Prediction: 

In their third encounter, Novak Djokovic is poised to dominate Alexei Popyrin in straight sets. Djokovic, ranked no. 2, has shown exceptional form, easily advancing to the 3rd round with commanding victories over Vit Kopriva and Jacob Fearnley.

Popyrin, while resilient and aggressive with 82 winners in his five-set match against Tomas Martin Etcheverry, lacks the consistency and experience to challenge Djokovic on grass. Given Djokovic’s superior track record and current form, he is expected to secure a straight-sets victory in their Wimbledon clash.
