Prediction and Conclusion

Novak Djokovic surprised many by making an appearance at Wimbledon only 25 days after knee surgery. The Serbian has shown many times why he is considered the greatest player of all time, but it is obvious that he is not on top of his game. He was pretty lucky in the draw, and Popyrin is the most serious player he will face this week. They played at the Australian Open this season, with Popyrin winning one set. He has a solid serve, which will win many games for him. Djokovic is the favorite, and his knee is the biggest opponent for him. However, Popyrin is good and experienced enough to have a shot in this match, and it will go over 36.5 games in total.
