If he could hit his best form in the 2nd week he could definitely beat anyone except for Roger. If there was a year when that happened, and Roger didnt play or was upset early, there is a chance Blake could win.
The Agassi match last year - how did Blake not win that match? Real momentum coming into the match, playing well on the day, couldn't execute the win.
Sure he could win the US Open but it would take a weird set of events - like the Gaudio year. I'm not saying he's like Gaudio, I'm saying that year Roland Garros was strange, Nalbandian injured in the semis, Coria chokes in the final. If Blake gets to the final and finds his opponent is Berdych, Gasquet, Murray, etc and it's their first final too, then he's probably favourite to win.
