US OPEN 2013
Statistical Preview: Djokovic Vs. Youzhny
New York, U.S.A.

IBM provides a statistical preview of Thursday’s US Open quarter-final between Novak Djokovic and Mikhail Youzhny.
Match-Up: Djokovic leads their FedEx ATP Head2Head 5-3 but they've played only once in the last three years. Djokovic has been playing like the World No. 1 through the first four rounds. His return game has been remarkable although he hasn't played anyone who has a really big serve so far.
Youzhny has a good serve but not the type of serve that can overpower someone like Djokovic. The key for Youzhny will be his own serve. He must serve very well, mixing pace and placement to try to keep Djokovic off balance. The problem is simply, when the ball is in play the edge goes to Djokovic.
