Novak Djokovic begins his Grand Slam quest against Holger Vitus Nodskov Rune on Tuesday night as the overwhelming favourite to win the 2021 US Open championship, having won the past three majors, four of the last six, and eight of the last 12 – not to mention a men's record-equaling 20 overall.

During this year's US Open Series, longtime opponent Rafael Nadal said, "He's already won three, so when you win three, you can win four, without a doubt." He'll be playing on hard courts, which are likely his best surface, so why not? It will be challenging Because there will be other players vying for the season's final Slam. But, of course, he's one of the overwhelming favourites.”

Of course, having withdrew due to a foot ailment, Nadal will not be an impediment to Djokovic's campaign this year. The four-time champion joins five-time champion Roger Federer (knee) and defending champion Dominic Thiem (wrist) on the sidelines, clearing the way for the world No. 1: Nadal is the only active player with multiple wins and a winning record (2-1) versus Djokovic at the US Open, Federer is the only player to have defeated Djokovic three times at the US Open, and Thiem has won five of his past seven meetings against the usually unbeatable Serb.

Despite their absence, a strong and skilled field remains as Round 2 approaches, all with the goal of dethroning Djokovic.
