Djokovic - Federer
The semi-final tournament in the French capital, Paris. The strengths will be measured for me by two of the three best tennis players ever , Switzerland s Roger Federer, and Serbian Novak Djokovic. I bet Federer will take at least one set in this match.
Federer in this tournament looks very good. Until the semifinals came without a lost set, although the percentage of the first service was not the best and it was only 50%, the percentage of the points won after the first service was phenomenal and combined in the two played matches won 50/57 points and especially good on the service was against Nishikorija who won only 2 points after the first serve Federer (28/30). On the other hand, Djokovic had tremendous problems against Cilic, he was on the verge of defeat and pulled a phenomenal backhand passing shot on the break point for Cilic at 3-3 in deciding set. Then followed usual Čilić, loses the break in the next game and Djokovic finishes the match. Much problem Cilic made him with backhand slice, and Djokovic did not have the right answer for those strikes, so I still expect plenty of mixing and slices from the backhand side of Federer. Backhand was a big problem for Federer at the previous tournaments where he made a error after error, but at this tournament he is quite solid and I believe that with this game he can win set against Djokovic who is in phenomenal form. I believe that the real spectacle is waiting for us, I expect three sets. Good luck
