Djokovic vs. Lajovic
Novak Djokovic has reunited with his long-time former coach Marian Vajda for the 2018 Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters. The two-time champion hopes to rediscover top form in the Monte Carlo Country Club after a disappointing start to 2018. Djokovic holds a poor 4 – 3 record this season and lost his last three official matches on the ATP World Tour – his worst streak in 11 years. Nevertheless, playing on this event brings great memories to Novak with the former world No.1 winning 78.05% of the matches played throughout his career in Monte Carlo.
Dusan Lajovic couldn’t have asked for more on his return to clay. The 27-year-old will make his main draw debut at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters after a straight-sets win over Sergiy Stakhovsky in the final round of the qualifying. Despite slow start to 2018, Lajovic is going through one of the best moments in his career with an impressive 81.82% winning record since March. Adding to this, the world No.90 claimed his 6th ATP Challenger Tour title a few weeks ago in Le Gosier.
These two players will face each other for the second time in their careers with Djokovic losing only three games on their previous encounter at the Qatar Open in 2015.
Despite Novak’s lack of success in recent months, it’s impossible to ignore his brilliant record on this event. On the other hand, it won’t be easy for Lajovic to face the biggest legend in the history of Serbian tennis. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the tremendous value on Djokovic’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on his -1.5 Set Handicap at 93/100 at green listed bookmaker Pinnacle.
