Paris Masters 2021: Novak Djokovic vs. Marton Fucsovics Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Paris Masters as Novak Djokovic takes on Marton Fucsovics in the Round of 32 on Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021.

Will Novak Djokovic get the win? Will Marton Fucsovics pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have the number one player in the world returning to the tour with a tough opponent. Who will move on to the Round of 16 at the 2021 Paris Masters?

Novak Djokovic hasn’t been seen in a match since the US Open final, where he finished runner up to Daniil Medvedev in a heartbreaker. He hasn’t played in a while, and mentally he may feel a little drained after the incredible year he’s had. Still, he has all the success he has had for a reason, and I expect him to get the win against Marton Fucsovics for sure. He’s been known to lose a lot of sets en route to all his wins this year, and it’s possible that he could drop a set here, as Novak tends to do that sometimes and he hasn’t played in a while. Still, his level of play is just so unfathomably high, it’s almost impossible to expect anything aside from a straight sets victory for Djokovic as he aims to kick off his campaign with a good match to progress to the Round of 16 at the 2021 Paris Masters.

Marton Fucsovics got a great win over Fabio Fognini, taking him down in 3, 7-6 (5) in the third. He now has a much tougher match ahead of him in Novak Djokovic. In order to have a shot at taking him out, he will have to play really aggressively. That’s really the only way you can beat Djokovic unless it’s not his day. Fucsovics actually does have the type of game where he can launch winners from anywhere on the court, playing aggressively at all times. However, to be able to do that consistently, let alone against the greatest defender tennis has ever seen, seems like a practically impossible feat. Let’s see if Fucsovics can challenge Djokovic for a place in the next round at the 2021 Paris Masters.

Novak Djokovic and Marton Fucsovics have met 3 times before, with Novak Djokovic leading the head to head 3-0. Their meetings came in 2018, 2019, and this year at Wimbledon. In their first 2 meetings, Fucsovics did manage to take a set both times, proving he has the ability to push Djokovic a little bit. Ultimately though, Fucsovics has little stability, and you need a lot of that if you want to be able to even think of taking on Djokovic. At Wimbledon, Djokovic easily cruised past him in straight sets, while it may not be the same this time as it was then simply due to the special circumstances of Djokovic’s return, I fully expect Djokovic to take him out convincingly to head through to the Round of 16 at the 2021 Paris Masters.
