Just like I predicted, dude is having a big 2011. Playing out of his mind since 2010's US open. He's running shit this year. Gonna pick up at least one more major.
Novak is playing too good right now. He's on that level RIGHT NOW where no matter how good the other player is, he seems unbeatable. The same way Davydenko and Nalbandian were in their respective years where they blew Rafa and Fed away in consecutive tournaments. The only difference is, is that Novak is healthier/more fit and more consistent with his results, and not having just one good year.
If the pressure doesn't get to him, he will be the new top dog and not one of them. I would to love to see people like Berdych who needs to get his head straight, Delpo (now that he's healthy again), and Nalbandian (since he seems more fit) start winning again. Those three along with Tsonga, Raonic, and Baghdatis and Dimitrov seeming to find their form, will make the rest of the year fun to watch.
I still want Fed to win as much as he can, since I've always been a fan of his.
What are you talking about? Davydenko and Nalbandian never blew out Federer. And they were NEVER as good as Rafa or Federer in their primes.
Novak blew out to Federer at the French Open because pressure got to him, and Nadal is going through some adversity right now. Give credit where cred it is due, Djoker is playing well.
The new Australian kid, if he starts to get some more confidence, is pretty legit. If Novak can win the US Open, then he would have won 3 of the 4 Grand Slams of the year...but can he do it for 2-3 years straight like Federer? It all depends on how Nadal will respond to this adversity.
