Novak Djokovic Vs Miomir Kecmanovic Match Prediction: Who Will Win This Match?

Though he has not had enough match practice this season, Djokovic will still remain the favourite to win this match. He has won against Kecmanovic at this same event only last year and will look to repeat his game plan. Kecmanovic has improved since last year, but it remains to be seen if he can hold his own against a player of Djokovic’s calibre. Djokovic will look to dominate, take balls on the rise and put pressure on Kecmanovic early on in the match. Kecmanovic should aim to keep the ball in play and rally longer, to exploit Djokovic’s recent fitness levels.

Prediction: Djokovic to win in 3 sets.
