Who will win the US Open?
 
So will Murray continue were he left off at Wimbledon or will djoker get his revenge? Or will there be a different winner?

Duncan Bell 07-11-2013 01:39 AM

Murray or Dimitrov, I should imagine.

Seems a bit early for this though. Monty and Cincy should give us a good idea.

Dimitrov???

Going for Del Potro. Should be interesting to see what odds Federer gets from the bookies, I might be tempted.

11.5 to 1 on my bookmaker right now :oops:

2.70 to 1: Djokovic
3.05: Murray
9.35: Nadal :shock:

Nadal is worth a bet IMO

He's never been beyond the 3rd round of a slam before. He does look a talent and seems to have the same playing style as federer but I think winning the US Open is somewhat unlikely.

Federer - surely the pattern from last year will hold and the Big 4 will one again divvy up the slams, with Fed and Murray trading this year.:)

Nadal looks a great opportunity I agree. Hmm. Wait or bet now? If Federer continues his dominant post-peak-but-in-prime game I could get even better odds on him.

I would love to see rog show everyone that he not finished yet.

jaggy 07-11-2013 04:41 AM

Murray is my choice but could go to any of him, Nad, Joke or delpo

Emiliano55 07-11-2013 04:49 AM

I would definitely bet on Nadal for this one.

bet now

If he reach the semi finals, it's easy to bet on his opponent and win whatever the final results if you the same in a possible final

spinovic 07-11-2013 06:24 AM

In all seriousness, at this point, I'd say -

1. Murray
2. Djokovic


3-4. Nadal, Federer (if healthy)
5. Delpo

6. Young up-and-comer (Janowicz, Dimitrov)

8. Berdych, Tsonga

10. Rest of the field


Murray and Djoker are heavy favorites on hard courts nowadays. Hard to see a winner outside of those two. Should it happen, it is hard to see it not still being Federer or Nadal, and now I'll throw Delpo in there close since he seems to be getting close to previous form and has won there before.

After that, I find it more likely that a young guy breaks through than one of the established top 10 guys actually wins. If it is one of the established guys, I think Berdych and Tsonga are most likely.

After that, draw names from a hat.

Chico 07-11-2013 06:51 AM

Actually it should be like this:

1. Djokovic
2. Murray

3. Delpo





4. The rest of the field

Nadal is not winning USO, so don't waste your money. Much better bet is Delpo at 11.5.

batz 07-11-2013 07:10 AM

As Veronique pointed out the other day, Murray is undefeated (4-0) versus Novak in the US Open Series, having beaten him in Canadia, Cincy (twice) and Flushing Meadows.

That, and the Wimbledon confidence wave makes Murray look like a slight favourite to me at this point.
