Paris Masters 2021: Novak Djokovic vs. Daniil Medvedev Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Paris Masters as Novak Djokovic takes on Daniil Medvedev in the final on Sunday, November 7th, 2021.

Who will win the 2021 Paris Masters? Novak Djokovic is seeking a record-extending sixth title in Bercy, while Daniil Medvedev looks poised to defend the crown he won last year. It was only fitting that the last Masters 1000 event on the calendar would pit the two best players in 2021 in another heavy-weight collision.

Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev have accounted for the four Grand Slam singles titles won in 2021. Djokovic, of course, won the first three, before Medvedev stopped history at the very last moment when he triumphed at the US Open. Defeat to the Russian in the final at Flushing Meadows left the World No. 1 with a bad taste. Djokovic took a couple months off to keep his sanity levels in check and recharge his batteries. His return to the court has been emphatic – almost as if he had not skipped a week. His motivation has been unquestionably brilliant and his tennis has gotten better with each round. Can he avenge the US Open final defeat to the Russian on Sunday?

Daniil Medvedev has been somewhat reluctant to assume top dog status. But he is catching up real fast. Medvedev fully merits his place as the ATP’s second-best performer in 2021, winning four titles including the aforementioned US Open in September. Medvedev has navigated his way out of a tricky draw at the Paris Masters to reach the championship match. He dropped one set in four matches, besting the likes of Ilya Ivashka, Sebastian Korda and Alexander Zverev. With a 54-11 record for the year, the unorthodox Russian has a chance to tie Stefanos Tsitsipas’s tour-leading 55 match wins in 2021. Can he upset Novak Djokovic for the second time in as many months?

Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev will go toe-to-toe for the 10th time in their series at the Paris Masters. Djokovic leads by the slenderest of margins – 5-4 to be precise. Remarkably, this will be their third successive meeting this year in which they will battle with the title on the line. It’s one-win apiece in 2021, with Djokovic winning in Melbourne and Medvedev emerging victorious at the US Open. This has been a surreal season for the Serbian star. It’s crazy to think he has won three Majors and still be a tad disappointed by his achievements this year. However, he is a once in a generation type of player and at 34 he has shown his humanly side in the last two months. Nonetheless, I expect Djokovic to come out all guns blazing in the final on Sunday. I think the weight of history deprived Djokovic of his best tennis in New York, you could almost feel it during the last changeover when he burst into tears. The scenario is completely different this time.
