US Open - The slacker’s guide to who might win

Roger Federer screams in triumphMen:

In a huge turnaround from previous years the favourite is a man who has never passed the quarter-finals previously, however if that man is called Nadal then allowances are made. It will be interesting to see whether Federer can respond like the champion he was is. Murray has a cushy draw – unless Del Potro is as good as he seems.

Nadal’s Quarter

Jelena Jankovic watches the ballWomen:

The Women’s draw is eerily quiet without Sharapova and Henin. We will see if Elena the (almost) great’s golden breakthrough is enough to take her to final glory or if Safina continues her rampage through the field. Time for Wozniacki to break through.
