The Line: -- Over/Under:
Serbian tennis superstar Novak Djokovic is set to play at the 2020 ATP Dubai Tennis Championship in the UAE. Djokovic will begin his tournament against Malek Jaziri from Tunisia.
It has been a very challenging start to 2020 for Malek Jaziri as he has struggled to build any momentum. Jaziri has mostly played in Challenger tournaments with his only main ATP tournaments being the Qatar Open. Malek Jaziri has played 5 tournaments this season but the Tunisian has struggled at every event as he has only won 1 match in 2020. This is expected to be an extremely tough challenge for Malek Jaziri as he is playing against the top player in the world.
On the other side of the coin, Novak Djokovic has been in incredible touch in 2020. Djokovic has played at the ATP Cup and the Australian Open and he won both tournaments. Novak Djokovic has remained undefeated this season while defeating the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Daniil Medvedev, and Dominic Thiem. The Dubai Tennis Championship has been a strong tournament for Novak Djokovic as he has won the title on 4 occasions. Djokovic most recently won the title in 2013 although he made the final of this tournament in 2015. Novak Djokovic is looking in dominant form and he enters this event as the favorite to lift the trophy.
