I love how this slam was perfectly legitimate but now that Nadal has walked, its the opposite. Lets face it, even without Nadal or Federer playing, there is still a good chance Djoker will face a tougher draw Rafa in 2017 and 2019.
I hope you all remember the prediction I made.
Once someone new wins a slam other than the big 3, it will be like opening Pandora's box, the big 3 era will be over.
Novak is the last man standing out of big 3 in the USO.
And French open might not happen this year.
Fed can still get hot at a slam and do big things. Just needs to manuveur through the early rounds relatively untroubled, and hope that Novak loses before they meet. I back Roger against anyone else, when he is on.
