Novak Djokovic playing carefree ball
NEW YORK -- If Novak Djokovic is feeling the pressure of playing the favorite here at the U.S. Open, he's not showing it.
Thursday afternoon, after a light hitting session before his quarterfinal match against Juan Martin del Potro, he was kibitzing with the security guard outside the locker room.
"Yeah, what's up, boss?" said a smiling, jocular Djokovic. "Hey, boss, what's up? It's all good. It's all good. It's all good."
Six hours later, it was better than good.
