As most of the names will be on hand were likely to see a star-studded field. On the mens side, we will visit No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic and No. 3 Roger Federer. Because Wimbledon, it is our very first look at them for both Djokovic and Federer. Is a good bet here?

As he beat Roger Federer at the 2018 closing 6-4 djokovic is the defending champion at this occasion. Shockingly, it was his very first title in this time, that is astonishing because he has been in total in the last six occasions.
The issue is that Djokovic hasnt exactly flourished here of late. Yes, he got the win but had been absent in each of the two decades prior, then he lost in the quarters, lost in the third round and dropped in the last. In general, his record is merely 32-11 at this tournament. The 11 losses tie him for the maximum at any ATP 1000 tournament.
On the hard courts, nobody is playing at precisely exactly the identical time at the moment. Hes 33-3 on hard courts since the start of 2018 (not adding indoor). Hes the player.
Leaving apart the Big Three for a moment, there are not many dangers that are serious here. Dominic Thiem is the No. 4 seed but hes a clay-court specialist. Stefanos Tsitsipas is a clandestine 20-year-old using a shot but a reduction to Hubert Hurkacz within his first match in the Rogers Cup and to Nick Kyrgios in the semis in the Citi Open indicates hes not a threat.
Theres Kei Nishikori, who also lost at the Rogers Cup in his very first match, Alex Zverev, who is much better about clay, and Karen Kachanov, who is on the year.
Out of the more shots, a player like Kevin Anderson is capable of astonishing because he plays on hard courts but hes been injured. Marin Cilic is an option but he on the year. Who is there to wager within this tournament than the Big Three?
This is a key tune-up for your U.S. Open later this season, so I am expecting DjokovicsA game here. He has been off since Wimbledon and should be new.
As hes won the event seven times federer is a choice but he is much better on grass than hard courts. He is 29-5 in his 34 to the courts; he is 11-1 in his last 12 on grass.
That makes this championship Djokovics to lose in my books with Nadal pulling after just winning the Rogers Cup on the weekend.
Let us have fun and keep it civil.
