Federer is finished. He played terribly the last 2 slams and only won because Nadal wasn't there to gut him.
He's not going to win another Grand Slam ever, esp. with Murray and Del Portro all stepping up their game.
Your damn right, now that Murray has decided to step up he's winning masters events and looks like a threat to make the US Open final. Totally different from last year when....oh wait, he did the exact same thing last year and got whitewashed by Fed.
on the other hand looks poised and ready to beat Federer. The last time they met on hardcourts Federer only bageled him twice, this time he's guaranteed at least 3 games a set.
