Three-time winner and second seed Novak Djokovic takes on home favourite Ben Shelton in the semifinals of the US Open on Friday.
The match is scheduled to be the second fixture on the Arthur Ashe Stadium on day 12.
US Open: When and where to watch?
Djokovic enters the semifinal clash after a straight sets victory over top-ranked American Taylor Fritz.
The 36-year-old Serbian, who is playing in New York for the first time since 2021, has barely looked in trouble except his third-round match against compatriot Laslo Djere when he had to come back from two-sets-to-love down.
On the other hand, Shelton made it to his maiden Major semifinal after taking out last year’s semifinalist and compatriot Frances Tiafoe in four sets.
Djokovic has a 30-0 record against Americans since his loss to Sam Querrey in the third round of Wimbledon in 2016.
This will be the first time Djokovic and Shelton will face each other. Shelton has a big serve but the youngster will need much more than that to trouble Djokovic, one of the best returners in the sport.
