Match Predict – Handicap (+7) for Rublev
Djokovic is making good progress. The Serbian is improving with each match. The 1/8 finals match was an easy one for Novak, giving De Minaur just five games. Rublev is unlikely to make much progress against Djokovic like this. Especially taking into account the fact that the last meeting between the two players took place last year in the final tournament and ended with a confident win for Novak in two sets. However, I believe in Rublev’s abilities.
Total Games Over 36
The two men faced each other at the end of last year’s final tournament and Djokovic won the match in two sets. In that match, Novak gave Rublev just five games. We don’t expect the upcoming meeting to be low-scoring as well.
Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Andrey Rublev vs Novak Djokovic
Rublev reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament for the seventh time.
On Monday, Andrey scored perhaps the most epic victory of his career. He defeated Holger Rune (6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 4-6, 7-6) in five sets.
In the fifth set, the Dane did not serve the match at 5-3. At 5-6, Rublev scored a double match point, and that was not all. In the decisive tie-break, Rune led 5:0, but even that advantage was not enough for him.
Rublev, of course, was also slightly shocked after such a sensational victory. At the end of the fifth set, there was no doubt that Rublev would lose, but Rublev did almost the impossible.
On his way to the quarter-finals, he also defeated Dominic Thiem (6-3, 6-4, 6-2), Emil Ruusuvuori (6-2, 6-4, 6-7, 6-3) and Dan Evans (6-4, 6-2, 6-3).
Rublev has won his last four matches in a row on hard courts.
“It was not about the flag … It was more that they started to tell me bad words."
Russian Andrey Rublev explained he had no issue with the Ukrainian flag being flown, he just wanted the verbal abuse to stop.

Djokovic, meanwhile, continues to impress. Novak defeated Alex De Minaur (6-2, 6-1, 6-2) in the fourth round.
Even Nole’s hamstring problems, which have made him uncomfortable in previous matches, didn’t help.
After his match against De Minaur, Novak said he felt fantastic. However, this was clear even before his comments. Nole, in fact, just didn’t notice his opponent.
Remarkably for Djokovic, it was his most resounding win at the Australian Open since 2019.
On his way to the quarter-finals, he also defeated Roberto Carballes-Baena (6-3, 6-4, 6-0), Enzo Couacaud (6-1, 6-7, 6-2, 6-0) and Grigor Dimitrov (7-6, 6-3, 6-4).
Djokovic has won his last 38 consecutive matches played in Australia.
