 35-3 record for the season and 25-2 on clay. He has won 4 titles this season.
On his way to the semifinals, Alcaraz lost only one set to Taro Daniel in the second round. He is coming off a dominant 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 win over Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinal.
Novak Djokovic is third in the rankings.
The Serbian is 25-4 for the season and 10-3 on clay this season. He has won 2 titles this season.
Just like Alcaraz, Djokovic lost only one set on his way to the semis and that was in the quarterfinal against Karen Khachanov - 4-6, 7-6, 6-2, 6-4.
Alcaraz has won the only previous match against Djokovic - 6-7, 7-5, 7-6 in Madrid in 2022
Alcaraz has one Grand Slam title, Djokovic has 22
Alcaraz is 128-30 all time on clay, Djokovic is 329-74
This is the final before the final and it is safe to say that whoever wins this match will win the title at the end. Alcaraz is taking over the tennis world but he will face the player who is going after a record 23rd Grand Slam title. It will definitely be a tough match and if anybody can beat Alcaraz at the moment, it is Djokovic. Novak knows how to play big matches on Grand Slams and can adapt to anybody's game. Still, that doesn't guarantee him a win in this match so I am going with Novak winning at least 2 sets for good odds of 1.77.
