Out of the 4 games so far, Jannik Sinner has managed to beat Novak Djokovic only once, the latest in the Nitto ATP Finals 2023 Round 3. There has been seen an epic rivalry on the Indoor hard court, so the recent performance of Jannik has proved that he can beat Novak Djokovic on the top tennis tour events.
In my opinion, Novak Djokovic must not be taken for granted and he is a tough guy to beat on any surface. He is 36 and has achieved what most tennis players could not throughout his life. So, if they faced each other in the Australian Open, it would be a 60-40 battle in favour of Novak Djokovic because Novak loves playing in the Australian Open.
