Benefiting from favorable results, Taylor Fritz stands out as the only player in this year’s US Open to reach the quarterfinals without dropping a set. This has been crucial for him, given his recent heavy schedule and signs of fatigue at the start of the tournament on home turf. Fritz, the top-ranked American, has admirably embraced the role, compensating for his game’s limitations with consistent strong performances. He’s notched notable wins at the Masters level and broke into the second week of Grand Slams at the 2022 Australian Open. Additionally, he reached his first quarterfinal at Wimbledon in 2022, narrowly missing out on a win against an injured Rafael Nadal. This marks his eighth quarterfinal appearance in eight U.S. tournaments this year, where he faced top-10 players three times, with losses to Jannik Sinner, Carlos Alcaraz, and Novak Djokovic.

Novak Djokovic faced a tough situation, falling two sets behind against fellow Serbian Laslo Djere in the third round of the US Open. However, apart from that match, his journey to the quarterfinals has been smoother compared to recent Grand Slams. His four opponents—Alexandre Muller, Bernabe Zapata Miralles, Laslo Djere, and Borna Gojo—had only won two main-draw US Open matches collectively before this year. Djokovic began the season impressively, hinting at a potential year-long unbeaten streak. Unfortunately, this unprecedented feat was ended by Daniil Medvedev in Dubai in March, and his quest for the calendar Grand Slam was halted by Carlos Alcaraz at Wimbledon. Now, he’s determined to secure the elusive US Open title, last won by him in 2018. Djokovic holds a flawless 12-0 record in US Open quarterfinals, and he has an impressive history against American opponents, winning 80 out of 90 matches, with his last defeat to an American, Sam Querrey, at Wimbledon seven years ago.

Head to head

In their head-to-head encounters, Novak Djokovic has dominated with a 7-0 lead. Taylor Fritz’s game, which has some limitations, tends to struggle against top-tier players like Djokovic. This trend is not only seen in his matches against Djokovic but also against players of similar caliber. However, it’s worth noting that Djokovic has shown some vulnerability in his serve in his last two matches. Against Fritz, this could be a significant issue, as Fritz possesses a potent serve and can exploit any openings created by Djokovic’s inconsistent serving.
