Novak Djokovic’s bid for a 21st major title that would complete a calendar-year Grand Slam picked up pace on Thursday as the world No. 1 cruised into the U.S. Open third round with a 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 thrashing of Tallon Griekspoor. Having shaken off the rust in a spotty four-set opening match against 18-year-old Holger Rune on Tuesday, Djokovic was sharper and much more focused against the 25-year-old Dutchman.

Just like his first round contest Djokovic dominated early on but this time the 34-year-old Serb never let his foot off the gas as he registered his 77th win at the U.S. Open.
