Novak Djokovic and Cristian Garin meet Monday in the fourth round of the 2021 tennis Wimbledon.
Novak Djokovic is coming off a straight sets win over Denis Kudla that took 32 games to decide. In the victory, Djokovic won 88 percent of his first serve points and 50 percent of his second serve points. Djokovic won 71 percent of his total service points and converted on four of his 11 break points. Djokovic got 54 percent of his first serves in play, was broken twice and hit 28 unforced errors. Djokovic still won the match in straight sets, but he’ll be nitpicking his performance for sure. Djokovic hopes to make his 11th grand slam quarterfinal in his last 13 tries. Djokovic hopes to make his 12th Wimbledon quarterfinal. Djokovic has won 10 straight matches on grass court.
Cristian Garin is coming off a four sets win over Pedro Martinez that took 39 games to decide. In the victory, Garin won 76 percent of his first serve points and 57 percent of his second serve points. Garin won 69 percent of his total service points and converted on five of his 22 break points. Garin got 61 percent of his first serves in play and hit 15 aces. If Garin continues that serving performance, he has a chance to compete in this match. Garin look to make his first career grand slam quarterfinal. Garin has two wins over top-10 players and one of those wins came this year. Garin has split his last eight matches on grass court.
Djokovic won both meetings against Garin in straight sets. The matches took place in the 2020 ATP Cup and 2019 Boobles Challenge exhibition.
Garin will have his chances to make this match competitive if he serves the way he did in his last match. However, Garin is still green to grand slam success and players like this usually get washed by Djokovic. We also saw Djokovic struggle with unforced errors and his first serve his last time out, things he’ll likely clean up here.
Give me Djokovic in straight sets.
