Novak Djokovic vs Andrey Rublev preview
Despite battling a hamstring injury, Djokovic has been in excellent form at this year’s tournament, dropping just one set in his first four matches. He has won 25 consecutive Australian Open matches, the last being a fourth-round loss to Hyeon Chung in 2018, and has played 38 consecutive matches in the country. Djokovic has won four of the last six Grand Slam events he has participated in and has reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open in 13 of his last 15 appearances.
Rublev is becoming increasingly familiar with Grand Slam quarterfinals as he competes in his third straight and seventh overall. The 25-year-old Russian has yet to advance to the semi-finals, however, having lost in straight sets to Frances Tiafoe in the quarters of the 2022 US Open. Rublev holds a 1-2 career record against Djokovic, including both a loss on hardcourts and a win on clay in last year’s Serbian Open final. You can see Onorato’s best bets here,
