2019 ATP Finals: Novak Djokovic vs Matteo Berrettini - Predictions & Odds

2019 ATP Finals – Event Information

When: Sunday, November 10th at 9:00 AM EST.

Where: The O2 Arena in London, England

Head to Head Record: 0-0

What’s at Stake?

Djokovic and Berrettini will play in the first match of this year’s ATP Finals.

The two have never met at an ATP Tour match.

A win is worth 200 points for the ATP ranking, which is extremely important for Djokovic.

It goes without saying, but getting the campaign started with a win is also important.

With only three round-robin matches, every single one of them counts a lot.

Winning without dropping a set is also important because of tie-breakers.

Novak Djokovic

2019 Record: 53-9, 5 titles

Djokovic will try to reclaim his ATP Finals crown.

The Serb won four consecutive editions of the tournament from 2012 until 2015.

He made it to the finals in 2016 and again last year, but lost on both occasions.

Depending on a combination of results, Nole could also reclaim his spot at the top of the ATP ranking.

Winning the title would also mean tying Roger Federer’s record, with six ATP World Tour Finals trophies to his name.

But, in order to do that, Djokovic needs to get past youngster Matteo Berrettini first.

While the young Italian is no pushover, the road does get significantly tough after this for Djokovic.

He will take on Dominic Thiem and Federer in the other two Group Björn Borg matches.

Starting things off with a win would boost his chances of making it to the semifinals.

He has made it past round-robin eight times in 11 ATP Finals appearances.

Matteo Berrettini

Berrettini had a meteoric rise up the ATP ranking in 2019.

After winning his first career title at the ATP Tour level in 2018, the young Italian started 2019 outside the top 20.

Steadily improving over the course of the year, Berrettini soon established himself among the top players.

His improvement on the faster surfaces was also quite noticeable.

The Italian won a title on the grass in Stuttgart and also made it to the fourth round in Wimbledon.

Berrettini’s most significant achievement came at the US Open, with a semifinals berth.

He is coming off another semi-finals berth in Shanghai.

The Italian isn’t considered a genuine contender for the ATP Finals title, and will likely use this tournament as a learning experience.

That being said, Berrettini could still win a match in this group.

Djokovic vs Berrettini – Head-to-Head

This will be their first-ever meeting at the ATP Tour level.

Berrettini holds a 2-8 overall record against the top 8 players.

Djokovic, meanwhile, feels at home when it comes to playing in London.

The Serb made it to the championship match in his last six ATP Finals appearances.

Berrettini could offer a bit of a challenge given his recent results, but Djokovic is the favorite by a significant margin.

Prediction: Djokovic 2-0, under 21.5 games.
