No two players have met more on the ATP Tour than Novak Djokovic and Tim van Rijthoven. They will face each other for the first time at a Grand Slam when they meet in the fourth round of Wimbledon on July 3rd 2022.
Djokovic is the clear favourite to win the match, and he is also the favourite to win Wimbledon 2022 overall. Djokovic has won Wimbledon three times before, and he is coming off a dominant performance at the French Open. Djokovic has won all three of his matches at Wimbledon so far in straight sets, and he has only lost one set all tournaments.
Van Rijthoven is making his Wimbledon debut. The Dutchman has never been past the third round of a Grand Slam, and he has never played Djokovic before. Van Rijthoven has had a solid tournament so far, winning all three of his matches in straight sets. However, he has faced no one nearly as tough as Djokovic yet.

Djokovic has won all three of his matches at Wimbledon so far in straight sets, and he has only lost one set in all tournaments.
The odds are heavily against van Rijthoven, and it is hard to see him winning this match. Djokovic should win in straight sets.
This is tough to call, as both players are in fine form heading into Wimbledon 2022. Djokovic is the more experienced player and has won all three of their previous meetings, but van Rijthoven is a dangerous opponent on the grass.
The Dutchman has already beaten some big names this season, including Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka, so he will not be intimidated by Djokovic. That said, Djokovic is a master of Grass court tennis and he will be tough to beat.
Prediction: Djokovic in 3 sets.
This will be the first meeting between Djokovic and Van Rijthoven.
Novak Djokovic vs Tim van Rijthoven preview:
Djokovic is the clear favourite to win this match. He is a three-time Wimbledon champion and has reached the semi-finals or better at the All England Club nine times. The 35-year-old is amid one of the best stretches of his career, winning four of the last six Grand Slam. Djokovic has also won all three of his matches at Wimbledon this year, dropping just one set.
Meanwhile, Van Rijthoven is making his Wimbledon debut. The 25-year-old Dutchman has never played a match on grass. He has never faced a Top 10 player either. In fact, Van Rijthoven has only played two ATP Tour level matches in his career. He will be heavily outclassed in this match.
Djokovic is the -250 favorite (bet $250 to win $100), while Van Rijthoven is the +200 underdog (bet $100 to win $200). The men’s singles final at Wimbledon is scheduled for Sunday, July 3, 2022.
These two have never played each other before and it should be an excellent match. Djokovic is the better player, and he has the experience of playing in big matches like this, but Van Rijthoven is an excellent player and he will not be intimidated by Djokovic.
I think Djokovic will win this match, but it will be closer than the odds suggest. Djokovic is the better player, but Van Rijthoven is an excellent player and he will not be intimidated by Djokovic.
Novak Djokovic is the clear favorite in this matchup and should win in straight sets. However, Tim van Rijthoven is a talented junior player and could give Djokovic some trouble. The best bet is to take Djokovic to win in three sets.
