There is now just over a week left for the start of the US Open, the fourth Grand Slam of the year and one of the last Major events of this season. In just over three weeks, all tennis fans will know if Novak Djokovic has succeeded in winning the Grand Slam.
In case of victory in Flushing Meadows, the Serbian champion will become the first player of the Open era to win all four Grand Slams in the same year and the first since Rod Laver; in addition to this Nole would detach Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the fight at the Grand Slams and could thus take another small step forward in the now historical fight that leads to the GOAT.
It will be a particular event and in the last few days it has brought several criticisms: if on the one hand the US Open will take place with the public, the choice of making the qualifiers for the tournament behind closed doors was not appreciated, a choice that made quite more noise than expected.
Marion Bartoli on Novak Djokovic
At the moment no announcement has been made after these controversies but it must be said that in any case it will be a step forward compared to last year when Naomi Osaka and Dominic Thiem triumphed and conquered the US Open without being able to celebrate with the presence of the crowd.
At the US Open Novak Djokovic has the opportunity to further enter the history of tennis and there are many predictions regarding the Balkan champion. Former Slam champion Marion Bartoli talked thus about the upcoming tournament in New York.
Here are the words of her to the microphones of Tennis Majors: "I don't understand when we talk about Novak Djokovic as the big favorite, he is THE FAVORITE for me. Compared to other tournaments, the Slams are simpler for him, he has time to think after each victory and especially given his age, he has more time to rest for the next match.
For Novak Djokovic it is really important to be the first to win the 21st title of the Slam and above all so he will make the Grand Slam "
