We are being treated to some super exciting exhibition tennis here in Australia before the start of the ATP Cup as Novak Djokovic meets Jannik Sinner on Friday, February 29th 2020 at the 'A Day At The Drive'! Will we see the best from Djokovic here before the start of the Australian tennis swing, or will Sinner cause the upset here?
Novak Djokovic is participating in the ATP Cup and he will be very eager to get some competitive minutes under his belt before the tournament starts on Tuesday, even if it is in an exhibition match. The Serb superstar has been putting in some incredible hard work behind closed doors here in Australia, and this exhibition will be a solid way for him to begin showing off his superb tennis before he puts on a show for Team Serbia in Melbourne. Djokovic is known for loving exhibition tennis, and although it is all fun and games, he always loves to win.
Jannik Sinner will be participating in his first big stage exhibition tournament here at the 'A Day At The Drive' and he is in a super loaded line up with the likes of Nadal, Djokovic, Thiem, Osaka, Serena Williams, Halep, and Ashleigh Barty. Sinner is going to be a big part of the future of tennis, and he should definitely start getting used to these sorts of tournaments as he will be continuously invited if he keeps playing and improving like he is. Sinner is facing the toughest opponent here through in Novak Djokovic, will he be able to cause the upset?
This is going to be the first meeting between both players, and although this is an exhibition tournament and will be very fun and light hearted, I cannot see Djokovic losing this. Novak Djokovic loves to win anything he can. On the other hand, this will be Sinner's first big stage exhibition tournament, and he might not be used to these situation. It might be a 3-setter, as both players will take this match light-heartedly, but Novak Djokovic should get a victory under his belt before the start of the ATP Cup here in Australia.
