Novak Djokovic: Poses with the Wimbledon men's title
World No 1 Djokovic will be trying to collect his third Grand Slam title of the year at the US Open.
The Serb successfully defended his Wimbledon crown in July, adding to his Australian Open triumph, and can complete a hat-trick of major trophies at the New York tournament.
Djokovic has secured the silverware just once at Flushing Meadows, back in 2011, and was beaten by Roger Federer in the recent Cincinnati final, while Andy Murray also defeated him in the Montreal Masters final.
But he has already shrugged off disappointment this year, responding to defeat by Stan Wawrinka in the French Open final with a typically dominant display at Wimbledon, which culminated in him retaining the title with a four-set victory over Federer.
His fine form in 2015 has also seen him win his fifth Australian Open title in January before adding four Masters 1000 crowns – Indian Wells, Miami, Monte Carlo and Rome.
A losing semi-finalist to Kei Nishikori last year, Djokovic should again face stern competition from Federer and Murray, who have found their hard court form at just the right time.
