Top seed Novak Djokovic will face Italy's Lorenzo Musetti in the third round of the 2024 Monte Carlo Masters. The match will be played on Thursday, April 11, 2024. Here's our Novak Djokovic vs Lorenzo Musetti prediction.

Djokovic demolishes Safiullin

Novak Djokovic came into this year's Monte Carlo Masters, having lost three matches in the first three months of the season. There is also imminent danger of losing the world no. 1 ranking at the end of the clay swing with the form that Jannik Sinner is currently in. The Serbian ace has made some necessary and surprising changes in order to eradicate his modest start to 2024, the boldest of which was to part ways with coach Goran Ivanisevic. He got the reaction he wanted with a flawless second-round win over Roman Safiullin under the eyes of his new coach Nenan Zimonjic. It took the top seed an hour and 11 minutes to win 6-1, 6-2. 

Musetti backs up Fritz win by beating Fils

Lorenzo Musetti advanced into the third round stage of the Monte Carlo Masters for the third year in a row with a commanding win over French teenager Arthur Fils. Having upset USA's top-ranked man, Taylor Fritz, in his opener, the world no. 24 produced a fine display of accurate ball striking to win 6-3, 7-5 in an hour and 42 minutes. Musetti will need to polish up his serve which was broken twice. But having defeated Djokovic in last year's thriller at this tournament, he will be looking to replicate that perfomance.

Novak Djokovic vs Lorenzo Musetti Head-To-Head

Novak Djokovic leads Lorenzo Musetti 3-1 in their head-to-head. On clay, the series is tied at 1-1. Musetti famously produced a miraculous comeback to beat the two-time Monte Carlo champion 12 months ago in three sets.

Novak Djokovic vs Lorenzo Musetti Prediction

Djokovic was at his scintillating best in swatting aside Roman Safiullin. But as far as tricky tests go, Musetti will offer one in the third round. The Italian is a perennial threat on clay even though he has had a stop-start season. Djokovic has cast aside sky-high expectations after that convincing win over Safiullin, but if continues to play the way he did in the second round, there is no reason to think his best days are past him. We are backing the Serb to avenge last year's loss in another assured display.
