World number one Novak Djokovic has revealed that he is more focused on his next opponent, Alexander Zverev in the semi final and not setting a calendar Grand Slam record.
Recall that the Serbian advanced to the semifinals of the US Open tournament after defeating Italian Matteo Berrettini 3-1 (5-7, 6-2, 6-2, 6-3) in the quarterfinals.
By defeating Matteo Berrettini, Djokovic achieved his 224th victory over Top 10 players, a statistic where he also has 101 defeats. He overtook
Roger Federer who achieved 223 victories and has 123 defeats.
He said: “He’s in tremendous form, he’s been winning a lot. After Wimbledon I don’t think he’s lost a match,” Djokovic said. “Winning gold in the Olympics, winning in Cincinnati pretty comfortably, he moved into the semi-finals here… We played a month ago in Tokyo. I was a set and a break up and he managed to turn that around.
“[It’s the] semi-finals of a Grand Slam right now, he’s one of the best players in the world and I’m pumped. The bigger the challenge the more glory in overcoming it.”
