    Hoping for Fed vs Safin in the final personally, going 5 sets, either player winning is fine with me although it would be amazing to see someone win 3 slams in a calendar year.

    We'll probably see another Fed/Roddick final though, hopefully with Fed winning 1,1 & 0 just to stick it in the face of Americans that still think he's the man.

    Other than that maybe a surprise winner would be fun to see, like Henman or Moya although that might be asking for too much.

    I'd like to see Roddick win. Just for the sheer reason of seeing you haters silenced, that and fueling the fire. :twisted:

    Picking anyone other than Federer at this stage of his career is a mistake.

    I would like to see Agassi win, so he can then retire 'ala Sampras.....

    although if he wins it, I'm sure he'll play a few more tournaments (TMC Houston for sure.....)

    I'll be going for Fed, but if Roddick wins, I won't put a shotgun in my mouth and pull the trigger.

    Roger has become a great hard court player and I just don't see him being dismissed at the open. Roger has too much game right now and as boring as it may seem to have a long time number 1, Roger's just that good.

    Have we forgotten his recent 1st round loss to Hrbaty on hardcourts in Cincy? Federer is great, yes; unbeatable, no. Hrbaty is certainly not a contender for the U.S. Open, IMO.

    I'd like to see in order, the following win:

    Agassi,
    Federer,
    Moya,
    or
    (with a nod to Deuce),
    Glickstein.

    I'd love to see Agassi win so he has incentive to play for another ten years!

    Fed lost due to fatigue, it happens to the best of us.

    Agassi, i want him to blow through roddick, Federer, nadal, Hewitt, and Moya. Just to show all these young guns that old people can still kick their butts.

    I would like someone new to win a slam. Whether it be rising stars like Ancic or Pim-Pim(whom I think can do very well on Decoturf) or those who have been trying for a while like Henman or Haas. I also second Agassi pulling a Sampras.

    Of players who have a realistic chance:
    Federer
    Agassi
    Safin
    Moya

    Federer because the more of his tennis I see the more pleased I will be. Agassi, well, isn't it tough to think of a reason for him. Safin, if he gets to be at least temporarily mentally stable, I think we would see a few really good matches between him and Federer. He's the only guy who I can see right now giving a non-fatigued Federer much trouble. And Moya, I just don't want to see such a talented tennis player retire with just one slam.

    Roddick, Agassi, Henman, or Santoro. Maybe Safin.

    Federer's already won enough this year. I'd like to see someone really take him out when he's not making crazy errors. (Agassi or Hewitt could conceivably beat him, even when his game is on.)

    In front of my computer, obviously
    Jan-Michael Gambill!

    Just kidding. Actually, I would like to see Nicolas Kiefer win the USOpen. After all the finals he's made in the US this year, its time for him to win something, and it might as well be something big. Or Mark Philipoussis, whose had a HORRIBLE year and would truly come out of nowhere to win and perform some type of miracle. But it won't bother me if Federer or Roddick win, as long as we have new Slam winners next year I guess.

    Federer, Safin, Agassi. I would like to see Nadal, Gonzo and Moya do well though.
