These two have played 10 times and Djokovic has won every game including the last meeting at this year’s Australian Open. Eight of the victories were decided in straight sets.
Djokovic will likely be the favorite because he is Djokovic and the h2h is completely one-sided. However, there is an opening here for Raonic with the way he serves and with far less wear and tear on his body. Djokovic has had a three-hour match that involved a lot of running, and he spent much of the last set constantly bending over and grabbing his stomach. Less than 24 hours later, and this is a difficult turnaround for even the best tennis player in the world.
I tend to have Raonic win this match, and I like him even more with plus money.
