With August comes, the USO series finally unfold. The two most dominant players this year, Nadal and Federer will likely battle for the No.1 spot. They have faced each other in all other slam finals except the US open where they narrowly missed out on each other a few times. Will we finally see them facing off with Novak out of the scene and Andy suffering a slump? Nadal in recent years have not performed well in the USO (Lost to Fognini, Pouille) while Federer digs deep. But perhaps things can be a little different with Nadal re-discovering his hard court game this year.
Let's see if MTF gets it right this time.
We will see if Nadal has indeed rediscovered his hardcourt game this year.
He has not been really tested against great Hardcourt players, with the exception of Federer.
And he lost against Querrey in Acapulco.
