Who is going to win US Open 2018?

Who is going to win US Open this time around?In my opinion,Djokovic is the favourite after beating Nadal at Wimbledon this year in semifinal and then winning Wimbledon for the third time in his career.So I say this despite seeing Nadal and Federer.I am just amazed at his ability to win Wimbledon after such a bad and torrid time.After this,Nadal and Federer are favourites! In the women,Serena Williams,Angelique Kerber,Jelena Ostapenko and Petra Kvitova are favourites for the title.Sloane Stephens also might defend her title but that is unlikely.I want either Angelique Kerber or Sloanne Stephens to win US Open this time.In men,I want Nadal to win US Open but I think that Djokovic shall prove to be too strong for all men.Views?Tennis fans?

I also want Nadal to win, and I think Thiem knocking out Anderson will help (in theory should be an easier QF for Rafa) but I think the winner will come from Federer's side of the draw.

On another note, I haven't watched much of the tournament on Prime but when I have, Rusedski has made some pretty out there predictions that haven't come through: e.g Sabalenka reaching the final and Konta beating Caroline Garcia.

The Blue Planet I am a Rafael Nadal fan and I don't like Djokovic but how is he dishonest?

Because he had the audacity to break up the Federer-Nadal media w aankfest. Any other generation Djokovic would have gone down as the best of a generation. I really hope he overtakes Nadal. He deserves it because unlike Fed and Nadal he has had the entire media and most of the tennis community against him and unlike Nadal he is not a drugs cheat.

Ttliv man Nadal sued French Sports Minister for libel and defamation on false accusations of drug use.Yes he is good and quite physically strong but then I was talking about people accusing Djokovic and I was asking how is Djokovic dishonest?Yes Nadal,Federer and Djokovic fans are generally aggressive and ungracious towarda other players' fans but all three are great and all accusations against these players are ridiculous and stupid!All three players in general have cordial relations with each other and Nadal,Djokovic and Federer plus Murray are quite respectful towards each other!

Novak for the win. Del Potro didn't quite get his forehand in with enough consistency to really trouble the Djoker.

Djokoviv was definitely the best player of the tournament, but imo Thiem deserves an honourable mention for beating Anderson and as good as losing to Rafa by the toss of a coin. For a player that's only really excelled on clay and shown no real prowess on hard courts, those were two big steps in his career.

9tics yes Djokovic was the best player overall in US Open and Serena Williams should have played better v Osaka but Osaka deserved to win the tournament!
