Novak Djokovic is the best men’s tennis player in the world. Why he showed Jenson Brooksby again that he won 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2 in the quarterfinals of the US Open.
But it was quite surprising that Djokovic shot the open set to Brooksby. People were shocked when they first gathered around Brooksby. That didn’t go down well with Djokovic:
But whoever Djokovic is, he came back and won the next three sets. What could have been more surprising was that Djokovic turned the crowd to his side to end the night.
Djokovic also received a standing ovation when he defeated Brooksby.
In the past, Djokovic didn’t exactly love Flushing Meadows. In fact, after his first return match, Djokovic did not hold a celebration because he thought the crowd was squirming. Of course, on Monday, you can give it to the majority who support the American Brooksby.
Djokovic said only positive things about Brooksby after the match.
“He disguises his shots very well and has a lot of talent … he’s only 20 years old, so he has a lot of time ahead of him,” Djokovic said.
Now Djokovic will play No. 6 Matteo Berrettini in Wednesday’s quarterfinals as the 21st Grand Slam title is set for a record.
