Novak Djokovic has made it into the semifinals of the 2020 ATP French Open at Roland Garros in Paris. At this stage of the tournament, Novak Djokovic is set to play against Stefanos Tsitsipas from Greece. 

Novak Djokovic struggled with some injury issues early during his previous match but the Serbian superstar fought back very strongly to win the match in 4 sets. During the win, Novak Djokovic impressed with his receiving as he won 42% of his receiving points which allowed him to break his opponent’s serve on 6 occasions. The serving was also strong from Djokovic as he won 85% of his service games. It has been an outstanding season for Novak Djokovic as the Serbian superstar is yet to lose a match except for his disqualification at the US Open. Considering his recent form, Djokovic will fancy his chances of winning this tournament. 

On the other side of the coin, Stefanos Tsitsipas enters this match having defeated Andrey Rublev in straight sets in the previous round. It was a strong performance by Tsitsipas as he won 93% of his service games and 5 return games. Tsitsipas has been amongst the elite players on the ATP tour in the past few years but the Greek superstar is yet to break through and win his first major tournament. That being said, this is expected to be a tough match for Stefanos Tsitsipas as he is playing against the top seed in Novak Djokovic. 

Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas have played each other 5 times in the past with Djokovic winning on 3 occasions and Tsitsipas winning twice. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at Dubai where Novak Djokovic won in straight sets.

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Novak Djokovic to win this match. Stefanos Tsitsipas should challenge Djokovic but the Serbian superstar has simply been too good this season and I don’t see that changing in this match. I see Djokovic winning this match in 4 sets.
