Djokovic recovered from a break down in both sets and converted all three break points he had to reach his first final since the Australian Open in January. The 15-time Grand Slam champion was very pleased with his performance and said this was the best match he played so far on the clay-court season.</p><p>Djokovic will next face No.8 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final of the Mutua Madrid Open. The 20-year-old claimed one of the biggest wins of his career on Saturday by beating five-time champion Rafael Nadal 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 in a match that ended close to midnight local time. Tsitsipas played unbelievably aggressive tennis from start, breaking Nadal’s serve six times and winning 24 out of 33 points at the net. The Greek superstar has now won eight consecutive matches on the ATP Tour and is guaranteed to climb to a new career-high ranking next week.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the second time in their careers with Tsitsipas emerging victorious in their previous encounter at the 2018 Rogers Cup in Toronto.</p><p>Despite Stefanos’ lead in their on their head-to-head, Djokovic is the main favourite to lift the trophy in Madrid at 9/25 (1.36) with <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill Today!">William Hill</a>. As mentioned above, Tsitsipas only ended his match with Nadal close to midnight, which means that he won’t have much time to recover for this final. On the other hand, Djokovic only played one match in the last two days and should be well rested for this final. With this in mind, adding Novak’s moneyline to an accumulator is an interesting approach, as well as placing a bet on his -3 game handicap at 73/100 (1.73) with <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a>.</p>
