Novak Djokovic is approaching his latest Grand Slam campaign with a newfound appreciation. He is aiming to win his 24th title in New York, where he has both triumphed and experienced heartbreak. In 2020, he was disqualified for hitting a line judge with a ball in frustration. In 2021, his quest for a calendar Grand Slam was ended by Daniil Medvedev in the final. Last year, he was unable to participate in the tournament due to COVID-19 vaccination requirements for non-nationals. Despite these setbacks, Djokovic is solely focused on this year’s tournament and not dwelling on the past. He arrives at Flushing Meadows in excellent form after defeating Carlos Alcaraz in the Cincinnati final. Djokovic acknowledges that these challenging moments in matches are what motivate him to continue pushing himself. Fans are excited about the potential rematch between Djokovic and Alcaraz in the New York finale, as they have the makings of an epic rivalry. While the younger generation has invigorated Djokovic, he also credits age and time for helping him appreciate his craft at a deeper level. He understands that he may not have many more opportunities to win Grand Slam titles and approaches each one with a sense of gratitude and commitment. Djokovic will begin his campaign against Alexandre Muller. He sees every Grand Slam as a golden opportunity to make history and recognizes the significance of his achievements.
