Will Hugo Dellien get the biggest win of his career and shock us all here at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics? Will Novak Djokovic begin his campaign for his first ever Gold Medal strongly as he aims to continue dominating the tennis world as he has done all of 2021? This will be an interesting match to see where Djokovic’s level is at on hard, will he cruise and make his way to the Round of 32 easily here at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics?
Hugo Dellien will be happy to representing his country of Bolivia here at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but he will also be disappointed with the fact that he has been drawn against the toughest player to beat in tennis right from the start, Novak Djokovic. Hugo Dellien has not really done much this year on the ATP Tour, only winning 1 match. Hugo Dellien mainly competes on the Challenger Tour and he will have to raise his level drastically coming into this match if he wants to even get a set under his belt. However, Novak will not give him anything easy, and Hugo will have to hope for a shocking performance by the Serb.
Novak Djokovic has been in amazing form in all of 2021, winning 34 matches and only losing 3! Novak has won all of the Grand Slams played this year, and he came to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics with the aim of winning the Gold Medal to set him up perfectly for the Golden Slam as he goes to the US Open next month. Novak is just a different beast compared to anyone in the tennis world and he will not waste any unnecessary time on court as he loves to ensure he recovers at his best after every match. Will he be rusty or dominate against Hugo Dellien?
Novak Djokovic and Hugo Dellien have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Hugo Dellien has nothing to lose coming into this match so he will give it his best shot. However, he has no big aspects to his game, having an average serve and an average baseline game. On the other hand, Novak is just the best at everything at the moment and he will not let Hugo get anything going in this match. Novak will come out here ready to show the rest of the draw that he is the benchmark and that he will continue raising his level throughout the rest of the matches here at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
