    (**US, others did not exist because of the Great War)
    (***US, others not held because of WWII)

    That is if he wins, he still needs to get past Djokovic, who is in his prime and playing on his best surface.

    Yes and that is why I said
    "if he wins the AO final."

    Murray is also in his prime and is the last person to win a slam on hard courts.

    It is game on! Looking forward to a good final.
