Novak Djokovic Form
Eight-time champion Djokovic was always going to be the favourite for the Australian Open and is looking to win three in a row at Melbourne Park for the second time in 2021.
The world no. 1 has looked very good at the ATP Cup this past week, scoring hard-fought singles victories over Denis Shapovalov 7-5, 7-5 and Alexander Zverev 6-7(3), 6-2, 7-5.
Djokovic wasn’t quite able to keep Serbia’s ATP Cup title defence alive, losing the doubles with Nikola Cacic in a very close match tie-break to Zverev and Jan-Lennard Struff.
Even though Djokovic would probably have liked to get more matches in ahead of the Australian Open, two singles matches against two high-calibre opponents and two doubles matches (he also played with Filip Krajinovic against Canada) have probably put him in good frame.
Jeremy Chardy Stats

Height: 6’2” (188cm)
World Ranking: 66
Career High: 25 (January 2013)

Jeremy Chardy Form
A power player with a big serve, Chardy has posed problems for top players before, with the likes of Andy Murray, Juan Martin del Potro and (famously) Roger Federer among the top-10 players he’s beaten.
Most recently, he knocked Daniil Medvedev out of the 2019 Paris Masters.
Chardy also comes into the Australian Open on decent form, having reached the semifinals of both ATP Tour events he’s played so far in 2021 with wins over the likes of Fabio Fognini, Marin Cilic, Jan-Lennard Struff and Taylor Fritz.
The Frenchman made his solitary Grand Slam quarterfinal at the Australian Open in 2013. But an 0-13 head-to-head against Djokovic, in which time he’s failed to get a single set, is damning.
