Janko Tipsarevic v Novak Djokovic
Janko Tipsarevic ()
These two are close friends and are also well aware of the what the other is able to do, but I think Janko Tipsarevic is capable of winning a set especially judging on how close most of their previous matches have been.
Novak Djokovic has the 4-2 lead in the head to head so I am not sure Tipsarevic will have enough to win the match outright, but it is telling that he has won at least one set in 5 of those 6 previous matches.
The lower ranked Serb is also playing some very solid stuff this week in Toronto and he has been in good form in the whole of 2012 as he has the belief that he should be playing in the back end of tournaments. He has spent less time on the court this week too and that may also make the difference as both players were doing double-duty last night and it is Tipsarevic who has had a little more rest and time to recover his fitness of the two.
I did consider backing Novak Djokovic to win this 2-1 in sets, but there is a tiredness factor to consider and I am not sure how much he would have left if Tipsarevic wins the first set- on the other hand, I don't have full faith that Tipsy can take the match so I'll stick with this pick at odds against.
