NEW YORK – Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic advanced to the singles semifinals at the final grand slam tournament of the US Open season. In New York, he eliminated Italian Matteo Berrettini, who finished sixth 5: 7, 6: 2, 6: 2, 6: 3, and only two victories separate him from winning the calendar Grand Slam.

The world leader has lost the opening set in the third Flushing Meadows match in a row and nine times at the Big Four events this season. He made seventeen unforced mistakes in it, but in the next three acts only eleven in total, and in 3 hours and 26 minutes he made it to his twelfth New York semifinal.

He has a 26-0 grand slam tournament this year, winning trophies at the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon. If he added the title to the US Open, he would become the first male holder of the calendar Grand Slam since 1969. In the past, only American Don Budge (1938) and Australian Rod Laver (1962, 1969) have been able to do so. Thirty-four-year-old Djokovic is also attacking the 21st grand slam title. He would beat the record that he currently holds with the Swiss Roger Federer and the Spaniard Rafael Nadal.

Zverev wants to repeat Tokyo

Deployed fourth, Alexander Zverev rides the 16-game winning streak, which he beat Wednesday’s victory over Lloyd Harris of South Africa 7: 6 (6), 6: 3, 6: 4. During this series, the German also defeated Djokovic, in Tokyo he was eliminated in the semifinals 1: 6, 6: 3, 6: 1 on the way to the Olympic gold.

Harris got the start of the match with Zverev. At 4: 3, after the winning return, he broke the German serve and went to serve for the victory in the set. However, the game equalized to 5: 5 and forced the secretary. Harris led 6: 5 in it and had the advantage of service, but the ending belonged to Zverev. The Olympic champion from Tokyo got on a horse and at the beginning of the second act he built a decisive lead 3: 0 after a quick break.

Zverev had a high percentage of success in the first serve, making fewer unforced errors in exchanges. At the beginning of the third set, he bounced Harris to 4-0. The South African still reduced to 3: 4, but Zverev has already reached the elite quartet and stretched the winning streak to 16 matches. “I’m glad it was in three sets. Lloyd played and at the end of the third set he started performing unreal blows. The 4: 3 game was important, in which I averted the breakball and kept the service,” Zverev said in the first reaction. For Harris, participating in the quarterfinals is already a life success at one of the Big Four events.

Men’s Singles Quarterfinals:

Novak Djokovic (Srb.-1) – Matteo Berrettini (Tal.-6) 5: 7, 6: 2, 6: 2, 6: 3
