Astana Open 2022: Novak Djokovic vs. Cristian Garin Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Astana Open as Novak Djokovic takes on Cristian Garin in the first round on Wednesday, October 5th, 2022.

Straight from Tel Aviv, Novak Djokovic will be on the next flight to Nur-Sultan as he plays back-to-back ATP tournaments for the first time since May. The Serbian star is set to make his debut appearance at the Astana Open and will open up against Chilean No. 1 Cristian Garin likely on Tuesday.

At the time of writing, Novak Djokovic is scheduled to play in the final of the Tel Aviv Open as he looks to win his third title of the season. The Serbian former World No. 1 has not played regularly this season, largely due to his vaccination status against Covid-19. But that hasn’t stopped him from bagging yet another Grand Slam title at Wimbledon and could end the year with the fewest number of defeats in a calendar year in his career. Djokovic is the fourth seed at the Astana Open where he is slated to meet Cristian Garin possibly on Tuesday evening.

Cristian Garin, meanwhile, has not played a lot of tennis lately, with his four-set defeat in the second round of the US Open to De Minaur being his last outing. That is precisely a month ago and the Chilean is getting a really tough draw at the Astana Open right out of the gate. Garin has only ever played 12 matches on indoor hard courts and won four of them. It will certainly be a tall order for him to pick up any sort of win on Tuesday against Djokovic.

Novak Djokovic leads Cristian Garin 2-0 in their head-to-head. He last defeated the Chilean in the Round of 16 of Wimbledon last year en route to the title. With Federer no longer part of the ATP roster, Djokovic is now the undisputed King of indoor hard courts among active players. He should get his Astana Open debut off to a flyer here.
