Novak Djokovic’s quest to make a sweep of all the Grand Slam titles in 2021 is still alive, but there have been signs of pressure.

He had a really poor start to his Fourth Round match. But as Djokovic does, he finds ways to win.

Next in his path is Italian star Matteo Berrettini. Could he be the one to stop Djokovic?

Novak Djokovic Preview – Djokovic stays on track

It is four successful matches down for Novak Djokovic at the 2021 US Open.

But surprisingly, he has dropped a set in three of those fixtures.

In the Fourth Round, Djokovic dropped the first set against Jenson Brooksby 6-1.

It was a nightmare of a first set performance from Djokovic really.

But as he had done in the Third Round after dropping the opening set against Kei Nishikori, Djokovic fought back hard.

Once he found his rhythm, Djokovic closed out the rest of the match against Brooksby comfortably.

In the match tonight for US Open tennis betting, Djokovic is 1/9 odds on favourite* (odds taken 16:51 GMT 7th September 2021 at Betfair).

He is, it’s worth noting, taking on Berrettini who is ranked 8th in the world at the moment.

Our betting prediction:
Berrettini to win first set

* (odds taken 16:51 GMT 7th September 2021 at betfair)


Djokovic is a three-time US Open champion, but it’s the Slam at which he generally receives the least amount of love from the crowd.

He is seeking his first title at Flushing Meadows since 2018.

If he gets it, he will pull off the Calendar Year Slam having already won the other three Slams this year.

This is Djokovic’s first tournament since winning the Wimbledon Final.

So he came to New York, fresh without any hard court action behind him aside from the Olympics in which he failed to take a medal.

Maybe that has played a little part in his slips of dropping sets.

The Djokovic 3-1 set betting option for this match is at 13/5* (odds taken 16:51 GMT 7th September 2021 at Betfair).


Matteo Berrettini Preview – Can Berrettini stop Djokovic?

US Open 6th seed Matteo Berrettini basically gets the Quarter Final draw that no one wants.

He has to face up to Djokovic and the Italian has had his own wobbles in New York.

Berrettini won his opening match of the tournament in straight sets, clinching two of those on a tie-break.

In each of his three subsequence matches, Berrettini has dropped at least one set.

Lining up against Djokovic on Wednesday, Berrettini meets a seeded player for the first time in this draw.

In the match outright for tennis betting, Berrettini is the big 11/2 underdog* (odds taken 16:51 GMT 7th September 2021 at Betfair).

He is going to have a lot on his plate, especially with his defences having already been firmly tested in this run.

Earlier this year, Berrettini had the biggest moment of his Grand Slam career.

Matteo Berrettini reached the final of Wimbledon where he was stopped by Djokovic.

The Italian did reach the Semi Finals of the 2019 US Open and has reached at least the Fourth Round in each of his last four Slams.

So he is on the up in this sphere of things.

But can he do enough to get the better of Djokovic and earn some revenge for Wimbledon?

It is a little hard to see that happening.

That Wimbledon meeting was his third match against Djokovic and Berrettini has lost all three.

Two of those defeats have happened this year.
