Novak Djokovic vs Roberto Bautista-Agut Betting Tips and Predictions, as these two go head-to-head for a place in the Wimbledon final.
Defending champion Novak Djokovic is into yet another Wimbledon semi-final, and world number one will be looking to reach the final here for the 6th time in his career. Djokovic began this year’s tournament with a comfortable straight-sets win over Philipp Kohlschreiber, before following that up with another straight-sets win, this time over Denis Kudla. The thirty-two-year-old then dropped his only set of these Championships so far against Hubert Hurkacz, but he proved too strong in the end as he came through in four-sets. Since then, Djokovic has raised his game in the second week of these Championships, recording back-to-back straight-set wins over Ugo Humbert and David Goffin to reach this semi-final. Novak Djokovic is the player to beat at these Championships, but will anyone be able to stop the four-time champion?
Roberto Bautista-Agut is into his maiden grand slam semi-final, and the Spanish ace will fancy his chances of producing a stunning upset in this match. Bautista-Agut, who has already beaten Djokovic twice this season, is playing arguably the tennis of his life right now, and he’s going to be confident in this match. The thirty-one-year-old began the tournament with four successive straight-set wins over Peter Gojowczyk, Steve Darcis, Karen Khachanov and Benoit Paire. The Spanish ace then dropped his first set of the tournament in the quarter-finals, but it was merely a blip in what was an otherwise dominating four-set victory over Guido Pella. Roberto Bautista-Agut is into his first semi-final here at Wimbledon, but after confidence boosting wins over Djokovic already this season, the Spaniard is going to fancy his chances of keeping this fairy-tale run going.
Will Djokovic move to within a win of a 5th Wimbledon title, or can Bautista-Agut produce a stunning upset to reach his maiden grand slam final?
Novak Djokovic leads the head-to-head between these two 7-3, which includes winning all three of their previous grand slam matches. However, Bautista-Agut has managed to win a set in each of those three previous grand slam meetings, while he’s also coming into this semi-final having won both of the matches these two have played this season. However, Djokovic is vastly more experienced with grand slam semi-finals, and this will be his 36th, while Bautista-Agut will be appearing in his first. Djokovic holds a mightily impressive 24-11 in grand slam semi-finals, which includes winning 10 of his 11. The Serbian ace is also 5-3 in semi-finals here, which includes winning his last 4 successively.
