Novak Djokovic praised the heavens after being pushed by qualifier and Toni Nadal look-a-like Jesse Witten in their US Open third round match today.
The fourth seeded Serb lost the first set in a tiebreak but his quality and a fatiguing foe pulled him through, closing out with 6-7 (2), 6-3, 7-6 (2), 6-4 win. He'll face Radek Stepanek for a spot in the quarterfinals.
Nole seems to be playing well but well enough to take his second major title? The jury's still out on that one.
