Did you know that in the last 3 years, Stan is 10/10 in the finals!

That stat alone promises a great match.

However, I think Nole is hungry again and will show it the way he will play tonight.

I have never seen anyone having a easier road the final that what Djokovic has got this USopen. 1 walkover, 1 finished in 2 mins, Only 2 sets against an Injured tsonga and again.. Monfils returning from an injury in semis.

i think that dkokovic will win in 4 sets,but i would like to see stan the man win his 3rd major only so that murray is in the same conversation as wawrinka rather then the "big 4"

Pros for Wawrinka:

1. He can take Novak's time away here more than at FO.
2. Novak knows Wawrinka can beat him.
3. Novak may be sporting a shoulder injury.
4. Novak has not been tested and may be rusty.
5. Stan has more variety and is smart. 
6. Djokovic has suffered a few bigger losses this year.

Pros for Djokovic

1. He's a 12 time Slam champ.
2. He's still very confident.
3. He hasn't exerted hardly any energy this tournament.
4. Stan is sometimes temperamental. Not anywhere like he used to be though.
5. He is hungry.
6. Serve is usually more consistent than Stan's.
7. Wawrinka seems to time the ball better on his backhand on slower surfaces.


All said and done, I'd go for Stan. And have done. But this could be anyone's.  First set really key.

What's the weather like in New York?

Only 33% Humidity. I'd say Djoko in 4.

Yeah, but is that a good thing or a bad thing? Stan isn't knackered.... and Novak hasn't been fine tuned. That can work against him big time.

Also Mats Wilander is an idiot.  He thinks it's a done deal for Novak to get 18 slams... lol. Knows nothing about human biology or entire Open Era stats. Form and reflexes can disappear over night (well OK not that fast, but within the year). Doubts creep in fast.  Look what happened to Federer, Sampras, and Nadal.

He does not; he just says so because that is what sells - they always try to oversell the current top star.

He's an idiot. He was saying the same about Nadal.  Djokovic is just a baseline bot. He will never be GOAT even with 20 slams. And he'll never have 7 Wimb titles... that's where it really matters.

Ok....so looks like I was not the only one.

Mats was so convinced Murray woudl win v Djoko.


Mats is turning into a McEnroe. Cause there is a chance that Djoko overtakes Federer.....but Sure? That's a long way off.

Really hope Wawrinka can do what we know he can.  Devastating backhand. Take time away. Stay focused. Hopefully all that time Novak spent sunning it up with his easy lousy draw will be his undoing.

I was more perplexed when the presenters said "will Wawrinka go down with the other greats who have won this event?"

Que montage......Borg!! When did he win it!! Eurosport utter crap!!

Haha yeah you'd really think he would have.  No idea why he didnt. Bad luck, I guess?  I mean he nailed 2 very different surfaces and conditions (and they were different then). But it never transferred to US Open hard courts for the title.

I think the US Open was on Clay when Borg made the finals. Possibly exhaustion played a key role in him not winning 3 Slams in a year.

Stan can only play his best is he is allowed to.
Nole's returning and defending will make it difficult for Stan to spread his wings.

It's best of five and Stan is fit, so they will be energy dips with Nole where Stan may catch fire, but Nole will want this too much and he likes USO courts.

Quite surprised the US didn't proceed with Super Saturday and have the final on Monday night so not to clash with the NFL fixtures. As they are about the ratings.

When you see luck and retrieving like that which wins the point, it breaks the heart.

It was clay at first (well they called it dirt and dirt it was) but the last 2 or 3 times Borg played there it was HC.

This will go the RG way, 1st Set Choko, and then Stan flying.

I hope there is emergency team of Doctors waiting for Djoko, just in case he gets broken by Stan and calls his usually distracting and useless MTOs.

Stan has to drag it out.  Novak's shoulder issue may resurface. 

But Wawrinka's serve has to improve too.

You buying this too? Djoko is healthy, but Stans ballistic hits will dislocate Djokos shoulder anyway.

Why aren't these players trying to do different things?  Come to the net , drop shots... you name it.  They seem to just play Novak at his own game.  Great if you bring your A game, but crap any other time.  Novak hates variety and having to move his boring ass off the baseline.

When I play at my local club, all the big hitters think I' just gonna supply them with winners, and they quickly realized what a frustrating little bastard I am. You don't beat guys like Djok by just trying to move them left and right.  Even this poor fool Wilander is saying it as I write this!

Because this is not club tennis...returns of 200kmph serves come like bullets at your shoelaces...cooo Daniel this is not a video game! Laugh

And also, Nole's is a very sophisticated game..he doesn't have natural physical power like Stan bit he is compensating for it with his brains...

People underestimate Nole's bh, it has fantastic variety esp with length and angles, Stan can't deal with it...he is as much of a rhythm player as Nole, probably even more so.

Plus, Stan's game is very tough to play and execute...
