Maybe next year he'll lose early? Nadal clearly not a favourite at US Open - Murray is up there though - matches well with Novak on fast HC, made 2 finals vs Novak's 4 but better conversion rate of 50%, key issue was mental not the game.
Until Nadal shows decline on clay, which he hasn't yet, he's still the favourite there. And by a significant margin.
Nadal is huge favorite for RG ofc, and if he plays at his best no one will be even close, but behind him is Nole and that makes him a fav too, maybe next year Nadal crushes early too at RG? Its possibile, not likely but it is...
