Grand Slam number 24 is looming into view for Novak Djokovic, but a new superstar American is blocking his route. Can Ben Shelton harness the power of the New York crowd to deliver a big semi-final shock at Flushing Meadows?

Ben Shelton vs Novak Djokovic Prediction

Ben Shelton brought the Arthur Ashe court to life in his quarter-final against Frances Tiafoe. He has a huge game, he tops the speed gun for his serves, and lets rip on the forehand as well.

Of course, Djokovic has pretty much seen it all before but Shelton is a bit special. It may take the Serbian a little while to get adjusted to Shelton’s pace and power, but we have seen the great champion learn on the job during the matches on many occasions.

Djokovic will have to work for this as the American will throw everything at him and there is a lack of fear to him. The American could take a set, potentially on a tiebreak, but Djokovic should reach the final.
