Top-seeded On Monday, Novak Djokovic advanced to the fourth round of the U.S. Open men’s singles by beating No. 99 seed Jenson Brooksby of the United States 1-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.
The young American challenger Djokovic faced off against the 20-time major singles champion and came out on top, easily taking the first set.
Djokovic said of his slow start, “Jenson was pumped, he had a clear game plan, and he was executing all the shots very efficiently, and I was really on the back foot.”
For about a set and a half, “he was reading the play very well,” and “I didn’t have the rhythm, made a lot of unforced errors.”
In contrast, the No. 1 player in the world bounced back quickly and won the next three sets easily.

Djokovic: I’m Aware of What’s on the Line
“Look, I know what’s at stake,” Novak Djokovic said. To put it another way, “I mean, every match, every Grand Slam that I get to play at this stage of my career, there is a lot on the line.
In a matter of days, I may or may not have the chance to defend my Grand Slam title. I have a winning mentality, confidence in my abilities, and am eager to succeed.
It can’t be denied at all. So, how do you strike a balance? It’s all up to personal preference, I guess. One cannot generalise about a player pool because every individual is unique.
I don’t feel comfortable talking about the specifics of what I do on a daily basis to maintain my equilibrium and readiness.
On the other hand, there are things I do to ensure that I am ready in every way possible. Again, that’s not a sure thing because anything can happen on the court. There is a lot of pressure and high expectations.
It’s possible that you’ll be able to deal with it better than your opponent, but it’s also possible that you won’t.
