Novak is a great tennis player, perhaps the best in history, but this statement will always be controversial, since everyone has their own personal opinion on this matter. But even the worst hater of the legendary 32-year-old Serb will not argue with the fact that Djokovic looks incredible now.
Seventeen matches in a row – this is how long the winning streak of Novak lasts. Gael Monfils, who had a triple matchball in a duel with Djokovic, had the most chances to interrupt the great winner, but at the decisive moment of the game, the current first racket of the planet got stronger nerves.
Djokovic won this tournament in 2013, so after 7 years Novak again has the opportunity to raise the main prize above his head. By the way, five years ago, the Novak also played in the final, but lost to Roger Federer. In the current draw, Djokovic did not experience any special difficulties until the semi-finals. In fact, the Frenchman Gael Monfils was the first to challenge the world’s first racket. And after all, Monfils was close to knocking Djokovic out of the tournament. After winning the first set, Gael played the second game on equal footing and had a match-break in a tie-break. But the experienced Novak managed to recoup and turn the tie-break course in his direction, after which he easily won the third game (6-1).
Tsitsipas plays nonstop for the second week in a row. Last week the Greek won the competition in Marseille – in the final match he defeated Felix Auger-Aliassime in two games (6-3, 6-4). Now Stefanos will play in the next final.
Greek easily went all the way of the tournament, almost without encountering real resistance. Tsitsipas spent three sets only with the german tennis player Struff. In other matches, Stefanos dealt with opponents confidently. Even in the semifinal match Daniel Evans could not give a tough fight to the sixth racket of the world. Tsitsipas won with a large margin – 6-2, 6-3. Last year, Stefanos also reached the finals in Dubai, but then Swiss Roger Federer was stronger.
In the decisive match of the tournament in Dubai, the Greek will have a hard time – there he will face the invincible Djokovic this season. However, Tsitsipas knows very well how to beat Djokovic, since the Greek leads in face to face matches. In addition, the first racket of Greece had more time for rest before the final.

Novak Djokovic vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Predictions
Tsitsypas leads their head to head meetings with a score of 3-2. Djokovic has an opportunity to make the score equal. Stefanos plays for the second week in a row and he may have accumulated some exhaustion, which may play into Novak’s hands.
Djokovic is in good physical shape, which was demonstrated by his recent three-set match against Gael Monfis, so we give preference to him in the upcoming meeting.
- Novak Djokovic will win.
