Novak Djokovic is ‘slightly better at most things’ than Jannik Sinner but this 7 time Grand Slam winner believes the young Italian will at least win a set

Jannik Sinner faces Novak Djokovic tomorrow in the Wimbledon mens singles quarter finals with Mats Wilander predicting a win for the Serbian top seed. However he doesn’t think Djokovic will have it all his own way especially as Sinner has proven his game against two great players already this Wimbledon.

Speaking to Europsort Wilander said, ““I’m not sure if Jannik has enough firepower to bother Novak. I mean, he has enough firepower to kill John Isner and to basically kill Carlos Alcaraz. And obviously, Alcaraz beat Novak in Madrid on clay.

“Five sets at Wimbledon on centre court against Novak. I mean, you got to be good. There are so many different things and you have to win points so many different ways because it’s not enough to ball strike and fight hard against Novak alone.

“There has to be a little bit more if you’re gonna have a chance to win. The best attitude here is to go in and try and play the right way. And that’s what I’m sure Sinner will do. I’m sure he’s gonna play the way he can handle. And I’m sure he’s gonna try a few things like serve and volley once in a while and do a few things to disturb the rhythm of Novak.

“But, in general, it’s most probably a matchup that Novak is just slightly better at most things. But Sinner has improved so much with each match here and it’s possible that if he hits it hard enough… We know that Sinner is going to be defending most of the time, but it’s highly unlikely that if it lasts over five sets Sinner will actually win.

“It will be very unexpected if Sinner doesn’t have a chance, or if he doesn’t win a set. Maybe at least get to five in a set or play a tiebreaker then that would be that would be more of a surprise than if it’s a very straightforward sort of 6-3, 6-3, 6-3. I think that would be a little bit more surprising rather than potentially Sinner taking a set.”
