Vote -- Will Federer defend US Open title this year?

Before Canada series, people always said Federer and Djokovic is always the favorite (not for Nadal), then after Federer's performance in Canada and Cincy, do you believe that he will get US Open title this year? Let's discuss it and vote now !! Vote will be closed in 8/10.

Over 5 sets, he does have a chance but he has been crumbling on the big points so I think it is a 50/50 chance.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Maybe, if he doesn't get far in Beijing and has time to recuperate from flying back and forth (but in that case his psyche might be completely shattered...).

No.

But I think that the final will be Nadal vs Federer if both are OK (without injuries, fatigue or whatever)

-----------> Rafael Nadal <-----------

NO.

I expect a QF, SF at best. And I wouldn't be surprised if he looses even earlier.
I know we have no draw to look at, but just look at the players he has been losing to on hard courts. Every top 50 (maybe even top100) player is a danger to him nowadays.

Federer doesn't even deserve direct entry, if the USTA were serious they'd force him to go through qualifying.
