THE PREDICTION

It was not plain sailing for Novak Djokovic on his comeback match as he was hampered by neck pain during his 7-6, 6-4 victory over Ricardas Berankis and he had to come from a break down in each set but he ultimately prevailed to extend his unbeaten record in this truncated 2020 season. The world number one will certainly need to be on his toes if he is to progress here as Tennys Sandgren is no stranger to upsetting the top players and hr claimed the scalp of talented Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime in the second round. Djokovic will need to improve if he is to go all the way in New York and that needs to start here, and his camp will be hoping he doesn’t suffer any more neck issues from here on in. Sandgren could well push the Serb all the way and is more than capable of nicking a set, but the prediction is for Djokovic to reach the quarter-finals in three sets.
