Nino Serdarusic vs. Novak Djokovic - 2020 Adria Tour
Sunday, June 21 2020
Novak Djokovic, who has already qualified for the Final tonight, will meet Nino Serdarusic, who replaces Danilo Petrovic who retired due to injury, at the 2020 Adria Tour. Will Djokovic take it easy in this match as he is already qualified for the final, or will Djokovic teach Serdarusic a lesson nonetheless?
Nino Serdarusic is a very unknown player on the tour. Ranked 299, Serdarusic has only every played 4 matches on the ATP Tour, and has lost 3 of them. Serdarusic is more of a challenger level player who is getting a once in a lifetime opportunity to play against the best player in the world. Nino will be looking to play his best as he has nothing to lose here. I expect Serdarusic to have fun here, but I would be extremely shocked if he is able to get anything out of this match other than a few games under his belt.
Novak Djokovic was absolutely superb yesterday against both Pedja Krstin and Borna Coric. Djokovic is getting the rust off his game after not having played for a very long time and he is getting back into the groove. Djokovic, when on top of his game, is almost unstoppable and he is the best returner in the game. Djokovic's efforts on Saturday have allowed him to already book his spot in the final tonight and he will want to use this match as a warm-up for the big final. Will Djokovic allow the younger player to beat him, or will Djokovic still be determined to win a pointless encounter for him?
This is going to be the first match between both players and unfortunately for Nino Serdarusic, this is going to end only one way. Novak Djokovic is too good for the young Croat and he will come out and dominate the match. Djokovic will not want to spend too much time on the court as he wants to keep most of his energy for the final tonight, and therefore I think Nole will try and finish this match in two quick sets.
Novak Djokovic to win.
