I want Murray to win the US Open
 
He is way to good to still have 0 Slams if you look at Novak with 5 and Nadal with 11...even DelPo has 1 and imo Murray is a much better tennisplayer.

He needs to bring something special though, a Grand Slam final is like nothing else.

As Lendl said during this years AO, look at the people he has played in those GS-finals. Federer played lights out tennis in the USO-final 2008. Fed also played very good in the AO-final 2010. Djokovic was laying the foundation in 2011 at their AO-final. And this years Wimbledon was very very close and Federer WAS lucky getting that 2nd set, in set 3 and 4 Federer was far superior though.

The prize ceremony at this years Wimbledon was very tough to watch, and this is coming from a huge Federer admirer.

LETS GO ANDY AND GET THAT 1ST GRAND SLAM IN NEW YORK!

Oh, if Murray doesnt win then i hope Federer does!

Nope, I see Federer crushing Murray again in the final.

You do? What about Nadal and Djokovic?

6-1 6-3 6-0 07-17-2012 09:11 AM

Murray is at an advantage in that he does not have to play Nadal in the semi-final, if Nadal stays at #3 (though I think Nadal will get to #2 and possibly end up drawing Murray). If Murray does somehow draw Nadal, it will be a very interesting encounter, especially as Nadal won their last encounter and they're 1-1 in the US Open H2H. It's a great opportunity for one to pull ahead of the other.

he's not better than any of the top 3 when they play their best tennis.

he needs a scenerio like wimby '12 AND hope whoever he meets in the final has an off day.

in other words, its not likely to happen. which is too bad.

You might be right- altough i dont think he has peaked yet. I expect more to come out of him from his work with Lendl

Sorry. Always Roger, sexiclass masterclass class class Federer Swiss band brass.

It would be a truly interesting scenario if Murray could win the US Open and take the #1 spot at the end of the year.

Flash O'Groove 07-17-2012 09:16 AM

It would be great. If he could win, he may enter in "Murray 2.0 mode" la Djokovic. 2013 would be almost unpredictable, with four top player in form at the same time, four different slam-winners...

Kinda hope he wins gold at Wimbledon would be special for the host country to finally have a British male come thru.

I bet he would MUCH rather have a USO-trophy though

i think you are right, but i'm not sure he is going to reach that peak in 6 weeks either

the guy really good. too bad for him there are 3 guys in the world better than he is. and unfortunately, thats not going to get him as us open trophy this year (which will go to novak)

So you go with Novak...Its a toss up really imo, but Novak didnt look interested in Wimbledon for some odd reason, he needs to step up bigtime.

Evan77 07-17-2012 09:22 AM

It's not going to be easy. I can see him beating Nadal, but not Djokovic or Fed at the USO. If he can somehow improve his second serve I'd say it's possible. His serve (especially second serve) is his biggest weakness. His FH does look better than before but he he still needs to improve that shot too.

and yeah, I'd love to see Andy winning his first slam ... poor guys is so underrated here ...

Seany 07-17-2012 09:23 AM

Not just because I'm a fan, but I can't see anybody but Federer winning it. The US Open has been his best slam for the past 2 years, even though he didn't win it, he played his best tennis by far, going out to Djokovic having had match point both times.

The fast surface massively favors his game, it's the only slam where I don't worry so much if he was to be drawn against Nadal, he can simply hit though him, he has Djokovic and Murray's number too. I would pick him in all 3 of those match ups on that surface.

Also take into account, that Federer has more in the tank at this stage of the season, especially with the Olympics this year, I don't think Rog will be as tired as the other guys. He is the smart pick, but at the same time I wouldn't rule out a return to dominance of Djokovic.

Good post, agree about his second serve, he gives it to much air imo. He needs to add a couple of mph and avoid those short second serves that landes in the middle of the box.

No! I've betted hard that we will be slamless in 2012. It was paying 2/1.

Seany 07-17-2012 09:30 AM

I would love to see Nadal drawn against Rosol again. Night session on Ashe, under the lights, big noisy crowd, after what happened at Wimbledon...Could you imagine? That would be fun to watch :)

Rosol will lose very easily. His match against Nadal was a fluke performance. Nadal is also one of the best students of the game, and he learns from his mistakes. He'll find a way to win. Nadal lost to Djokovic in a 7-5 5th set after leading 4-2 at the Australian Open this year, proving that Nadal was able to close the gap against his biggest rival and overcome the greatest challenge of his career.
