Djokovic dances past Davydenko into last 16
New York: Top seed Novak Djokovic continued his irresistible move through the U.S. Open field with a straight sets victory over Russian Nikolay Davydenko on Saturday to reach the round of 16 at Flushing Meadows.
The Serb improved his sensational 2011 record to 60-2 with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory over the 30-year-old Davydenko in New York.
The Australian and Wimbledon champion got more of a workout than in his first two matches, trading groundstrokes with the veteran Russian before ending the two hour, seven minute match with a sizzling forehand winner.
The 24-year-old Djokovic had enough energy in reserve to treat the Arthur Ashe Stadium audience to some of his best dance moves as the crowd roared their approval.
World number one Djokovic next meets 22nd seed Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine, who beat Ivo Karlovic of Croatia to advance.
