Jan-Lennard Struff will play against Novak Djokovic in the 1st round in the Australian Open and we got a Tennis forecast for that match. The game is on Monday, 20 January and will not start before 09:30 UK.
Jan-Lennard Struff world number 37 played for Germany in the ATP Cup. He lost his first match in the tournament against Nick Kyrgios 4-6, 6-7 but then won against Michail Pervolarakis 6-4, 6-1 and also beat Felix Auger Aliassime 6-1, 6-4. However, these two victories from Struff were not enough for his country to advance to the ¼ finals. Then Jan-Lennard decided to play in Adelaide where he won his first match against Salvatore Caruso 6-4, 6-2 but was eliminated in the 2nd round against Alex Bolt 3-6, 4-6.
His latest tournament on single last year was the Masters in Paris where the German beat his first opponent in the 1st round Yoshihito Nishioka 4-6, 7-5, 6-2. He also won his match in the 2nd round after 3 sets against Karen Khachanov 7-6, 3-6, 7-5. In the 3rd round, he was eliminated from Jo-Wilfried Tsonga after another match which finished after 3 sets – 6-2, 4-6, 6-7.
Novak Djokovic world number 2 started the new season in a perfectly possible way after helping his country Serbia to win the first-ever edition of the ATP Cup. Nole won all of his matches at the tournament on singles and also helped his team by playing on doubles. In the group stage, Djokovic won all of his games 2:0 sets against Kevin Anderson, Gael Monfils and Christian Garin.
He had a tough match in the ¼ finals against Denis Shapovalov but won it after a tiebreak in the final set. In the ½ finals, Novak again played 3 sets against Daniil Medvedev and beat the Russian 6-1, 5-7, 6-4. In the final, he faced world number 1 Rafael Nadal but the Serbian was the better player and won 2:0 sets – 6-2, 7-6. With this victory, he tied the series against Spain and 1 hour later Djokovic played with Viktor Troicki on doubles and they win against Pablo Carreno Busta and Feliciano Lopez.
Lennard Struff and Djokovic played twice and the Serbian won both of the matches. I expect the third victory for Nole who will be very positive after the victory in the ATP Cup. Tennis forecast: Novak Djokovic to win
