Murray's Best Chance? Can he get his first major at the US Open?

I think this is Murray's best chance to get his Major titles count going. Andy just beat Federer and he's obviously getting a little out of his prime and has a family to take care of. Nadal in New York has never been a winning combination, and Murray really has success against him on hard courts and he beat Rafa in Toronto as well. Murray is playing great tennis and is playing much more aggresive, which helped him to a Rogers Cup win last week. I see Andy Murray taking his first major title at the US Open, his chance is too big. If he keeps his Rogers Cup form going and he's being aggresive, nobody can beat him.

Thoughts on Murray at the 2010 US Open?

My prediction: Murray 2010 US Open Champion

Re: Murray's Best Chance? Can he get his first major at the US Open?

Nadal is a good matchup for him on hard courts. He can beat Djokovic. I don't like Roger chances based on Toronto, but he is still a contender.
In previous matches against Federer, he usually stayed passive, just keeping the ball in. He finally realized that only Nadal can beat him this way. If he continues to play aggressively throughout the Open, then he has a good chance, unless he meets someone on fire, extremely on fire.

So yes, he has a very good chance, but he should not take Cincinnati too serious. Could burn out.

Someone has to take out Federer for him hopefully. Those courts are advantageous to Roger especially over Bo5 format. Anyone else he should be able to handle.

Hopefully Brands can take out Federer and make the F against Murray.

Re: Murray's Best Chance? Can he get his first major at the US Open?

Murray has historically done well in slams where he wasn't the one of the bigger pre-tournament faves (AO 2010, USO 2008) and crashed out when he was (AO 2009, USO 2009). Those two times he lost to Verdasco and Cilic I think and never even got near enough to Federer/Nadal to play them. Sure, winning in Toronto was impressive, but it didn't end up meaning anything for him last year. On the face of it this year could be different with Federer struggling, but Murray has come up short too many times for me personally to pick him as the guy I think will win.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

5-seters are a complete different stories. I think he will lose in semis unfortunately.

Wouldn't surprise me.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

I can see him winning it. I've never said or though that before. I'd make him favourite on this day.

Having said that, I fully expect Federer to play a great US Open too.

If on different halves of the draw, that would be my final prediction.

he's not going to win it this year, he'll get close but i just dont see him winning

it sounds weird because he's won 8 already and murray has none but i think nadal wants it more than anyone and when he wants something like he wants this whats going to stop him?

Only 3 players are standing in his way: Federer, Berdych and Soderling. If he can keep the aggressive playing style going and avoid the Monfils type brainfart bagel sets then he has a chance.

I think it's his best chance, but we have yet to see how he'll do in a 3rd major final. He needs to cut the mid-match lapses out entirely as well, last year he had that loss to Cilic as well as losing the set to Capdeville

I like his chances
