Second act for Novak Djokovic, No. 1 in the world, in this US Open gone through water. In search of the GrandSlam, given that He won the three Major of the year and wants all four and also aims to achieve the record of 21, the Serbian appears against Tallon Griekspoor in the first turn of the night session and it can be followed from 8pm on ESPN on STAR +.
This US Open is so special because Djokovic has just been crowned in 2021 at the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon and He claims to be the first man in 52 years, since the Australian Rod Laver in 1969, to win all four Grand Slam in the same season. If he takes the title at the US Open, then he will be the second in the professional era to achieve that feat.
While, the Serbian is going for another historical feat: surpassing the 20 Major of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Both the Swiss and the Spanish won two dozen Grand Slam races in their careers, while Djokovic had started 2021 with 17, but thanks to his successes in Melbourne, Paris and London he reached them. That is why he wants to get 21st and be the most winning male of all.
There is no precedent for the Dutchman (121st) who achieved a magnificent five-set victory over Jan-Lennard Struff on his tournament debut. This was also the first win in a main draw at Slams.
He is going for the second of the seven victories he is looking for at the US Open to achieve the double feat and go much more in history.
