Top-seeded Novak Djokovic saved seven of eight break points Tuesday night to start the U.S. Open with a 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 victory over former junior world No. 1, Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania. The victory took only 82 minutes for Djokovic, seeking his second title and fourth straight final at Flushing Meadows. It was a quiet evening at Arthur Ashe Stadium, where the packed crowd barely cheered during the most routine of matches. One of the few exciting moments came on the first point of the third set, when Djokovic lobbed Berankis and Berankis replied with a backward shot between his legs that Djokovic calmly flicked away for a volley winner. The top-seeded Serb hit 28 winners, with only nine unforced errors.
