Novak Djokovic and his chances of winning the cup?
The form that the Serbian is in, it is quite sure that he is the strongest contender to win the US Open this year. With already 3 Grand slams to his name this year, a 4th will be the icing on the cake. If he wins the tournament, he will go down in the books as the best player ever.
