US Open 2021: Djokovic could match a Roger Federer's record

Three matches towards history for world no.1 Novak Djokovic. The Serbian champion beat the young American Jenson Brooksby in the night and after this success he enters the quarter-finals, three races from the history of tennis.

If successful at the US Open Nole would become the first player of the Open era to conquer the Grand Slam, an event that hasn't occurred since Rod Laver and that many legends of the past (and present) have missed. This but not only for Novak Djokovic.

The tennis player with the victory of the tournament would also win the twenty-first Slam, definitively overcoming the two great rivals and components of the Big Three, namely Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The records of the Serbian champion are growing week after week, month after month and all his fans are in awe of his numbers.

This season the number one in the world appeared almost unbeatable and the only real hard defeat to digest is the one at the Tokyo Olympics where he first lost the semifinal to Alexander Zverev and then lost, surprisingly, also the challenge for the medal.

bronze medal against the Spanish tennis player Pablo Carreno Busta.

Djokovic and yet another record of his career

Against Brooksby the success came in a more complicated way than expected with the American who literally dominated the first set and who collapsed at a distance, probably tired even after the marathon the other day against the Russian Aslan Karatsev.

With this victory for Nole there are 79 successes here in Flushing Meadows and the Serbian reaches yet another small satisfaction in his career. At 79 victories here at the US Open there is a tennis legend like the American Andre Agassi, among other things, his former coach in the past.

With this result Nole is third in the ranking of the most successful tennis players in New York and targets his great rival Roger Federer, stopped at 89 (In the next two season he can definitely matches this Roger Federer's record).

More detached and perhaps unreachable for anyone other American Jimmy Connors, first in this particular ranking with 98 wins at Flushing Meadows.
