Tuesday, 01 September 2020_Novak Djokovic got his campaign to win a fourth US Open and 18th Grand Slam title off to a flying start on Monday by beating Damir Dzumhur 6-1 6-4 6-1 to advance to the second round.

Djokovic rolls into second round with win over DzumhurDjokovic broke Dzumhur's serve for a seventh time to seal the win in the first night match on Arthur Ashe Stadium court, which, due to COVID-19, was missing the thousands of rowdy New York tennis fans that usually flock to Queens every year.

After a dominant start, Djokovic struggled in the second set and lost his temper even after closing it out.

In the end, Dzumhur, who hails from Bosnia and Herzegovina, had no answer to the world number-one's blistering serve and stout defense in a match that lasted just under two hours.

Later, in an all-American matchup, Steve Johnson eliminated 16th-seeded John Isner 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-6 (3).
