Novak Djokovic News & Form
The World No. 1 had some problems to outlast Hubert Hurkacz in the round of 32, dropping a set against the World No. 48, but Djokovic cruised through the round of 16 on Monday. Novak smashed the World No. 66 Ugo Humbert in straight sets, allowing no break points to his rival while tallying 25 winners and just 14 unforced errors.
Djokovic started the season with his seventh title at Australian Open. The four-time Wimbledon champ came to London off a semifinal loss at Roland Garros and with a 28-6 record in 2019. Novak is 69-10 at Wimbledon and 92-18 on the grass court in his career.
David Goffin News & Form
After a narrow five-set victory over the 11th-seeded Daniil Medvedev in the round of 32, David Goffin defeated Fernando Verdasco in four sets in the round of 16 on Monday. The 28-year old Belgian had 17 winners and 20 unforced errors fewer than Verdasco, but Goffin played at the highest level in crucial moments to fully deserve his place in the quarterfinal.
For the first time in his career, Goffin is among the last eight at Wimbledon where he has a 12-6 record. Also, David is 24-18 on the grass court in his career. He lost to Roger Federer in the championship match in Halle this season, while Goffin is 22-15 in 2019.
Djokovic vs Goffin Head to Head
Novak Djokovic won five of his six meetings with David Goffin who won their previous head-to-head duel in Monte Carlo on the clay court back in 2017. In his five wins over Goffin, Djokovic dropped just a set.

Our Djokovic vs Goffin Wimbledon 2019 Tournament Betting Tip
David Goffin will have a mountain to climb against Novak Djokovic on the grass court. Goffin is playing in a good form at the moment, but he doesn’t have enough firepower in his game to endanger Novak at Wimbledon.
Hereof, I think Djokovic will beat Goffin in straight sets, but the odds on my best bet are not attractive at all. You can take Djokovic to cover a 2.5-set handicap at 4/9 with William Hill. If you want greater wages, you will have to take a risk. Betting on the total games is always a tricky job in a match like this one, but taking the under 32.5 games at 8/11 with Betway seems like a reasonable choice.
