Serbian tennis superstar Novak Djokovic has continued his incredible form by making it into the semifinals of the 2021 ATP US Open. Djokovic will face Alexander Zverev from Germany. 

Alexander Zverev is an outstanding player and he enters this match having defeated Lloyd Harris in straight sets in the previous round of the tournament. It was a comfortable win for Zverev as the German superstar won 88% of his service games and 4 return games. Zverev has been in outstanding form as he is yet to lose a set at this tournament. Alexander Zverev recently won the Cincinnati Masters and the confidence is evident in his player. This is expected to be a big challenge as he is playing against the number 1 seed. 

Looking at Novak Djokovic, it has been a comfortable tournament for the top seed and he enters this match having defeated Matteo Berrettini in 4 sets in the previous round. Djokovic lost the opening set but found his feet quickly to win the final 3 sets and the match. It has been an outstanding run of form for Novak Djokovic as he has not lost a single match in ATP tournaments since the Italian Open which took place in May. Considering his recent form, Novak Djokovic is going to be tough to stop. 

Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev have played each other 9 times in the past with Djokovic winning on 6 occasions and Zverev winning 3 times. The most recent match between these two players was at the Olympics where Zverev won but prior to that, Djokovic has won the all meetings since 2018.

This should be a close match since both players are in exceptional form leading into this match. That being said, I see Novak Djokovic winning. Djokovic has the ability to win big games while Zverev seems to fall short. I see Djokovic being challenged till the end but the Serbian should win in 5 sets.
