Novak Djokovic - Nole - is back in top shape for the US Open 2018. The two biggest stories of the tennis year so far will look to continue playing out this weekend at the US Open, as both Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic seek to continue to re-establish their dominance over the tennis world.

It wasn't that long ago when the tennis world was seriously contemplating life without Novak Djokovic. After dominating the tennis world for a number of years, Djokovic fell on hard times, seemingly losing his touch, finesse and drive to win over night. Djokovic cited personal issues for the reason behind his decline - as he buckled, names such as Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer won the tournaments that were previously reserved for Djokovic.

Djokovic, however, has regained his confidence, and that is bad news for the rest of the men's tennis world.

After winning Wimbledon earlier this year, Djokovic will seek to add a second straight Grand Slam to his trophy case in the US Open finals. Standing in his way will be Juan Del Potro, who managed to advance to the finals following the retirement of Rafael Nadal due to pain.

Momentum is an extremely powerful force in tennis, and Del Potro will need to overcome the surging and confident Djokovic if he wishes to win on Sunday.

Djokovic, for his part, would continue to move back up the rankings ladder with a win on Sunday. He currently sits in the #6 spot, though a win on Sunday would continue to vault him higher.
