If Murray and/or Del Potro can challenge for the title, that would be great. Confidence makes a big difference, so hope this Olympics run spurs both of them to greater heights.

Well, Nadal made the USO 2009 semifinal and only lost to an on-fire Delboy who is a hard matchup for him on the surface and that was supposedly with another injury (which of course I don't buy but oh well). He is always a threat in BO5 if he doesn't meet someone who's able to annihilate him with a power game such as Rosol.

Del Potro - Murray would be great final or Roger - Del Potro too. But I fear Djodal once again.

Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro are clear contenders.

Federer has good chance of course, but... he needs help from fairly good draw and some fortune in later stages.

Nadal... he looks vulnerable, but maybe he can still dig deep there. I'm not convinced he will be in the final again.

Yeah, no new faces. So I pick all four OG semifinalists to win US Open.

Default Re: WWW US Open 2012: The City That Never Sleeps Discussion

It will be intersting.

I'll rank the favorites as so

1. Fed - Last GS winner, has great experience , world no 1, GOAT...

2. Nadal - why so high? Mastermind of uncle toni nadal has been gearing up for USO since 'Rosol'gate--- I DO believe there was an injury there but I DO believe it has been exaggerated and he is being extra cautious so he can be 100% for USO. Rafa always bounces back strongly from dissappointments.

3. Murray - He has become a man has performed exceptionally well at slams all year ( except maybe RG) great win in the Olympics the guy has the talent, and finally with Lendl the mental side of his game is coming together...he has a great chance if he can play like he did at Wimbledon (both tournies this year!)

4. Djokovic - Why so low? Seems to have dropped his intensity 10-15% and its making all the difference, not running for every ball not believing he can win evry point as he was in AO and all 2011, I think he's a little burn't out actually i noticed after his wimbledon SF how fine he was, i would have expected him to be a bit more gutted. I think he's an emotional mometum type of player he is on a bit of a low, but he could turn it around at any point...maybe USO is the inspiration he needs?

5. Del Potro is making some noise again..Good for him! Too early to say for sure whether he will be a real contender for USO...but he is one hell of a threat I dont want him anywhere near Murrays draw thanks...i'd rather take Tsonga/Ferrer or Berdych please. ( yes i know the H2H w/ Ferrer and Berdych are less favorable) ---but Del Potro is sort of an unkown quantity and slightly scares me!

There's a strong chance it won't be. First of all there's a 50-50 chance of Djodal being same half, and if not then neither are a lock in their semis or even their quarter if one of them has Del Potro in it.

No, no, not time for Rafa. A R16/QF would be respectable. Get healthy, target the WTF and AO.

Would really like a Murray/Pony final actually.

I also wouldn't write of Nadal. This is just the kind of situation he loves and is motivated by.

It's nice to take a breather here from the flame wars in the other threads, lol.
Anyway, I think this is going to be the most interesting and wide open USO in a long while. It's pretty much up for grabs. Fed, Rafa, Novak, Murray, even dark horses like Delpo and Tsonga are in with a shot. Personally I'm rooting for Fed, but Murray and Delpo I think are strong candidates. Out of respect for Novak because he's defending champ and the other contenders should be (based on most recent form):
1. Djokovic
2. Murray
3. Federer
4. Del Potro
5. Nadal
6. Tsonga (or who else at 6?)
