Click Here for the Latest Odds

Novak Djokovic and Matteo Berrettini meet Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the 2021 French Open.

Novak Djokovic is coming off a five sets win over Lorenzo Musetti that took 43 games to decide. In the victory, Djokovic won 75 percent of his first serve points and 54 percent of his second serve points. Djokovic won 69 percent of his total service points and converted on nine of his nine break points. Djokovic dropped his first two sets and was in danger of being upset. However, Musetti fell apart in the later sets and then retired late in the fifth set. Djokovic hopes to make a grand slam semifinal for the ninth time in his last 11 trips. Djokovic hasn’t lost a grand slam quarterfinal since the 2018 French Open. Djokovic has won eight straight matches on clay court.

Matteo Berrettini is coming off a walkover victory over Roger Federer. Berrettini has played just 10 sets to get to this point and is going to be as well rested as he can possibly get. Berrettini also hit 53 winners in his last match, something that would give him a fighting chance if he can repeat such an effort. Berrettini has won seven straight sets and has seven career wins over top-10 players. Berrettini looks to make his second career grand slam semifinal. Berrettini has won six of his last seven matches on clay court.

These two have played once, which was a 2019 match in London. Djokovic won the match in straight sets. The match took 15 games to be decided. 

Berrettini and the plus money here is worth a look when you consider the rest advantage. Berrettini hasn’t played since Saturday, while Djokovic is coming off a five set performance on Monday. That’s worthy of a shot at this price. However, Djokovic usually bounces back from a subpar performance and this point in the tournament, experience usually plays a big role. Berrettini lacks big match experience to slay the dragon.

Give me Djokovic in three or four sets.
