Friday will tell us more. I still see Nadal as the favourite. However, if Djoko wins and goes on to win the title, he could return to the top and dominate again.
It’s a huge match on Friday! Nadal if he wins may get 18 slams and be right on feds tail, the GOAT tag would be in sight and it would make him huge fav for us open. If Novak wins and gets 13 slams, he’ll then probs be fav for us open.
Going forward I see the majors being between Nadal and Djokovic. I think feds loss today may affect him mentally, so I don’t see him winning the us open this year.
He's not holding any title at the moment. Why would we think his new era is going to start again? It would be premature to suggest that even if he ends up having a victorious outcome at the grandest event of all.
can't go by anything we've seen yet. as I said before Wimbledon started, I'll need to see Djokovic in a final before conceding that he's anywhere close to "back." given the draw thus far (which on paper could have been a lot more difficult), up to and including Nishikori who, apart from the hiccup in 2014, he completely owns, I can't draw any conclusions. but getting to the final means he beats a pretty damn good Nadal so Novak's definitely worth reassessing at that point.
