Djokovic vs Muller by Iniestaone
I think a lot of people have considered betting on Muller here to cover the handicap line but I don't think he will. Djokovic did not have a good time in Asia as he only played Shanghai where he defeated Fognini and Pospisil in straight sets (without convincing), M. Zverev in three to then lose to Bautista-Agut 4-6 4-6 in the semis.
Muller is coming off an expected straight set win against Almagro. He had a surface advantage over Almagro, the same advantage Djokovic will have against him. He is in fine form but his main weapon, his serve (and volley), is not that big of a weapon on these slow courts in Paris. Djokovic also has a big advantage in rallies as the ball bounces high and its harder to hit winners.
Muller has covered the handicap line in each and every one of his 3 meetings with Djokovic but this time it'll be different, this hardcourt is slower than the ones in Australia and Toronto where they've played before and I expect Djokovic to be fired up and win this in two quick sets. He's not a slow starter like other top tier players.
