Djoković vs. Sinner Prediction on January 26, 2024

Match info

The men’s tennis Grand Slam Australian Open 2024 semifinal featuring top seed Novak Djoković and fourth seed Jannik Sinner is sure to be exciting. This match will take place at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Victoria, on Friday, January 26, at noon local time.

Meeting statistics

Djoković and Sinner will rematch in the AO 2024 semifinals, following some amazing duels they put up last autumn. Djoković is ahead in their head-to-head series 4-2 and is a big favorite among bookmakers with iOS apps that notify of offers, bonus points, etc. although Sinner has prevailed in the last two meetings. In the Nitto ATP Finals round-robin, the Italian won 7-5, 6-7(5), 7-6(2). Five days later, he lost the championship match 3-6, 3-6, but then, he stunned Djoković 6-2, 2-6, 7-5 from triple-match point down and guided his team past Serbia to win the Davis Cup.

What can we expect as an encore from the next chapter? The matchup between the hottest player on tour and the man who has won this tournament ten times looks like it could be another epic.

After his amazing late 2023 hot streak, Sinner has just not stopped. The world No. 4 has defeated Botic van de Zandschulp, Jesper de Jong, Sebastián Báez, Karen Khachanov, and Andrey Rublev to get to his maiden Australian Open semifinal and his second Slam semifinal overall. Before defeating Rublev 6-4, 7-6(5), 6-3 on Tuesday, Sinner hadn’t lost a set and hadn’t even been involved in a tiebreaker.

This last week, Djoković hasn’t been as dominant, but as usual, he has improved as the competition has gone on. After winning four sets against Dino Prizmić and Alexei Popyrin in the opening two rounds, the 36-year-old easily defeated Tomás Martín Etcheverry and Adrian Mannarino in straight sets. Taylor Fritz won the second set despite failing to convert two set chances in the opening set of Tuesday’s quarterfinal encounter against Djoković. The Serb still won easily: 7-6(3), 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. Fritz showed everything he had up his sleeve, but he learned the hard way that Djoković is virtually invincible in Melbourne right now. The Serb has lifted the championship each and every time he has made it to the quarterfinals. In the quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals, Djokovic has indeed improved to 11-0, 10-0, and 10-0, respectively.

The 24-time major champion is 2-0 career versus Sinner at Slams, which is very noteworthy. Before defeating Andy Murray 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(4) in the All-England Club semifinal in 2023, Djoković overcame a two-set deficit to triumph in the Wimbledon semifinals in 2022. As those outcomes indicate, Djoković is simply too strong in best-of-five scenarios. Sinner has already made significant progress since Wimbledon, but he hasn’t yet proven himself in a five-setter in any of the major tennis arenas. He lost in the fourth round of last year’s Melbourne Open against Stefanos Tsitsipas, but he has also lost marathon matches at the other four slams, most notably in New York. Since Djoković is a unique breed in that he still needs to be given the mental and physical advantage over a 22-year-old opponent, another five-set thriller might be in store.

Match analytics

It’s a credit to Sinner’s current level of play if we say that this should become an instant classic, especially considering Djoković’s skill in Grand Slams and particularly in Melbourne. Betting pick: Correct Score 3-2 in favor of Djoković at odds of 4.70 on STARDA Casino.
