Monte-Carlo Draw: Taylor Fritz Could Become Novak Djokovic’s Savior As Young Italian Nightmare Waits For The Kill

The fans highly anticipate the upcoming Monte Carlo Masters, as Novak Djokovic is gearing up to lace his shoes after a brief break. The Serbinator changed his schedule by skipping the recent tournament in Miami and, therefore, took time to be with his family. As the clay court tournament will commence in a few hours, a new challenge awaits as an alarming danger for him.

The Monte Carlo Masters sets high anticipation levels as fans eagerly await Novak Djokovic’s return to the court. However, the newly released draws indicate an approaching concern for the Serb that only Taylor Fritz can waive off. The danger alarm rings in the form of Lorenzo Musetti, an Italian tennis sensation who has been a tough competitor for Djokovic.

In the round of 64 of the upcoming tournament, Taylor Fritz is set to face off against Musetti. This match holds significant implications for Djokovic as it determines his next opponent. When we examine the past encounters between Musetti and the Serbian player, it becomes evident that the Italian has consistently posed a formidable challenge, particularly on clay surfaces.

In the 2023 edition of the tournament, Musetti ended Djokovic’s run for the title in a thrilling three-set encounter. Besides that, Musetti further pushed Djokovic to the limit in a gripping five-set battle back at the French Open 2021. Although Novak Djokovic received a walkover, the Italian wonder kid took him to the fifth set.

If Fritz manages to overcome Musetti in the upcoming showdown, it could be a relief for Djokovic. By eliminating Musetti from the equation, Fritz would not only spare Djokovic from facing a formidable competitor but also boost his chances of pursuing the targets locked in for the clay court season.

Novak Djokovic’s path is filled with formidable opponents

Besides the chances of a showdown against Lorenzo Musetti, Novak Djokovic has many other tough opponents on his run for the title in Monte Carlo. The Serb, who recently parted ways with his long-time coach Goran Ivanisevic, has a high chance of facing Alex De Minaur.

However, the matchup against the Aussie comes with a catch. Before reaching a stage where he finds himself against De Minaur, Djokovic will have to face Carlos Alcaraz, an opponent who has stunned him quite a few times lately.
