Novak Djokovic v Diego Schwartzman Live
World number one Novak Djokovic will begin his assault on the US Open 2014 with a first round clash against Argentine Diego Sebastian Schwartzman. Novak Djokovic is the top seeded player for the US Open men’s tournament and is expected to be able to get past Diego Sebastian Schwartzman quite easily.
Novak Djokovic has been in great form in grand slam events this year. At the Australian Open, Novak Djokovic was taken down in the quarter finals by eventual champion Stanislas Wawrinka while he reached the final of the French Open at Roland Garros only to be undone by the king of clay, Rafael Nadal. Novak Djokovic made up for his frustrations at these tournaments by winning the Wimbledon this year after he beat Roger Federer in the finals.
Novak Djokovic’s performance in the two hard court competitions that he has featured in post the Wimbledon have been thoroughly unimpressive. He has gone out of the second round at Canada and went out of the same stage at Cincinnati.
Diego Schwartzman will have a tough time adjusting to the hard courts at the US Open this year as he has not had adequate preparation for the grand slam event. All three of the last tournaments that he has featured in have been played on clay courts and although he won the Prague Challenger, the Argentine has suffered first and second round exits in the other two tournaments. This should be a pretty straightforward win for Novak Djokovic.
