This is my top ten for the US Open.

1. Roger Federer
2. Novak Djokovic
3. Tomas Berdych
4. Mikhail Youzhny
5. Lleyton Hewitt
6. Andy Roddick
7. Richard Gasquet
8. James Blake
9. Marat Safin
10. Rafael Nadal

From a non-bias opinion, this is Nadal's worst surface out of the 4 grand slams. The US Open is an ultra fast hardcourt. Nadal's victory at Indian Wells was on a slow to medium paced hard court. I expect Nadal to make it to the QFs like last year. That doesn't mean I'm not pulling for him, I will root for him every match and hope he wins the US Open.

if you expect him to make the quarters then why is he at 10?

I would put Blake slightly above Nadal.

Djokovic and Berdych would be about even.

Youzhny would just be slightly below Nadal given Nadal's improvement in his overall game.

Federer against Nadal would be a toss up.

On the overall Scal Federer would be Favorite, and Roddick would hav decent chances too.

3. Murray (if 100%)
4. Nadal
5. Berdych
6. Roddick
7. Gasquet

9. Safin

Imo Youznhy and Davydenko do not have the credentials to win a grand slam
