Novak Djokovic: Won his only US Open title in 2011

Novak Djokovic: Won his only US Open title in 2011

Newly-crowned Wimbledon champion Djokovic goes into the US Open as the man to beat having regained top spot in the world rankings.

The Serbian was tipped to get back to No 1 in the world after finishing 2013 very strongly and has lived up to those expectations thanks to a string of big victories.

Although he suffered a shock loss to eventual champion Stanislas Wawrinka at the Australian Open, he bounced back by winning the Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells and Miami – both of which are prestigious hard-court tournaments held in North America.

He also enjoyed a successful clay-court season, winning the Rome Masters and reaching the French Open final, where he missed out on completing the career Grand Slam after a loss to Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic has reached the last four US Open finals but has taken the title at Flushing Meadows only once, when he defeated Nadal in four sets during his miraculous 2011 season. He finished runner-up to Nadal last year.

The 27-year-old, whose main attributes are his backhand and amazing movement around the court, did show some fallibility when he lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Tommy Robredo at the Rogers Cup and Cincinnati Masters respectively earlier this month.
