These statistics give an indication of how much Draper will need to raise his level on the big occasions to compete with consistency and the clinical nature of Novak Djokovic’s game. One stat that Draper can take positive is the amount of second serve return points won and he will need to capitalise on those opportunities if he wants to test Djokovic on Monday.
Djokovic needs no introduction having just won Roland Garros, the world number one is in supreme form. Djokovic’s mental and physical ability mixed with how well he can redirect pace behind the baseline makes him the overwhelming favourite for the title and a 20th grand slam.
If Draper can draw on one thing it is that if there’s a time to take down a big player, then now is the time as Djokovic may need a few games to feel his way into his best form. The Brit will need to bring his big-hitting to a new consistency and will need to try and control his nerves on what will be the biggest match of his career. Whatever happens Draper will definitely learn something that can help his potential for the future but Djokovic should win comfortably after a slow start.
