• Djokovic begins US Open title defense

    8/27/12 12:00 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Djokovic begins US Open title defense World No. 2 Novak Djokovic will kick off his campaign at Flushing Meadows in the bottom section of the draw, sharing a quarter with 2009 champion Juan Martin Del Potro.

    Djokovic's first few rounds should be routine. The Serb's first-round opponent will be Italian clay-courter Paolo Lorenzi. His first test would be a possible third round encounter with Julien Benneteau and a round of 16 showdown with either Stanislas Wawrkina or Alexandr Dolgopolov.

    Del Potro has a first-round blockbuster against countryman David Nalbandian, but the Argentine is struggling with a sore left wrist and could have difficulty because of it.

    Andy Roddick, who is ranked 20th in the world, also sits in Del Potro's section of the draw, ready to take advantage if the Argentine is not fully over the wrist pain.

    Prediction - Djokovic has a few tests in his section, but there should be no surprises in the bottom quarter.
