Novak Djokovic got his campaign to win a fourth U.S. Open, and 18th Grand Slam title overall, off to a flying start on Monday by beating Damir Dzumhur 6-1 6-4 6-1 to advance to the second round. Djokovic broke Dzumhur’s serve for a seventh time to seal the win in the first night match on Arthur Ashe Stadium court. Because of pandemic (COVID 19), lots of people were not there to enjoy the match.
Dzumhur, who hails from Bosnia and Herzegovina, had no answer to the world number one’s blistering serve and vigorous defense in a match that lasted just under two hours. It was not so easy for him committing 41 unforced errors and eight double faults to fall to 0-3 against Djokovic. With the win, the Serbian, who won his fourth title of the year at the Western & Southern Open on Saturday, improved to 24-0 on the season. Djokovic is next meeting with Briton Kyle Edmund in the second round, who won from Alexander Bublik in four sets. Got the advantage to Djokovic to hold 5-1 points in their head-to-head meetings.
