Novak Djokovic underlined his status as the favourite to win the US Open after powering past Sam Querrey in straight sets to reach the fourth round.

The Wimbledon champion wrapped up a routine 6-3 6-2 6-2 win to book his place in the last 16 at Flushing Meadows, reaching the fourth round for the 22nd consecutive time at a Grand Slam.

“So far, so good,” said Djokovic. “The performances in all three rounds are no less than I wanted, expected and hoped that I could play.

“Sam is a big server and has a very powerful game. I had to move him around the court – he’s a big guy, doesn’t move so well.

“Of course as the tournament progresses the opponents will be tougher, but I am ready.”

Djokovic will face either Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber or American John Isner for a place in the quarter-finals.
