Djokovic favourite, Serena eyes 24th Grand Slam

By The Assam Tribune

WASHINGTON, Aug 31: In a major delight for tennis fans across the globe, the US Open will become the first Grand Slam of the COVID-19 era when it begins on Monday in a spectator-less bubble at the Flushing Meadows, New York.

Novak Djokovic, fresh from his recent Cincinnati Masters title, will be seeking his 18th Grand Slam in a roster that misses Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for the first time since the 1999 edition of the tournament. The Serbian launches his bid for a fourth US Open crown at Arthur Ashe Stadium as he squares off with Bosnia and Herzegovina�s 107th-ranked Damir Dzumhur.

Austrian second seed Dominic Thiem, third-seeded 2019 US Open runner-up Daniil Medvedev of Russia, Greek fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas and German fifth seed Alexander Zverev are also in the fray. Britain�s Andy Murray also could pose a threat as he lurks in Thiem�s quarter of the draw.

Indian fans too have something to be excited about the tournament. India�s number one singles player Sumit Nagal could face Thiem in the next round if he clears American Bradley Klahn in his opening contest.

It will be the second straight US Open singles main draw for Nagal, who came through the qualifiers last year and played a memorable match against Federer. � IANS
