    Neither, he's cooked on fast hard courts.

    Based on his past assets, US open, since its best of 5 (endurance), outdoor, he's usually mentally strong in slams, draw is easier than only playing memebers of the top 8 giving him time to get on a roll before meeting dangerous players, etc. He did win the olympics after all. But given his now suspect movement and mental strength, lack of ability to hit any kind of aggressive format, etc. it may be a nonissue as he would have almost no chance at either. We'll have to see what changes he makes next year.

    It seems the more the season wears on the more beat down Rafa's body is. I'd say if he can get his form back and be more selective about what events he plays he is more likely to win the USO.

    The US Open.

    He can't even win a set at the World Tour Final, let alone a match. There's no way he can win 4 or 5 matches at RR when the top players are much better than him on indoor.

    He has no chance of ever winning either at this point.
