Novak Djokovic cruises past Nikolay Davydenko in straight sets on Saturday at the U.S. Open. Djokovic advances to a fourth-round clash against Alexandr Dolgopolov.
Novak Djokovic resumed his dominance at the U.S. Open with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory over Nikolay Davydenko during third-round action on Saturday night. Djokovic rolled in two hours and seven minutes to improve his 2011 record to 60-2.
The top-ranked Serb did not finish with the best of stats--17 winners and 22 unforced errors--but he turned in another convincing performance and dropped serve only once. After Davydenko broke to get back on serve for 3-4 in the first set, Djokovic broke right back and rolled the rest of the way.
"I had some ups and downs," Djokovic said afterward, "but it's the first test I've had this tournament and it was expected. I was aware of his quality. Davydenko is a great player; he knows how to play majors. He went out there and played his game, very aggressive. But when I needed to adjust I did and I got crucial breaks each set. The third set was better."
Next up for Djokovic is Alexandr Dolgopolov, a four-set winner over Ivo Karlovic.
