TennisSection previews the 2021 Davis Cup Finals as Jan-Lennard Struff takes on Dennis Novak in the Round Robin stage on Sunday, November 28th, 2021.
Which of these two players will be able to give their country some hope of making it to the Quarter-Finals here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals? Will it be the lower ranked but not to be underestimated Dennis Novak? Will it be the hard hitting and accurate Jan-Lennard Struff?
Dennis Novak lost quite easily in his opening match on Thursday here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals, losing to Novak Djokovic in straight sets. Unfortunately for Dennis, this year there is no Dominic Thiem to take the No.1 position in the team and this means that he has to face the toughest opponents all tournament. Dennis is mainly focusing on the Challenger Tour in his career and this experience is not enough to compete with the players in this group. Now, Dennis will have to give it one last push if he is to give Team Austria any chance of making it to the Quarter-Finals, but he meets a tough opponent in Jan-Lennard Struff.
As Dennis Novak did, Jan-Lennard Struff also lost to Novak Djokovic in 2 easy sets i his first match here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals. Jan-Lennard knows that he has the ability and the determination to lead Team Germany somewhat far here, but he will know that they have to work very hard on Sunday to make it to the Quarter-Finals. Jan-Lennard needs to ensure his serve is firing, so that he can minimize the number of balls that come back deep, allowing him to play his attacking style which he loves to do. Will he dominate or will it be tight against Dennis Novak?
Jan-Lennard Struff and Dennis Novak have met 2 times before, with Jan-Lennard Struff leading the head to head 2-0. They have only met in the Challenger Tour and in qualifying rounds of tournaments, and adding to this, they last met in 2016. Dennis Novak is a good player on his day, but he is nowhere near the level to compete consistently with mainstay players of the ATP Tour. If Dennis gets anything out of this match I would be shocked as Jan-Lennard Struff should dominate from start to finish and give Team Germany Quarter-Final hopes here at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals.
