We might have an exciting 2nd round in at the upcoming ATP1000 in Madrid as Novak Djokovic and Grigor Dimitrov are on an early collision course.

Novak Djokovic

Nole is trying to recover after a not so great stint after his triumph in Melbourne, The world no.1 appears extremely nervous, and he seems to have lost his trademark self-confidence. After the Australian Open, Djokovic lost in the 3rd round in Indian Wells, in the 4th in Miami and the quarters in Monte Carlo. This is Nole’s projected path in Madrid

R1 – Bye
R2 – Dimitrov
R3 – Cecchinato
1/4 – Del Potro
1/2 – Federer/Thiem

Grigor Dimitrov

Currently ranked no.49, the Bulgarian is still looking to get into the right groove to improve his rankings. Grigor has a 9-5 win-loss record in 2019 (3-2 on clay). His projected path is similar to Djokovic’s.

R1 – Qualifier
R2 – Djokovic
R3 – Cecchinato
1/4 – Del Potro
1/2 – Federer/Thiem

Head to head Novak Djokovic vs. Grigor Dimitrov

This would be the 10th time that Nole and Grigor would play each other. The head to head is 8-1 for Djokovic, but the only match that Grigor won against the Serbian was in Madrid back in 2013, and the score was 7-6 (6) 6-7 (8) 6-3.
