Prediction and Conclusion

Novak Djokovic had a pretty easy draw in the first three rounds of the tournament, but now things are getting more challenging. Holger Rune has beaten Djokovic twice before, and he will definitely stand a chance in this match. Still, Rune is not on the level he was a couple of years ago and had to come back from two sets down in the previous match. Djokovic is still the favorite to win, but that will not come easy, so we go with over 3.5 sets in total.
