NOVAK DJOKOVIC will hope lightning doesn’t strike twice when he looks to step up his glory bid today against Jiri Vesely at the US Open.
The world No.1 suffered a shock defeat to the Czech world No.49 at the Monte Carlos Masters four months ago in their only previous meeting.
Djokovic, who was far from his convincing best in his opening win over Jerry Jancwicz this week and needed an injury timeout, is huge favourite at 1-12 with Marathonbet to reach round three and 8-15 at Skybet to progress in straight sets.
The day’s other matches include Britain’s Kyle Edmund chalked up as 10-29 favourite at bwin to make it past Ernesto Escobedo (5-2, Boylesports) while British women’s No.1 Jo Konta is 4-13 at Marathonbet to win her battle with Tsvetana Pironkova (3-1, Sportinget).
Elsewhere there’s the likes of Tour of Spain cycling and Major League Baseball worth a flutter so let’s hear all your sporting tips and chat.
