Rublev vs Djokovic Prediction & Pick

Rublev has a chance to earn the biggest win of his life on Tuesday. The 25-year-old has never made the semifinals of a Grand Slam tournament and is facing one of the best men's tennis players in the entire world. Rublev has beaten Djokovic once before, but that match was played on a clay court.

Djokovic has gotten the best of Rublev in both matchups played on a hard court and I anticipate more of the same this time around. The veteran's hamstring seems to be holding up after an early scare as he picked apart De Minaur with pinpoint accuracy on well-placed shots. Djokovic is simply cruising.

Djokovic has a chance to level the men's Grand Slam title record, too, so expect no mercy from the Serbian.

Winner: Novak Djokovic

Rublev vs Djokovic Best Bet

I touched on the fact that Djokovic beat Rublev in both of their prior meetings on a hard court. It's important to note that neither match was incredibly close, either. Djokovic won in straight sets both times and logged a total of 26 aces. Rublev did not have the range to keep up in the longer rallies.

Djokovic has beaten three of his first four opponents in the Australian Open in three sets, with his lone set loss coming via a tiebreak back in the second round. While the competition is getting better as he moves along in the tournament, Djokovic is showing that his best tennis is yet to be played.

Bet: Novak Djokovic 3-0 (+115)
