Djokovic, Serena return to court in Day Five action

NEW YORK: Novak Djokovic will look to keep recent shoulder injury at bay as he resumes his US Open title defence in the third round, while Serena Williams will look to take another step closer to a record-tying 24th Grand Slam title on Friday .

"Good thing about Grand Slams is you have a day off in between the matches," said Djokovic."I'm hoping that with a proper medical help and treatments, I'll be able to get myself in a better state." Federer has lost the opening set in each of his first two matches before flipping a switch and cruising to the finish line in dominant fashion.The 20-times Grand Slam champion, who improved to 2-0 all-time against Evans when he beat him in the second round of the Australian Open this year, is not losing any sleep over his sluggish starts.

"So when it happens like this back-to-back matches, you know, it's just a bit frustrating more than anything ... but, yeah, can only do better, which is a great thing moving forward."
