Novak Djokovic v Sam Querrey Live
Top seed Novak Djokovic will be up against Sam Querrey of the United States as the two go head to head in the third round of the US Open. The match will be played at the Flushing Meadows in New York on Saturday, August 30.
While Novak Djokovic came into the US Open in indifferent form, the Serbian has rose to the occasion at the grand slam event, just like he normally does. Novak Djokovic did not have any problems getting past Argentine Diego Schwartzman in the first round in straight sets and followed it up with a 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 defeat of Paul Henri-Mathieu in the second round to progress into the third round of the US Open. Novak Djokovic remains one of the few players in the tournament who is yet to drop a set to their opponents.
Sam Querrey’s start to the tournament was not as straightforward as the American’s first round match against Max Gonzalez went into the fifth set. Sam Querrey’s showed no nerves in the second round as he went on to beat Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 to make it to round 3.
The upcoming encounter will be the 9th in which the duo will meet. Novak Djokovic leads the head to head stats 7-1 and is looking strong to add to it when the pair square off at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Saturday.
