Novak Djokovic vs Feliciano Lopez US Open 2015 tennis, latest updates
Several important matches are set to be played on the day 9 of the US Open tennis 2015. Though Serena Williams vs Venus Williams match is being talked most right now, this is not the only important match that will be played in the course of the tournament today.
We need to accept the fact that womenâ€™s tennis seems to have outmaneuvered menâ€™s tennis this year and the sisterly contest here tonight shows that Williams sisters can control the whole tennis world even now. They used to do dominate it a decade and half ago when they were teenagers and their early twenties.
Now with the return of form of Venus and the fact that Serena is the top rated player in the world right now has made all the tennis lovers talk about them and them alone.
While Serena Williams is top ranked player at the moment, her older sister Venus is 23rd ranked.
Another very important match that people are talking about is none other than Novak Djokovic vs Feliciano Lopez. While Djokovis is top ranked player in menâ€™s tennis, Lopez is ranked 18th.
In the meantime Serena is well aware of dangers ahead. â€œSheâ€™s a player that knows how to win, knows how to beat me, and knows my weaknesses better than anyoneâ€¦Itâ€™s not very easy. Like I said, for me, sheâ€™s the only player in the draw I donâ€™t want to play â€“ not only because sheâ€™s my sister but because for me sheâ€™s the best player.â€
She is not expecting an easy route to semi-finals. â€œI think itâ€™s more fun than it used to beâ€¦We really relish the opportunity. Weâ€™re both happy to still be involved in getting so farâ€¦.And itâ€™s still super intense. Sheâ€™s doing well and she wants to win this. So do I. Itâ€™s not easyâ€¦I think itâ€™s been an amazing rivalry. I think itâ€™s meant a lot. Weâ€™ve done a lot for the sport. Hopefully it can continue as long as we playâ€, says Serena.
On the other hand Djokovic vs Lopez game is also going to be rather very tough. Djokovic should have his hands full with Lopez, though he hasn’t had much trouble with him historically. Statistics show that Djokovic has won all five of his matches against Lopez, with the last coming in 2012. Nonetheless in the last three years, things have improved with Lopes too. Still, Lopez looked great beating No. 32 seed Fabio Fognini in his Round of 16 match, while Djokovic needed four sets to down No. 23 seed Roberto Bautista Agut. So this is not going to be a cakewalk.
