Richard Gasquet explains funny reason why he can beat Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic continued his dominance of Richard Gasquet on Saturday beating the Frenchman in straight sets to move smoothly into the USOpen last 16.

The No. 2-seeded Federer has won five of his record 20 Grand Slam titles at Flushing Meadows, but his most recent US Open trophy arrived a decade ago.

The sixth-seeded Djokovic, who won Wimbledon in July, has looked his dominant self in the first two rounds of the tournament and is searching for his 14th career Grand Slam title and third at the final major of the year in NY. Djokovic sailed through his service games in the second set and Richard couldn't follow that pace, losing serve at love in game two after a poor backhand to find himself a set and a break down.

Speight, who his experience playing under Jim Harbaugh and his past as a starter for the Wolverines, knows what that is like. Speight, Thompson-Robinson and Modster had separated themselves from Matt Lynch , Austin Burton and walk on Josiah Norwood .

If he beats the Portuguese, the world number six could face second seed Federer in the quarter-finals.

The 31-year-old Sharapova won their only previous career meeting, a tight three setter on the clay at the Rome Masters earlier this year. When Djokovic stole a break midway through the set to get ahead 3-2, he ran away with the lead and finished with a final break to seal the match. "The crowd was unbelievable toward the end of the match, it was a real night session match here at the US Open", added the Serb. He booked a fourth- round meeting with unseeded Joao Sousa of Portugal, who upset 17th-seeded Lucas Pouille of France 7-6 (7/5), 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 7-6 (7/5).

"He's a fighter, he's a grinder", said Djokovic.
