odds djokovic vs fritz

Everyone watching the Australian Open is of course waiting for the Novak Djokovic vs Taylor Fritz quarterfinal tomorrow. It should be an interesting game, even though it’s not really an even match-up, at least not when we’re looking at the odds among most betting sites.

Djokovic, the defending champion and a favorite for his 11th title, has shown his typical resilience. After initial challenges, including dropping sets early on, he’s back where we know he can be. Just look at the way he downed Mannarino in the previous round. Djokovic’s experience, strength and strategic play make him an, at times, impossible opponent.

When? 23 January, 14.30 local time (04.30 CET)

Fritz: The American Hope

Taylor Fritz has impressed us… Overcoming a tough first round, he’s since displayed impressive form, notably toppling Stefanos Tsitsipas. This was something we did not predict. Fritz’s powerful game, marked by a really strong serve and forehand, could possibly pose a serious challenge to Djokovic.

We also know Novak’s ability to deal with players with big shots…

Experience vs Youth

So what about the H2H for Djokovic v Fritz?

Djokovic’s record against Fritz is sligthly intimidating, standing at 8-0 in favor of the Serb. Their last match was of course in the 2023 US Open, where Djokovic beat Fritz 6-1, 6-4, 6-4.

So what can Fritz do? Well, at least a bit better we believe. With his recent form and powerful shots, he could make Djokovic sweat at certain parts of the match. Fritz’s ability to push Djokovic off his rhythm will be important.

Odds and More Betting Markets

Djokovic is tipped as the heavy favorite, and also believed to win in straight sets (1.76). We could see Fritz claiming one set though and a bet on 3-1 Novak gives you 3.20 at William Hill or -120 at BetUS.

Can Novak be Beaten?

Can Fritz break his losing streak against Djokovic and cause one of the big upsets of the Australian Open, or will the Serb continue his dominant run? We believe so, but one thing is certain – it’s a match not to be missed.
