This changing of the guard can only take place if world #2 Roger Federer loses before the semis. Wonder what the odds of that happening are?

At any rate, to help things along, third seeded Murray has a first round bye  and will play either Evgeny Donskoy or Tatsuma Ito on Saturday or Sunday. On…

Novak Djokovic: Why the Reigning US Open Champion Will Win in Flushing Again

Perhaps he’s not yet forced Roger Federer to abdicate his throne as the king of the hard courts, but Novak Djokovic is certainly capable—and worthy—of wearing the crown. He will prove that once again when he wins his second major of the year—and second consecutive US Open.
