Analysis and prediction for the match “Roland Garros” Novak Djokovic – Kasper Ruud (11.06.2023)
Novak Djokovic on the verge of another record. If he wins the final, he will have 23 Grand Slam wins. It is true that in Paris this year he can only be the third victor for Novak. This is Rafael Nadal, who monopolized Roland Garros. But now Nadal is battling injuries, and Novak will surpass him in number of Grand Slam wins if he succeeds.
Until the quarterfinals, Djokovic did not experience any particular problems. Then I had to play Karen Khachanov – 1.5 sets, the Russian played better, but then Novak flared up and turned the tide of an unsuccessful match. Well, in the semifinals, the Serb defeated the new world tennis star Carlos Alcaraz. However, it is not known how everything would have turned out if the Spaniard had not encountered seizures. According to Alcaraz, his entire body was cramped. As a result, Djokovic won in four sets and advanced to the final. Here, at first glance, he has a simpler opponent – Kasper Ruud.
The Norwegian loves clay, this is his second Roland Garros final. Ruud didn’t have the best start to the season, but he broke out for the French Open. With the net, too, a bit of luck: of the serious rivals, Kasper had only Holger Rune and Alexander Zverev, who, after injury, had not yet returned to his optimal form.
The Norwegian has already said that nothing is pressing him and that he will try to play free. It is important to note that in the previous four meetings, Ruud did not take a single set from Djokovic. Is it possible now? Why not! First of all, Novak doesn’t seem like a real machine here, as he only powers up at critical moments in matches. Secondly, as we have already said, Ruud’s opponents were simpler, he must be clearly cooler, and this can help him. Of course, Ruud is unlikely to be able to beat Djokovic and win the Grand Slam tournament, experience and class are on Novak’s side. But the Norwegian is quite capable of winning in one game. You can bet that Ruud will win at least one set by 1.64.
