The same number of points that Djokovic won vs Nishikori in the deciding set of their 2011 meeting.
Which do you value more, a US Open meeting between Nadal and Murray, or a meeting one month later at Tokyo?
Exactly my point, Murray beat Nadal at the 2008 US Open. That is why Nadal beating Murray at the 2011 US Open wasn't a good sign for Murray. He's taken a step back vs Nadal.
And before you point to Murray's 2012 US Open title, just remember that Djokovic played rather horrid in the final.
