Starting with August 29, in New York is set to begin the last Grand Slam event of the year with all the ATP top players on its starting line. Novak Djokovic, the 29-years-old Serb star is expected to put in that type of Tennis that made him to literally dictate the way things works on the male`s professional tennis tour. It`s been a harsh summer for the Serb with anearly exit at Wimbledon and moreover a poor result at the Olympics in Rio where he failed to advance to the higher stages both in singles and doubles. But things might move back on the righttrack in New York as it`s known that the hardcourt is the Serb`s favorite game surface.

US Open can reignite motivation.

Earlier this year, Novak Djokovic finally won the French Open, the only Grand Slam still missing from his hands. By accomplishing the so-called career slam, for every player you might ask it would take an enormous amount of self-control and composure to keep up doing the same thing. The Serb already has 12 Grand Slam titles in his pocket and one of the most crushing dominance in tennis history wearing his trademark. He needs something special to happen in order to maintain that surreal pace for an extended chunk of time. The Olympics in Rio would have been the right place to do so, but Juan Martin del Potro was a hard to swallow stone for the Serb. Now he`s heading into theUS Open, the place when he for the first time, stepped on the big stage.

It happened 9 years ago back in 2007 when Djokovic made it to his first Grand Slam final. Despite losing it againstRoger Federer it was the proper incentive for the 20-years-old Serb at that time.

Djokovic has 6 finals played at the US Open.

Despite being the last one of the regular season, US Open is one of the greatest.

The main venue also suffered a huge improvement as the retractable roof is in place. The Serb champion has great memories at Flushing Meadows. He won twice the title in 2011 and 2015. He also lost other 4 finals back in 2007, 2010, 2012 and 2013.

Considered by many as one of the great tennis players in history due to his extraordinary athleticism, Novak Djokovic still has the time to become the biggest of all time.

Unlike Federer or Nadal, he reached his peak somewhere around 25 years of age. Since then, with some form fluctuations, he put in a crushing consistency. If he`ll find the recipe to sustain that momentum for few more years, he will be the greatest.
