Re: Who is the favorite for the USO?

Fed: no chance, he's in laughable shape.
Nole: my pick.
Andy: maybe, he's doing great lately both mentally and in his game.
Rafa: no. The USO courts just aren't his best friend. Though how amazing would it be if he won?

Karlović.
Nah, he sucks in grand slams and can't win a 5setter, hopefully that'll change but I doubt it.
IMO Nadal of the four named in the first post, or a surprise winner. Would be great for the game.

Oh well neither were Toronto courts his friends, or Cincy, Wimby and Queens

Not that I think he's the fave (I don't he is NOT the fave either) but this letany about unfriendly courts looks quite rusty already.

Rafa
Djokovic
Murray
Federer

Murray might go to 4th favourite after the Olympics, depending on whether Federer gets his act together. Right now, the 3 favourites have to be Nadal, Djokovic and Murray. Federer just isn't at the races just now and is losing to everybody.

IMO Nadal. But if him and Djoker play each other at Cincy or the Olympics and Djoker win, I would say their chances of victory are equal.

Go FedMug

Yes, but Rafa has acknowledged himself has insinuated a couple of times he often doesn't 'feel' it at US Open, which showed in his results. He can't have too many fond memories of it.

But yeah, of course he has improved a lot. I just see more natural hard courters like Nole and Andy win the USO.
