Djokovic v Carreno-Busta preview and tips | Olympic Games
Novak Djokovic and Pablo Carreno-Busta will square off in Tokyo Olympics on Saturday at 7.00am, with both aiming to win one medal for their countries.
Novak Djokovic’s goal of achieving the Golden Slam ended in the Semi-finals as he lost in three sets against Alexander Zverev. The Serb had won the first set 6-1 and even had a break in the second set, but uncharacteristically, he failed to convert this advantage. This loss against Zverev ended an unbelievable 22-match winning streak at all levels, including a nine-match winning run in Tokyo.
Meanwhile, Pablo Carreno-Busta has lost his battle with Karen Khachanov in straight sets, while winning just six games in the process. Regardless of this disappointing result, this is an excellent result for Pablo as he now has a great chance of winning a bronze medal for his country. This will be the second consecutive Olympics with a Spaniard in the last four players after Rafel Nadal’s defeat to Kei Nishikori in the battle for bronze back in Rio 2016.
Novak Djokovic and Kei Nishikori will square off in the quarter-finals of the Olympic’s Men on Thursday morning at 08.30am (UK Time).
After recently winning the Wimbledon 2021, Novak Djokovic began his adventure at the Tokyo Olympics in style. The Serb has won his first three matches in straight sets while dropping just 15 games in the process. Nole is currently on a 21-match winning streak and hasn’t lost a single match on outdoor hard courts this year. This is a great opportunity for Novak to win the Olympics Gold and also complete the Grand Slam calendar with a title at the US Open.
Meanwhile, Kei Nishikori has lost just one set in his opening three matches after beating the likes of Rublev, Giron, and Ivashka. He had a tough match against Ivashka in the previous round, having recovered from a break deficit on three occasions in the first set. Nishikori has been struggling with fitness issues over the past few years and he has lost both quarterfinals this year.
Djokovic hasn’t lost a single set in his previous two meetings with Kei Nishikori, so we fancy the Under 19.5 Games at odds of 6/10 with Bet365.
