Novak Djokovic v Marton Fucsovics Head to Head
The players have met three times on the tour thus far, with Djokovic wining on each occasion. Their most recent meeting was at the Wimbledon quarter-finals this year which the Serb won in straight sets en route a record equaling 20th Grand Slam trophy.
Djokovic Returns To Tour
World number one from Serbia, Novak Djokovic returns to the tour for the first time since his loss in the US Open final to Daniil Medvedev in early September.
The five-time Paris Masters title holder has said he needed the time off to rejuvenate after a successful season that saw him win the Aussie Open, French Open and Wimbledon but fall short of a Golden Grand Slam with a semi-final loss at the Tokyo Olympics to Alexander Zverev and a US Open final loss to Medvedev.
Djokovic is all but certain of ending the year as world number one for the seventh time in his career, which will be an all-time record.
The Serb has talked on the importance of ending what has been a strong season for him on a high with a good run here in Paris and at the ATP Tour Finals in Turin two weeks from now.
Korda Looking To Revive Form
Hungarian Marton Fucsovics had a splendid start to the season, finishing runner-up in Rotterdam and reaching the quarterfinals in Doha and Dubai before making his last eight debut at a Grand Slam at Wimbledon.
However, he lost his winning touch following his Wimbledon exploits, going 1-6 in the next six tournaments. Back in form at Antwerp two weeks ago, Fucsovics made the quarter-finals defeating Spanish veteran Roberto Bautista Agut en route.
However, a straight sets opening round loss against in-form Briton Cameron Norrie last week in Vienna would have served as a setback for Fucsovics.
After an easy first set win 6-1 against Italian veteran Fabio Fognini in the opener here, Fucsovics was in for a tussle and finally inched through in a decider setting himself up against the world number one from Serbia thereafter, Novak Djokovic.
Djokovic v Fucsovics Prediction and Tip
The world number one has been away from the tour for just under two months and is definitely short on match practice. However, he is up against an opponent he matches up well with and who is also in search of regaining form.
Expect a straight sets win for Djokovic that would start giving him the confidence needed for a deep run here this week.
