Federer will win a record 6th USO and NO ONE will stop him

Thats right, you heard it here first. I have never seen anyone as ready and hungry as Fed to win the USO. Hes had a disgusting clay and grass court season which makes him all the more hungry and ready to become the first man in the open era to win 6 USO titles.

Hes preparation is going well as well. He did the hard work in Toronto and in Cincy he will fix a few small things. Mark my words, he will be in prime form come the USO. No one will stop him. No doubt Murray is playing amazing tennis, but Fed knows when it comes to slams Murray is there for the taking.

Those two routine losses in hard court slams will come back to haunt Murray and make him push when under pressure. You know Federer is a different animal in the slams. I dont see who can stop him. He has Djokovic's number at slams as well, especially the USO.

Nadal has never made a final at the USO, and i doubt he will this time. There are too many obstacles on hard court for him(Murray, Djokovic, Berdych, Soderling, even Roddick) and Fed himself have nothing to fear from Nadal at the USO. It took Nadal 3 tries to beat monoFed at wimby and he sure as hell aint doing at the only fast court slam left.

Federer wants this and hes getting it. Yes, it is that simple.

Would love to see Roger win, but I don't see it happening. Honestly, I don't think he'll win another slam - one more at the most. He clocked up quite a few slam past his prime, which ended after AO07, but now he seems to far past his prime. Federer at 75-85% of peak level could still win slams, but Federer below 75% can't.

I see Nadal and Murray as the main favourites for the US Open.

i hear you, but i think he is getting back to top shape soon. remember toronto was for getting his confidence back after a slump, and he did it with wins against someone who has really bothered him of late and a top class player like djokovic. and you know he brings it even harder at the slams.

may be, who knows, after all, he did not win all those 16 slams by luck:p

thats right mimi. hope youre well ;)

He has just as big a chance as Nadal to win it, with Murray and Berdych as other main contenders.

nadal cant be counted in with fed and murray. murray has slayed him twice in hard court slams including the USO, and he is playing really well now.

Say what you will about Rafa on HCs, fact is he's beaten Fed at 3 of the 4 Slams, and the last 3 finals straight. Fed's best victory in the meetings was in 4 sets on his best surface and in Rafa's 1st Wimbledon final, and even that match was closer than the score indicated. So don't conclude anything about what might happen at the USO, particularly if they meet in the final.

I think Murray is the favourite, might change if it were a Murray/Fed final but Fed isn't in the form to make the final here, at least not yet, he may be in two weeks time. I can't agree with Djokovic ahead of Rafa either, I'm not even sure I agree with him being ahead of Berdych and Soderling.

Manequin75
08-17-2010, 11:37 PM
of course fed is the favorite easily. His main competition comes from nadal, murray and Djokovic. Rafa hasnt even been in the finals yet, Murray has never won a GS and Djko always comes short against Fed in NY. The rest need to play more consistently to have a shot. SO yes fed is the clear favorite being in the finals for six straight years (he is extremely comfortable on USO courts).

But having said that I dont think he is the sure shot for the title as the OP puts it. The top favorite yes. But vulnerable this year more than others. ALl that could change if Fed steamrolls everybody at Cinci (he plays very well there)

interesting. thats not the worst list, but djokovic and murray has been to the final while nadal hasnt, and its clear why. again nadal got routined by murray in toronto so i dont see much changing.

I think Murray is the favourite, might change if it were a Murray/Fed final but Fed isn't in the form to make the final here, at least not yet, he may be in two weeks time. I can't agree with Djokovic ahead of Rafa either, I'm not even sure I agree with him being ahead of Berdych and Soderling.

djokovic played well against fed in toronto believe me. i think hes right there below fed and murray.

only if he doesnt have to go through fed. Murray cannot take 3 sets off fed in one match. Sure if fed loses early then I think andy would be favored. But I dont think fed is losing early. And I have a very strong feeling fed+murray will be in the same half and Rafa-Djko will be in the other half.

when Rafa won RG, W and AO for the first time he had to go through fed. This time might be no different. Fed takes out ANdy and meets Rafa in the finals. ANything can happen in a final.

Fed and Djkovich race to #2 for US Open could be tricky.

Subtracting points gained last year in Cincy by both of them (fed=1000 winner and Djko=600 finalist)

Djoko: 6485
Fed: 6215

So Djko is ahead by 270 points. SO If Dkjo makes the QF in cincy Fed will have to get to the finals. ANd if Djko gets to the SF Fed will have to win the event. ANything less than QF from Djko and Fed should be fine with SF. Infact that produces a tie (if Djko loses in R16 and Fed loses in SF they gain 90 and 360 points which puts them at the exact same total). If that happens I would assume US open would obviosly seed Fed higher coz of his prior year performance right?

ANd Djko losing in R16 is a big possibility as he is facing Isner/Nalbandian. And Fed losing in SF is also a big possibility as he will play Rafa. LOL

To be fair I could easily see any of the top guys losing to eacother, Fed and Murray are also vulnerable to the big hitters. Rafa is there because he has had an excellent season. Murray is there because it is his best surface and he is coming into some good form. Federer is there on past results. None of them are there because they are overwhelming favourites.

Rafa lost to DelPo last year but it was during the lowest point of his career by a long way, and he supposedly had an abdominal strain, though he probably would have lost anyway. Before that it was Murray and Ferrer, hardly ballbashers.

But to count him out entirely would be entirely stupid. There was a time people thought that of him about Wimbledon or any hc major. You used to be on my ignore list. I can't imagine or remember why, now.

Sounds right, except for Nadal being there.

It does sound right. Especially, people smarter than you not underestimating Rafa. Oh, and btw, lame to give me a bad rep because you couldn't back up your post on how Rafa always have other Spaniards every slam. And I'm the 'tard? To discount an 8 majors winning Champion out, over one that never has? I'd say the fan of that player was more 'tard than the fan of the player that has won majors. Personally, I've not seen any media say that Rafa was the favorite, but one of the favorites. Which, yes, sounds about right.

Think I said on one of these threads that I feel it's between AndyM and Roger. If it is the case, the final being Murray/Fed, I hope that Andy finally comes good. At least, there won't be anymore, "Will He Ever Win A Slam?" questions/topics/threads.

Murray cannot take 3 sets off fed in one match.

I love these arbitrary rules that seem to spring up whenever the same thing happens twice.

I don't see any reason why Murray can't beat Federer in a best of five set match. He took two sets off him a couple of weeks ago without reply - would he have naturally gone on to lose the next three sets if they'd kept playing? Despite being younger and arguably fitter?

I think you do an injustice to Federer when you make arguments like this. Federer beat Murray in the two slam finals because he played great tennis. It wasn't some inability of Murray to win a five set match, or some monumental choke.

syc23
08-28-2010, 12:56 PM
Federer is the favourite no doubt. I think Murray really needs to face off with Roger and beat him to have his 'changing of the guard' moment to get over that hump of never beating the best player in the game in a slam. We all saw how much confidence this gave to Federer when he defeated Sampras in Wimbledon.
