Starting in a few months time is the final Grand Slam of the year the US Open 2011. There have been two players dominating tennis in 2011 and that has been Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, but who is really going to do well at the US Open and take the title?
Novak Djokovic has only lost 1 match all year and that was at the 2011 French Open. I hate to say it, but I cant see Novak winning the US Open 2011 as the number 1 seed. I think there will be too much pressure for him to handle (although I think he will make the semifinals).
Rafael Nadal seems to always be in great form and Im sure at the US Open 2011 it will be no different. Rafa likes the high bouncing hard courts of the US and it fits his game very nicely. I can see Rafael making the final of yet another Grand Slam event this year.
However, my winner for the US Open 2011 has to be Roger Federer. I think after Wimbledon he is going to be very hungry and will put absolutely everything into getting this title. Roger’s game fits in perfectly with the courts and the surroundings in the US. He will also have a lot of support from his superstar American friends. Roger is my prediction to take the title.
Outsider of the tournament: My outsider is John Isner. The American is playing some great tennis at the moment and just won the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in Newport with relative ease. Isner to make the Quarterfinals and knock out some top players!
