World No.1 Novak Djokovic held his nerves to pull off a breath-taking victory over long-time rival Andy Murray in the last-eight stage of the United States Open Tennis Championships. And what follows immense hard-work? "My thoughts are just directed to sleeping right now," Djokovic was quoted as saying by ESPN after the grueling 3-hour and 32-minute encounter.
"Or party. What do you say? Let's party. I think my coach right there would chase me with a little baseball bat if he saw me going to the city to party right now," the Serb further quipped. Who's next? The top seed now moves on to the semifinals of the Open, where he has been scheduled to lock horns with Japanese prodigy Kei Nishikori for a berth in the summit clash.
"We haven’t played against each other for a while," ATPWorldTour quoted Djokovic as saying. "He’s a very talented player who has been Top 10. He’s very fast all over the court and serves well for his height.
