Djokovic Continues Calendar Slam Quest

World number one Novak Djokovic continues his quest for two unique records, i.e to be complete the calendar slam and break  the three-way tie he is in right now for 20 titles with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

It has been a phenomenal year for the Serb, who won the Aussie Open (defeating Medvedev), French Open (defeating Tsitsipas) and Wimbledon (defeating Berrettini) and in turn set himself up for a shot at the Golden Grand Slam in an Olympic year.

While he lost to eventual gold medalist Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals of the Tokyo Olympics , he has talked about being even more motivated this fortnight to scalp the calendar slam.

The Serb started his campaign against Grand Slam debutante and 18-year-old Holger Rune from Denmark and it looked like a clinical Djokovic match as he clinched the opener 6-1.

The teenager broke early in the second and although the world number one broke back immediately, the set headed for a tiebreak which was won 7-5 by Rune.

There was no looking back for Djokovic after that as he came out all guns blazing in the third, and aided by a Rune leg injury, closed the next two matches dropping only three games and booking a spot in the second round, continuing his quest for more greatness.

Big Struff Win For Griekspoor

Dutch Tallon Griekspoor has been on the tour since 2017, and held a 5-12 record on the ATP tour coming into the US Open. Two of these wins have come against Stan Wawrinka and Karen Khachanov, at his home tourney, i.e the ATP 500 at Rotterdam.

His only major appearances thus far have been the 2020 Australian Open and Wimbledon earlier this year failing to get past the opener in either.

Griekspoor has not met with much success this year except a few opening round wins at Montpellier, Acapulco and Barcelona and hopes the remainder of the season brings better results for him.

Facing Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany in the opener here, one did not give the Dutchman much of a chance, but Griekspoor came back from being down two sets to one to close the match in a five-set battle, in turn winning his first ever match at a major.

Djokovic v Griekspoor Prediction and Tip

Griekspoor from the Netherlands is coming off a big win against German Struff but the magnitude of the opposition is of a different level here.

Expect Djokovic to brush off any signs of rust from the opener and close this one in straight sets.
