Novak Djokovic is a hot favourite to win yet another ATP title when he plays the promising Karen Khachanov later today and we take a look at the match from a betting angle.
Karen Khachanov v Novak Djokovic
Unseeded Khachanov continued his excellent run for form by easily disposing of 6th seed Thiem 6-4 & 6-1 in his semi-final. He had previously beaten Alexander Zverev the 4th seed, 6-1 and 6-2 in the last 8 and the only set he has dropped was against Isner in the last 16
His opponent is Novak Djokovic, the 2nd seed, who came through a marathon 3-setter to beat his great rival Federer 7-6,5-7 &7-6. He also required 3 sets to beat Cilic in the quarter-finals, 4-6, 6-2 and 6-3 and his opponent Dzumhur retired in the second set of his last 16 match.
These 2 have met once on tour with Djokovic winning in straight sets at Wimbledon earlier this year.

Karen Khachanov 4/1
Novak Djokovic 1/6
Suggested Bet: Khachanov games over 9.5 at 15/20
Khachanov has blown away 2 of the worlds top players and while I am going to stop shot of backing him at 4/1 to beat Djokovic I am looking for him to collect at least 10 games in the match.
