Tennis | Grigor Dimitrov vs Novak Djokovic
Susan Mullane-USA TODAY Sports

After a long break due to injury, Novak Djokovic is back playing tennis and he marked his return well as he won in straight sets in his opening round game of the ATP Queens tournament. This week he will be further tested as he takes on Bulgarian superstar, Grigor Dimitrov.

Grigor Dimitrov has been very dominant in the past few years and he is looking in good form as he enters this game. The Bulgarian is the second seed for this tournament and that shows the quality of the players. Grigor Dimitrov would have been disappointed by his round of 32 exit in the French Open but winning this tournament and getting ready for Wimbledon will make things a lot better for him. This is the first tournament that Grigor Dimitrov is playing since the French Open so he should be fresh heading into this match.

On the other side of the court, Novak Djokovic will know that if he can beat Grigor Dimitrov, he will prove to many people that he is back. Djokovic has been out of action for a long time and although he played the French Open, it could be seen he was not 100% fit. This tournament will help him regain fitness and get ready for Wimbledon and I think he is looking good in general for that goal.
All in all, I think that Novak Djokovic wins this game. While Grigor Dimitrov is a terrific player, I think that Novak Djokovic is looking fit and when he is fit, he is better than any player in the world. We are getting a very good price to bet on the Serbian champion and as a result, that is the wager which I am going to suggest that we make.
