Which possible US Open Final would be the most exciting?

A simple question, and I do not wan't know, who your hero is. If you would not have a personal hero, which final setup do you think would make for the most exciting match? And why?

I am not going to put up the possible finalists, as I do not want to create a spoiler and I will post my opinion later and put up a poll maybe. I have a very obvious preference for the final though...

DelPotro vs Nishikori. Another David vs Goliath, except that, I wouldn't mind if Goliath wins in this story :)

Edited: Didn't realize they both are in the same side of the draw. Too bad :(
 
Wawrinka in pretty good form. I aware, he's upset Djoko a couple of times before. I confident Djoko can beat him this time if they meet but Stan is a dangerous opponent if he peaks! Let's see what semis bring!

Djoko vs waw, happy Novak will be fresh going in this time though, unlike French 2015

The one we are getting will be the most exciting, the other ones are non-existent so they do not particularly excite me.

Those that do get to the final are the ones that are the better players, i.e. WANT IT MORE, concentrate harder, and are fittest.

The two that fit that bill I want to - and will- see in the final.

Two added notes to the above post is that Wawrinka has shown to be able to stand up to Nole, both mentally and physically, so I would "prefer", when given a pre-semi choice, Stan.

And I wish for Nishi to prove me wrong and stay fit for a potential final, throwing down the gauntlet with regards to the fight for the baseline, and the dropshot and net options, which he excelled at vs Murray. Both would be equally great to witness and observe, provided they stay fit.

Nishikori has been training all his life for this form level, and the maturity to carry it through - having me hoping he pulls it off, that this is his time.

Djoker - Wawa.

Djoker would beat Nishi comfortably.

Gael would lose in straights after leaving some trick shots, no matter his opponent is Wawa or Nishi.

Djokovic - Nishikori

Stan is good at AO and FO, not so much here. Sorry, Monfils is good for a set or two. Not a major final.

Any competitive final. Which means Monfils-Wawrinka, Monfils-Nishikori, Nishikori (in USO 2014 mode) against Djokovic, or Djokovic against Stanimal (i.e Stan shows up and plays well).

Wouldn't it be funny, after all this talk of Djok's opponents getting injured/tanking after the first set, if Wawrinka went full God mode in the final and blew him off the court.
Which is exactly what I suspect(and fear) might happen. Wawrinka in full on Stanimal mode is the last player you want to be seeing in a GS final when you're not battle-hardened enough to withstand the onslaught.

Right now?

Monfils Nishikori. .1% chance that's happening

I'm not excited
Monfils vs Wawrinka
Already crossing my fingers.
Monfils Wawrinka would be a classic
Gurufils / Stanimal
Hoping Djokovic crushes the dreams of his haters once more :D

Ideal final just requires Djokovic in it. Either of the two other semifinalists would produce a riveting final as long as Djokovic is present.

As of now, Novak-Stan. Stan knows how to beat Novak in Slam finals and Novak wants revenge for last year's RG.

Such vibes.....!!!! :)

Wanting Monfils to reach his first slam final obviously means hating Djokovic :mad: o_O
I wonder if these folks who "want" Monfils to reach his first Slam final would still want the same thing if it meant he had to beat Fed or Nadal

Wawrinka vs. Djokovic.

Nishikori won't be able to put three great back-to-back-to-back performances (Murray, Wawa & Nole).

Most Fed fans would have been happy with Roddick winning Wimbledon in 09 so your weak ass troll attempt is moot.

"Most" Fed fans? Really!?

Most Fed fans still want him to win another bloody Slam (regardless of who he beats) after he's won 17 of them!

All possibilities are equally exciting to me; I'll be happy if any of these last four guys come away with the major.

However, it seems like I'm in the minority about being excited about Nishikori. If Kei makes the final, that will mean that he has defeated two guys in a row who have won slams in the last two years. If he's mentally and physically able to do that, maybe he's turned a corner and has a shot at winning the whole thing.

A classic 5 set match featuring Djokovic & Wawrinka. It's been forever since the USO final has turned into a great match, we're due for an epic final.
