Novak Djokovic looks to win his 61st match of the season and earn a spot in the U.S. Open quarterfinals on Monday. Up next for the world No. 1 is Alexandr Dolgopolov.
Novak Djokovic is being relegated to Louis Armstrong Stadium on Monday afternoon. If Djokovic is mad about it, Alexandr Dolgopolov will be hoping the world No. 1 does not take his anger out on him.
After all, Djokovic is already beating people bad enough heading into this U.S. Open fourth-round encounter that will be played on the tournament's second biggest court. The top seed got a retirement after 44 minutes from Conor Niland, lost two games in three sets to Carlos Berlocq, then trounced Nikolay Davydenko 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 on Saturday night.
With the three victories, Djokovic is now an incredible 60-2 for his 2011 campaign. Although he retired in the Cincinnati final to Andy Murray last moth, the Serb is clearly back in fine form with no apparent shoulder issues.
Dolgopolov has emerged with a bang at 22 years old. The Ukrainian cooled off slightly following a torrid start to the year, but he could be ready to produce the same early-season tennis. After dismissing Frederico Gil and Flavio Cipolla, Dolgopolov took down an in-form Ivo Karlovic in four sets.
If nothing else, the points and shot-making in this one should be electric. Regardless, Djokovic in three sets is the obvious choince.
