Right after Wimbledon I thought JMDP would find his peak form right about now and would clinch the U.S. Open. Obviously his form has regressed. Djokovic would be the overwhelming favourite if healthy, otherwise it is pretty open. I wish your prediction comes true, I would much prefer a new slam winner.
I thought exactly the same, he was progressing very nicely. Unfortunately, the second half of his season has been awful.
I have seen the draw, and even though I've only had a chance to scan it rather than go through it in detail, it has been decreed.
SF - Djokovic def. Tsonga
SF - Murray def. Nadal
F - Murray def. Djokovic
I am quite pleased with Kamikaze's early draw, even in his poor form he should make the 4R, at least.
In the Women's I haven't yet decided whether Serena will beat Kvitova or Zvonareva in the final, but I will give the Czech and Russian notice by Sunday at the latest.
My company has seen fit to refund all losing singles if Murray wins the US Open, so I guess we can forget about getting a bonus this year - morons. It is effectively a free bet on Djokovic, as I see only him or Murray winning.
