The US Open begins, the last Grand Slam of the season, and the expectation to see the best tennis in the world reignites. In this edition, Novak Djokovic, who will go in search of a Budge and Laver record, you will also try to reach a new high in your career.
The Serbian, in case of having a prosperous tournament, he can become the second tennis player in the Open Era to be more effective in the Grand Slam and thus surpass Rafael Nadal.
Until now, Bjorn Borg is the leader in this statistic. With 141 victories and 16 defeats, he maintains an 89.81% effectiveness.
Currently, the escort is Nadal, which boasts 291 wins and 41 lost matches, which translates into 87.65%.
Third is Djokovic, who has 317 wins and 45 losses (87.57%) in Grand Slam during his career.
That is to say, with Nole winning three games at the US Open, he would reach an 87.67% ERA, which would immediately surpass Nadal.
It should be remembered that the Spanish will not be part of the game in this edition, since he announced that he will be low for the rest of the season.
