Top seed Novak Djokovic will begin his title defense at the 2024 Australian Open against Croatian qualifier Dino Prizmic. The match will be played on Sunday, January 14, 2024. Here's our Novak Djokovic vs Dino Prizmic Prediction.
Novak Djokovic has won the Australian Open a record ten times. In the past decade, no player can match that level of dominance and excellence. He hasn't lost a match at Melbourne Park since 2018, although his proud unbeaten run of 43 straight matches without defeat on Australian soil came to a juddering halt at the United Cup when he lost to Alex de Minaur. Djokovic has been perturbed by a wrist injury coming to the tournament, and he has been positive about it, saying that with ample time, he'll recover. The Serb couldn't have asked for a more straightforward draw to begin his title defense on Sunday, which is the earliest start day for an Australian Open.
Dino Prizmic is an 18-year-old who hails from Split, Croatia. He is currently ranked 178th in the world and won the Roland Garros boy's singles title last year, which was also a breakthrough year for him on the Challenger Tour, where he bagged a maiden title. Ahead of his first Grand Slam senior main draw debut, Prizmic admits he has nothing to lose and wants to feel relaxed about this whole occasion.
Novak Djokovic vs Dino Prizmic Prediction
Unsurprisingly, this is the first career meeting between Novak Djokovic and Dino Prizmic. The 18-year-old honed his tennis skills in the same famous club in Split that Djokovic's coach, Goran Ivanisevic, came through during his playing days. He's already touted as a potential star of Croatian men's tennis. That remains to be seen, but his exponential rise in the past 12 months has been terrific. He's been thrown to the wolf here on his senior Grand Slam debut. Nerves will certainly play a major part, and Prizmic will hardly settle even though he spoke candidly about trying to give the best impression of himself in what will be a packed Rod Laver Arena. Expect Djokovic to win this in straight sets at -333, which you can lump on a parlay.
