The Official U.S Open 2010 Prediction Thread

this is your official u.s.open 2010 prediction thread.

you have the floor. have at it. share with us your your very best estimate of who is likely to snatch the last slam of 2010.

all objective thoughts, reasonable comments, ridiculous insults, and smart remarks welcome.


i can fire the first shot. i am relatively certain that nadal will target the u.s. open this year. he will go after it with all his might and all his fury. i am just not seeing enough improvement from murray. he keeps disappointing.

fed is getting up in age and djokovic is in a slump. i believe clay warrior senses a great opportunity and he will try to take advantage of it.

fed vs nadal final there is a strong strong possibility. that may well be their very last gathering in a final of a slam.

not really jeff. wimby is almost here.

all eyes and roads point to u.s. open after that. top guns will get some rest and then head over to canada (first stop) for the north american hard court circuit.


it was something clay warrior said to johnny mac at roland garros after the final. i think he has his eyes on it.

Most recent news I heard is that he is aiming for a late July return (LA Open).

I'm not sure physically he'll be OK, but that's what he's aiming at.

If he IS healthy and able to come back for USO Series, US Open will be a lot more interesting, imo.

Ernests Gulbis. Robin Soderling. Tomas Berdych.

Del Potro ~ Tsonga ~ Simon ~ Chardy ~ Verdasco ~ Djokovic ~ Gasquet

Re: The Official U.S Open 2010 Prediction Thread

I think this is the best time for Rafa to try to grab the USO for the career slam, with a lot of the top players not looking too good, plus Delpo not fully healthy.

I'll be cheering for anyone but Federer to win. Once of my faves would be ideal, but not getting hopes up.

Then again, it kinda seems like anyone could take this one. Maybe Ljubicic?

that is exactly what i am thinking as well. this title has proven to be quite elusive but it looks within reach now if he can just show up fresh, healthy, and relatively fit there.

Re: The Official U.S Open 2010 Prediction Thread

no way Nadull is reaching a final on fast hardcourts - if I had to guess I'd say Fed vs Djoker final this year

Re: The Official U.S Open 2010 Prediction Thread

I think there is going to be a surprise finalist this year. someone top 15 like youzhny, berdych, cilic etc.
the top 4 just dont seem to be the dominating force they were before

Andy Murray ~ Richard Gasquet ***David Nalbandian*** Rafael Nadal ~ Gilles Simon
