Novak Djokovic has been on an incredible run this season, remaining undefeated at 29-0 since the beginning of the calendar year. The ‘Djoker’ is facing Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta in his R16 matchup at the US Open 2020. Ahead of the crucial tie, Djokovic seems to be free of any pre-game jitters and has released a video that precisely explains his state of mind.
Even though his perfect 2020 record is on the line, Novak Djokovic seems to be relaxed. How relaxed you ask? Well, he seems to be right in the groove as the 33-year-old is having a dance-off with his physio ahead of the game against Carreno Busta. Novak can be seen shaking a few moves on the “dance floor,” enjoying himself with a hearty laugh.

Playing without fans might spoil Djoker’s external motivation during games, but he is making use of the empty stands! On a normal game day, he couldn’t even dream of coming into the stands and rocking it with his dance moves.

Novak Djokovic seems to be making the most this version of the US Open. Moreover, with an awesome physio like Ulises Badio, who doesn’t want to have some fun? Badio even experimented with Novak’s hair, when he gave him a trim a few weeks ago.

At the moment, Novak seems to be cruising his way to the business end of the 2020 US Open. Undoubtedly, he is one of the favorites to win it, and it is most likely that he’ll face Alexander Zverev in the semi-final.
Carreno Busta is confident of beating Novak Djokovic
When Novak Djokovic is on a run, it is extremely challenging to catch him. So far, he’s only dropped a set in the 2020 US Open, and that’s scary. But, this doesn’t tremble Carreno Busta at all. The former World No. 10 is confident of getting past the 17-time grand slam champion.
“Novak is playing amazing tennis. Probably the hardest task at this moment, but there are always options. Maybe he will have a bad day. Key for me is to be absolutely focused, especially in the beginning of the match.” Carreno Busta said.
These two have met each other thrice in the past. Unsurprisingly, Djokovic enjoys a 100% success rate. But in no way will this stat allow Novak to take his opponent lightly. He’s always mentally prepared for his upcoming challenge, and we all know about his playing capacity on the court. The guy’s a monster!
