The only year which wasn’t the case came last year when Argentine Juan Martin del Potro defeated Federer to win the title.While Federer won in 2017, Djokovic was the reigning three-time champion from 2014-2016.
The 2019 Australian Open winner enters the Paribas Open as the top seed of the tournament. He does face a potentially tricky matchup in the third round, should 33rd rated Nick Kyrgios advance.
Kyrgios lately went quite the run at the Mexican Open on his way to winning the title last week. His championship comprised an upset over Nadal in the Round of 16, until a straight sets win over world no. 3 Alexander Zverev.
Kyrgios is also 2-0 lifetime against Djokovic, although the two wins came back in 2017. What could potentially await in the fourth round is really a match against Rotterdam winner Gael Monfils or Argentina winner Marco Cecchinato.
The next highest ranked player in the first quarter is ranked Dominic Thiem. Thiem reached the semis of the Argentina Open last month, prior to making a quick exit in round one by the Rio Open.
Should Thiem meet Djokovic from the quarter-finals, he’ll be confident in knowing he has conquered the Serb in their previous two games.
