Novak Djokovic advanced to the US Open semifinals with a convincing win over Taylor Fritz, boasting scores of 6-1, 6-4, 6-4. This victory brings Djokovic a step closer to tying Margaret Court’s record by winning his 24th Grand Slam title.
Despite the heat, Djokovic remained focused, maintaining an unbeaten record against American players at the US Open. Fritz could not match Djokovic’s performance, converting only two break opportunities and making 51 unforced errors. Thanks to the crowd’s support, Djokovic is set to play the matchup winner between Frances Tiafoe and Ben Shelton.
In the women’s category, Coco Gauff 19 became the youngest American to reach the semifinals since Serena Williams in 2001 by defeating Jelena Ostapenko 6-0, 6-2. Despite some scheduling complaints, the 2023 US Open promises high-stakes and unpredictable matches, with Djokovic and Gauff showcasing their potential for championship victories.
