Novak Djokovic takes on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the men's singles quarter-final clash of the 2016 US Open on Wednesday (7 September).

Where to watch live

The match starts at 1.30am BST (early Wednesday morning). Live coverage of the game will be available in the UK on British Eurosport 1 & 2. Live scores and regular updates will be available on US Open's official website.


World number one Novak Djokovic comes into this clash on the back of a difficult time in the past one month, but his performances at the ongoing US Open have shown that he is still the man to beat.

Djokovic cruised past Great Britain's Kyle Edmund 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 in the third round, taking just two hours to win the game. On the basis of form shown by the Serb, suggestions of his decline are just rumours, with the defending champion primed to make another grab at the title this season.

Jo-Wilfired Tsonga has been an enigma in the world of tennis, having the talent and ability to reach the top but that he is yet to win a major Grand Slam shows how inconsistent he has been.

Aside from 2011 and 2012, which were big seasons in his career, the world number 11 has struggled since then. That he has just won only two Masters 1000 titles in his career so far, shows his inconsistency, with his last title win coming in Toronto in 2014.

The Frenchman has the tools to beat Djokovic, but an upset here looks unlikely considering the Serb is just easing his way into form.
