Djokovic vs Goffin (By: StarLion)
Wimbledon Q/F: Novak Djokovic vs David Goffin
I was willing to put Djokovic under 11.5 Aces but realised with Djokovic's excellent return game, the total under is safer.
I follow a lot of Aces and Double Fault stats in ATP as I realise there is more opportunity there.
The one thing I noticed about Djokovic is if he is in good rhythm, he doesn't actually hit too many aces. In the sense, the match has to be very hard for him to focus on his ace game, as he doesn't really require it. His ace count starts increasing when his natural game isn't giving him the points he wants or there is too much pressure on his service game.
When Djokovic is in rhythm and comfortable in a match, those matches tend to have even less than 14 aces.
Djokovic and Goffin know each other really well as they have been frequent practice partners. So none of them will really surprise each other. While Goffin is returning back to his very best and eyeing his first ever Grand Slam S/F it would take a gigantic effort to topple the World Number 1.
Can't see Goffin troubling Djokovic too much. The best players play better in the second week of a Slam. And it takes time to get used to playing in the Center Court when you haven't been there before.
