Serbian superstar Novak Djokovic will be looking to continue his dominance in men's tennis when he competes in the US Open semi-finals.
The accomplished player is set to face German star Alexander Zverev in a semi-final clash on September 10 at 21h00.
It will be in a rematch of their 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games semi-final match which Zverev won and Djokovic will be seeking revenge having defeated Italy's Matteo Berrettini in the quarter-final on September 9.

“I like to play best of five, especially against the younger guys,” said Djokovic after he defeated Berrettini 5-7, 6-2, 6-2, 6-3.
“I think the experience of being on the big stage so many times does help. Physically I feel as fit as anybody out there. So I can go the distance. Actually I like to go the distance. 
"The longer the match goes, I feel like I don’t have any issues. I think I have a better chance than any other opponent. So that’s all.”
Djokovic is currently ranked as world number one by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) having won this year's Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon.

The in-form player has won an all-time joint record 20 Grand Slam men's singles titles (shared with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal) including three US Open trophies in 2011, 2015, 2018.
In the fourth round of last year's US Open, Djokovic was defaulted after accidentally hitting a line official in the throat with a tennis ball during his match against Pablo Carreño Busta.[24
This will be the 12th meeting between Djokovic and Zverez in competitive matches.
Djokovic has won seven matches compared to Zverez's four wins including their recent clash at the Olympics. 
The winner between Djokovic and Zverez will take on either Russian star Daniil Medvedev or Félix Auger-Aliassime of Canada in the 2021 US Open final on September 12.
