The legendary Serbian tennis player at the beginning of 2020 looks not just great but absolutely brilliant. February is coming to the end, and in the new season nobody was able to defeat Novak in two months. It is possible that Djokovic has been set to set a record for the duration of the winning streak. In total in the current season Djokovic played 15 fights, in which he gained 15 wins.
The Serbian looks great in the current tournament. He has got three dry wins over Malek Jaziri, Philipp Kohlschreiber and Karen Khachanov, loosing only 3, 4 and 4 games correspondently. Djokovic was initially considered to be the main favorite for the triumph in Dubai and he already justifies this status, confidently moving to his fifth trophy.
Considering all the facts, his confident game and the previous Djokovic’s fights, we expect that he will not lose in the meeting with Gael Monfils.
The 33-year-old Frenchman also should be satisfied with his condition at the start of the new season. The excellent Australian Open, the confidently won competitions in Marseille and Rotterdam – indeed, Elina Svitolina’s boyfriend has almost no reason to be discouraged.
Monfils comes to the battle with Djokovic with a winning series of 11 positive results in a row, and for such a long segment Gael lost only one set. However, Djokovic showcases some kind of cosmic level of the game now, therefore, this impressive series of the Frenchman is likely to come to the unhappy end.
Both tennis players are highly experienced and qualified. However, head to head meetings is not an advantage for Monfils. Right now Djokovic leads in personal meetings with 16 wins in a row.
