    Wow that's great Arvind. I was planning to go for QF but couldn't in the end.
    How was the experience? You picked the right event when Maestro was at his best...

    Ya, I took a chance. Bought the finals ticket when it was cheap. After Novak won, tickets were being sold at a starting price of $295. Was planning on selling the ticket if Federer lost as I would have made a profit of almost 400% Was more like a win-win situation for me. But I enjoyed every moment of this. Made a hash of last years USO final as both Roger and Novak lost in the SFs. But this event made up for it.

    US Open draw:

    Nadal:

    R1 Coric
    R2 Schwartzman or Qualy
    R3 Fognini
    R4 Raonic
    QF Djokovic
    SF Nishikori or Ferrer

    Federer:
    R1 Mayer
    R2 Baghdatis
    R3 Kohlschreiber
    R4 Karlovic/Isner
    QF Berdych/Gasquet
    SF Murray/Wawrinka
    F Djokovic

    Djokovic:
    R1 Souza
    R2 Pospisil
    R3 Seppi
    R4 Goffin
    QF Nadal (o Raonic)
    SF Nishikori
    F Federer

    Murray:
    R1 Kyrgios
    R2 Mannarino
    R3 Bellucci
    R4 Anderson
    QF Wawrinka
    SF Federer
    F Novak

    Looks like Federer has similar draw like 2012 when he got knocked by Berdych in QF.
    He should be relatively fresh this year but age is not in his side.
    Nevertheless a tough draw. Looks like its Novak's trophy to lose.
    Have a feeling Nadal may finally come thru' this one as a dark horse!!

    If Nadal comes through Novak, he will win for sure !!!

    Even if Roger reaches semi/final he will tired as he has to come through tough fellows. Next year Wimbledon la 18ku try pannuvom .

    You might never know. I for one however find it incredibly difficult to see Nadal getting through Djokovic. This has traditionally been the worst part of the season for him and I really cannot see him having a resurgence like the one he had in 2013. He won both the follow up events that year and made a clean sweep at the US Open.
    As for Federer, I don't know what to expect of him for this one. An SF appearance looks highly probable and then it's anybody's game. Berdych's looked spent all year and apart from Isner, I dont think anybody can cause him much trouble.
