Novak Djokovic is on target to win all four Grand Slams in 2021. 

I am backing the World No. 1 to beat Alexander Zverev in 4 sets to reach the final. Djokovic has won 27 of his last 29 matches and is aiming to win all four Grand Slams in 2021.

He won the French Open and Wimbledon before finishing third at the Olympics, losing to Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals.

Djokovic has won in 4 sets in four of his five matches at the US Open. He beat Matteo Berrettini 5-7 6-2 6-2 6-3 in the quarter-finals.

Zverev has won four titles in 2021. He won in Acapulco in March, the Madrid Masters in May, Tokyo Olympics in July and Cincinnati Masters in August.

The 24-year-old has won his last 16 matches which includes victories against Djokovic, Casper Ruud, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev.

The German cruised through the opening two rounds at the US Open. He lost the first set against Jack Sock in the third round before the American retired in the fourth set.

Zverev beat Jannik Sinner and Lloyd Harris to progress to the semi-finals. 

Djokovic has a 6-3 advantage against Zverev in their head-to-head duels. Djokovic won the first two encounters in 2021 before Zverev triumphed 1-6 6-3 6-1 in the Tokyo Olympics semi-finals. 

Verdict

Alexander Zverev can win a set against Novak Djokovic, but stopping the Serbian could be a step too far at the US Open.
