Top seeded Serbian Novak Djokovic will meet his Austrian adversary Andreas Haider-Maurer, in the second round of the 2015 US Open, on Wednesday afternoon. Novak Djokovic v Andreas Haider-Maurer betting tips can be seen here.
Novak Djokovic won in straight sets.
Djokovic started his run at the Flushing Meadows in style by moving past his Brazilian opponent Joao Souza in straight sets 6-1, 6-1, 6-1, in just a little over an hour. He created eight aces and won 92 percent of his first service, which is a terrific start from the world no. 1.
Meanwhile on the Court 7, Andreas faced a lot of difficulties in overcoming the Canadian Vasek Pospisil, who managed to put up a good fight. The match lasted for more than three hours, and saw the Austrian emerge as the winner after surviving 24 aces from Pospisil over five sets.
Considering his season so far, it has been an average one. The world no. 52 played in a Challenger event prior to coming in New York, where he won the title. However, same hasn’t been the case for him on the ATP circuit.
There was only one occasion were Andreas had managed to move beyond the quarterfinal, which has been the case for him for most of this year. In ATP Rio, he lost to David Ferrer in the semifinal in straight sets.
As for Djokovic, with six titles so far, the top seed is looking to capture his third Grand Slam of the year. With an incredible amount of momentum over the last couple of tournaments, he certainly appears to be a strong candidate. After winning the Wimbledon, he emerged as the runner-up in Rogers Cup and Cincinnati Masters, losing to Andy Murray and Roger Federer respectively.
I don’t think he will have any difficulties here in reaching the next round.
