Tennis-Schedule of Monday's featured matches at U.S. Open
NEW YORK, Aug 27 Schedule of featured matches on the opening day of the U.S. Open tennis championships on Monday (prefix denotes seeding):
MELBOURNE Jan 16 Novak Djokovic's campaign for a hat-trick of Australian Open titles shifted up a gear on Wednesday, as he demolished American Ryan Harrison 6-1 6-2 6-3 to charge into the third round.
The steely-eyed Serb warmed up with a workmanlike performance in his opener against Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu, but was at his devastating best in a 91-minute rout of the 62nd-ranked Harrison.
Bullied on the baseline and broken early in each set, the 20-year-old American scrambled hard to make a contest under the lights at Rod Laver Arena, but surrendered the match when his opponent ripped a searing forehand down the line.
Djokovic will continue his bid for a sixth grand slam title, and fourth at Melbourne Park against Czech veteran Radek Stepanek.
