This should rightfully be the Dubai Tennis Championships final between the two most in-form players on the ATP tour but the winner of this semi-final will certainly be the title favourite on Saturday. World number one Novak Djokovic beat Hubert Hurkacz in straight sets on Thursday to go 20 matches unbeaten after winning the ATP Finals late last season as well as Adelaide 1 and a record-extending 10th Australian Open this year so far. The 35-year-old returned to the top of the sport after his record-equalling 22nd Grand Slam title in Melbourne and he set is own record at the very peak of the sport this week by becoming the first player to be number one for a total of 378 weeks – beating Steffi Graf’s once-thought insurmountable summit. World number seven Daniil Medvedev made it 12 wins on the spin himself after beating Borna Coric in straight sets on Thursday, backing-up a perfect February with two titles picked up in Rotterdam and Doha.
Djokovic and Medvedev have developed a fascinating rivalry on the ATP tour that was complemented wonderfully by a win apiece in Grand Slam finals back in 2021, with Djokovic beating Medvedev in three sets at the Australian Open and Medvedev returning the favour in New York. However, Medvedev has lost each of his last four meetings with Djokovic since his US Open title, taking sets in three of that number including the Astana Open final where he was forced to retire in the third. That makes backing Djokovic to win outright the sensible call here, particularly as Medvedev has improved significantly since their match in Adelaide in January.
