Novak Djokovic vs Botic van de Zandschulp Prediction, Head-to-Head, Preview, Betting Tips and Live Stream- Astana Open 2022

On Thursday, the second round of the 2022 Astana Open will take place. Novak Djokovic, a 21-time Major champion, will play against Botic van de Zandschulp, the 34th-ranked player in the world.

After taking home his 89th career victory at the Tel Aviv Open over the weekend, Djokovic arrived here. In Astana’s opening round, Cristian Garin was paired up against the Serb. In the very first game of the encounter, Djokovic broke his opponent’s serve to get the contest off to a great start. To make it 2-0, he responded with a hold of his own. Garin joined the team in the following game, but that was the only time he was able to maintain serve in the opening set. The Serb won the following four matches in a row to secure the opening match. Even the second set was not close; Djokovic won the match 6-1, 6-1 after winning five straight games.

The first round of Botic van de Zandschulp’s campaign in Astana pitted him against Beibit Zhukayev, a local favourite. The seasoned World No. 34 defeated the Kazakh player, breaking his serve three times to win the match. When he broke the Dutchman’s serve to take the lead 1-0 in the second set, Zhukayev appeared to challenge. Van de Zandschulp, however, won the following six games in a row to win the match 6-1, 6-1.

Djokovic vs van de Zandschulp Prediction

From the very first point, the Dutch player will need to match his opponent’s ferocity and give it all he has. He will be immediately put on the back foot by even a small error. Given his current form, Djokovic is unlikely to lose this match, despite van de Zandschulp’s efforts to make it difficult.
