Novak Djokovic has punctuated both of his wins here with an exclamation point, overwhelming his opponents while dropping just three games in two matches. Through two rounds here, the 24-year-old Serb is now a staggering 59-2 on the year, with nine tournament titles to his credit, including the Australian Open and Wimbledon. This figures as Djokovic’s best test here so far, but the way he’s playing, it’s impossible to believe he won’t have all the answers.
Nikolay Davydenko third-round showing here is his best Slam performance of 2011. The 30-year-old Russian, who started this year with a bang by beating both Rafael Nadal and Federer to win the Doha event, has fizzled since, winning just one match in the season’s first three majors. Still, it would be a mistake for Djokovic to look past the versatile veteran, who has twice reached the semis here.
