US Open Tennis: Djokovic Gears Up For 2021 Grand Slam Clean Sweep

Tennis fans can look forward to exclusive coverage of the fourth and final tennis Grand
Slam of 2021, the US Open, live from the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in
New York from 30 August to 12 September exclusive to SuperSport on DStv.
The major narrative from the US Open is whether Novak Djokovic can win the Men’s
Singles tournament and claim a clean sweep of the Grand Slams in 2021 – having already
taken the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon titles. This feat has not been
achieved in men’s tennis since the legendary Rod Laver in 1969, while the latest player to
do it was women’s great Steffi Graf in 1988.
The Serbian missed out on the chance to win a ‘Golden Slam’ (all four majors and an
Olympic Gold Medal) when he was ousted in the singles at Tokyo 2020 by eventual
champion Alexander Zverev, followed by a withdrawal from the Mixed Doubles Bronze
Medal match due to injury.


“The consequences physically hopefully will not create a problem for me for the US Open,
but that’s something that I’m not sure about right now,” said Djokovic. “But I’m not
regretting for giving it all because at the end of the day, when you play for your country,
that’s necessary.”
Djokovic then chose to skip the recent Western & Southern Open ATP event to rest and
recover, meaning he should be fresh for New York. However, he will face a stiff challenge
from the likes of Daniil Medvedev, Zverev, fellow veteran Roger Federer (while Rafael
Nadal has withdrawn due to a foot injury), and especially Stefanos Tsitsipas, who is still
hurting from losing the Roland Garros final earlier this year.
“It’s not easy to erase that from my memory. It’s all in the past now, but it’s not easy to get
it through. Also, I can not change the outcome, and the only way is to go further and turn
that frustration into something positive next time,” said the Greek star.
On the Women’s Singles side, Switzerland’s Belinca Bencic and Italian Camila Giorgi bring
momentum from their Olympic Games and Canadian Open triumphs respectively, but all
eyes will be on Ashleigh Barty, who won her first Wimbledon title earlier this year, Naomi
Osaka and Aryna Sabalenka. The WTA’s top-ranked trio are the clear favourites for the
final major title on offer in 2021.
Osaka is the defending US Open champion and recently made headlines with her
generosity, donating her winnings from the Western & Southern Open to support
earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, the Caribbean nation her father hails from.
“Really hurts to see all the devastation that’s going on in Haiti, and I feel like we really can’t
catch a break,” Osaka said on Twitter. “I’m about to play a tournament this week and I’ll
give all the prize money to relief efforts for Haiti. I know our ancestors’ blood is strong we’ll
keep rising.”
