Garín vs Djoković Prediction on October 5, 2022
On Wednesday, October 5, Cristian Garín and Novak Djoković will play the match that will, among several others, open the competition of the men’s tennis ATP singles tournament, Astana Open 2022. The 1/16 finals encounter is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. local time (7 a.m. Moscow time) in Astana, Kazakhstan.
The first opponent of Novak Djoković at the hard-court tournament in Astana will be the Chilean player, the 81st racket of the world, Christian Garín. The South American had no game practice for more than a month, while the Serb confidently won the tournament in Tel Aviv last week. It’s logical that the Balkan guy is listed as a huge favorite in the upcoming game according to online bookies with deposit bonuses. The current form of Garín After successfully competing at Wimbledon, Garín suffered a decline. The Chilean failed at the clay tournaments in Gstaad and Kitzbühel, and flew out of the American Major after the second round, losing to Alex De Minaur, but beating Jiří Lehečka. Much says that Garín doesn’t stand a chance against Novak Djoković, who gained excellent form after a pause. The latest results of Garín (5 matches): • Defeated by De Minaur with a score of 1-3. • Victory over Lehečka with a score of 3-1. • Defeated by Coria with a score of 0-2. • Defeated by Hanfmann with a score of 0-2. • Defeated by Kyrgios with a score of 0-3. The current form of Djoković In early September, Djoković played in a strange way in London, at the Laver Cup. First, the Serb defeated Tiafoe and then lost in two sets to Auger-Aliassime. After London, Djoković headed to Tel Aviv, where he won the ATP 250 series tournament. In Israel, he didn’t lose a single set, although duels against Pospisil and Safiullin can hardly be called very easy. But the Serb beat Andújar and then Čilić very confidently in the final. Recall that Novak Djoković is fighting for a place in the Final tournament while being noticeably inferior to Medvedev, Rublev, Auger-Aliassime, and Hurkacz. In the event of a triumph in Astana, Djoković can even break into the top eight, but it will also depend on how his competitors perform. The latest results of Djoković (5 matches): • Victory over Čilić with a score of 2-0. • Victory over Safiullin with a score of 2-0. • Victory over Pospisil with a score of 2-0. • Victory over Andújar with a score of 2-0. • Defeated by Auger-Aliassime with a score of 0-2. Head-to-head encounters Djoković and Garín played each other three times, and Novak won all the matches without losing a single set. They played twice on grass: in 2019, at the Boodles Challenge, and in 2021, at Wimbledon; in 2020, at the ATP Cup, they played on a hard surface.
There’s no doubt that Novak Djoković will achieve victory in the upcoming game, and, with a high degree of probability, this victory will be confident, and possibly devastating. The Chilean hasn't played since the US Open, while Djoković has great practice – the Serb won the tournament in Tel Aviv last week without dropping a set. So everything speaks of another easy walk for the 7th racket of the world. We offer the following betting options for the game: a total of under 18 games for 1.94 on Veerbet.
