In Saturday's match, Kei Nishikori proved the first real strong test of Djokovic in the tournament. It took Djokovic until the second set to settle into his own pace and take it all. That's how smooth he's been during these last tournament matches, losing the first set, and only the first set, is an aberration.  

In that opening set alone, we saw Djokovic make 20 unforced errors, something he can't continue to do. As the match went on, Djokovic prevented Nishikori from converting the seven break point opportunities in the second set, which helped ensure he didn't drop a set.

And while Djokovic won the match 6-7(4), 6-3, 6-3, 6-2, things were much less easy for Jenson Brooksby. In his first five-set win ever, he won 6-2, 3-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-3, beating Aslan Karatsev. Monday will mark Brooksby's first-ever fourth round of a Slam.

We're also curious about the other subplot of the tournament. NYC has been rooting against Djokovic at the Open, and we wonder if they'll try and will Brooksby to win again.

Here's how to watch Novak Djokovic vs Jenson Brooksby online:
