Borna Gojo has embarked on an impressive run at the US Open, winning 14 consecutive sets since dropping the second set in the Qualifying Round 1 against Hamad Medjedovic. This unexpected success marks his first time advancing to the second week of the tournament, a significant achievement considering he had only secured one main-draw victory in Grand Slam events before this campaign and had never won a match at the US Open. Previously, Gojo had struggled to translate his success from the Challenger level to the main tour due to mental hurdles. Although he had shown promise against higher-ranked opponents in team competitions, tour-level tournaments had proved challenging. Notably, his past encounters with top-10 players were in the Davis Cup, where he performed well, winning seven games against Rafael Nadal in 2019 and taking Andrey Rublev to a tiebreaker in 2021.

Novak Djokovic faced a two-set deficit against Laslo Djere in the US Open’s third round, but his remarkable track record in Grand Slam tournaments against players like Djere and his resilience made the final outcome never seriously in doubt. In the last five years, only Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal have beaten Djokovic in Grand Slam matches after going up two sets to love. Djokovic has also come back from a 0-2 set deficit to win seven times in his career before this week. Notably, Djokovic’s last two-set comeback win at the US Open was in 2011 when he went on to claim the title. He has a remarkable record of turning such comeback victories into titles, winning four of the last six campaigns in which he achieved this feat. While the round of 16 has seen some unfortunate incidents for Djokovic in recent years, he currently holds a ten-match winning streak at this stage in Grand Slam tournaments. Throughout his career, he has only lost once to an opponent ranked outside the top 100 at this level, despite playing 66 matches against such opponents.
