Tsitsipas’ highlight of the season has been successfully defending his title at the Monte-Carlo Masters. He also won his first title on grass in Mallorca. Besides winning the two titles, the Greek ace reached an additional five finals – Rotterdam, Rome, Cincinnati, Astana, and Stockholm.

Novak Djokovic’s form coming into the match

Novak Djokovic is seeded No.7 in the tournament and will aim to end the year on a high after missing out on several high-profile tournaments. The Serbian missed the Australian Open, the US Open, and a couple of Masters 1000 events because of his stance on Covid-19 vaccination. His biggest triumph this year came at Wimbledon, where he won his 21st Grand Slam title.

Djokovic is coming into this tournament after finishing as runners-up last week in the Paris Masters. He lost 6-3, 3-6, 5-7 to Holger Rune in the final. However, Djokovic showed glimpses of his class during the event and will look to be on the top of his game in Turin.

Head-to-head and Predictions

Djokovic and Tsitsipas have faced each other eleven times before on the ATP tour. The Serbian has an over-whelming record, leading 9-2 on head to head. In 2022, there have been three matches between both players, with Djokovic coming out on top on all three occasions. We are expecting a close affair this time around, but Djokovic should win it in three sets.
