Or, is Djokovic going to net another win, putting himself only two victories away from the Grand Slam that lurks on the horizon? He's won all three of their previous meetings, with Roland Garros (2021) and the 2019 Nitto ATP Finals coming prior to this summer's Wimbledon win.

That said, the path wasn't exactly smooth at his last US Open outing. Djokovic didn't play like the World's No. 1-ranked star when he dropped his service twice in the first set, and then dropped that set, in the Round of 16 match against Jenson Brooksby. After that set, though, he found his bearings and confidence, as the 1-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 box score shows. 

This was Djokovic's 25th match victory in a row, and he's looking like he won't have that streak broken any time soon. Berrettini's US Open run hasn't been as smooth as Djokovic's, which may be due to a thigh injury suffered recently. Djokovic's shoulder injury was further back, and he's had time to recover.

Plus, Berrettini's never been a pushover for Djokovic. Their 2021 lines of 6-7, 6-4, 6-4 6-3 and 6-3, 6-2, 6-7, 7-5 showed that the Serbian ace can't always count on everything going his way.

One thing is sure — we'll be tuning in to see if Djokovic's march towards the Golden Slam will take another victim. He doesn't look like he could lose, but Berrettini's not getting written off early.
