THE PREDICTION

After some neck troubles threatened to derail Djokovic in his opener against Ricardas Berankis, the Serb showed no ill-effects in a much more accomplished victory over Tennys Sandgren last time out and will feel much better about things going into this quarter-final. His opponent Jan-Lennard Struff will be appearing in the last eight of a Masters 1000 event for the first time in his career and has done things the hard way having overcome three players ranked higher than him – Alex de Minaur, Denis Shapovalov and David Goffin – to reach this stage.

As impressive as Struff has been, he simply doesn’t possess the weapons needed to penetrate Djokovic’s defence and if the Serb continues to go up a gear, as he so often does throughout a tournament, then he should win this in straight sets.
