what do you guys think...I think it'll lift some pressure of him; he now knows he can beat the likes of Roger and Novak where it matters..

Depends on his slam final opponents. I think SW19 is the only place where he can win 50:50 matches, but if he's the better player in paper (hasn't been yet in finals), he can win.

I think it was already launched at Wimbledon.

Hope so, but I think actually finishingmove is right-Wimbledon and even Australia this year seemed to set the stage as well, but this is confirmation.

Well look at it this way: Murray's main problem many people feel is the pressure of big finals. Today the pressure would have been atleast equal to the pressure he feels in slam finals so in that sense he has overcome a massive step. He will have confidence now and hopefully he can win the US Open. If he was to win the US Open then he could definitely be the man of 2013.

Hopefully it will do to him what Davis Cup did for Djokovic at the end of 2010. Murray should win at least 1 slam in the next 5.

Tough to say, really. In retrospect it might, just like the doubles gold helped RF win USO 2008. The USO will be intriguing none the less.

Favorites for the US Open in order are Murray, Federer, del Potro, Djokovic and Nadal. Not sure about Nadal though.
