    Gave a crack at previewing the mens top contenders for the final grand slam of the year. Hopefully it helps when selecting who to tip.

    The Top Contenders:

    Roger Federer (Seed #3)
    At 36 years of age, Roger Federer remarkably looms as the favourite to win his sixth US open title and 20th grand slam. Few would have predicted Federer’s return to dominance in 2017. After missing much of the 2016 season with a knee injury, coupled with his most recent grand slam victory dating back to Wimbledon 2012, Federer’s golden days looked all but over. It makes Federer’s 2017 all the more incredible, as he has been almost flawless this year, winning both the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles.

    Federer only played one lead-up tournament following Wimbledon, where he continued his sparkling form, reaching the final of the Rogers Cup 1000 event before losing to a red-hot Alexander Zverev.

    Federer returns for his 17th US open, of which he won all of his five titles there in a row from 2004-2008. It is almost beyond belief that at his age and nine years later, Federer is playing close to his best once again. If Roger can produce the tennis he has been so far this year, it is his title to lose. And you would be a brave person to doubt him.



    Rafael Nadal (Seed #1)
    The resurgence of Rafael Nadal in 2017 almost gets lost in the glory of Federer, but it has been an equally extrodinary season for the clay-court genius. In similar vein to Roger, Nadal struggled with injuries throughout 2014 and 2015. Having not made the finals of a grand-slam since Roland Garros of 2015, Rafa entered 2017 with differing expectations of the tennis public. However, Nadal has denied expectations, reaching the final of the Australian Open before winning his 10th Roland Garros title.

    Rafa has had a far from perfect US summer so far by his standards. He lost to Denis Shapovalov at the Rogers Cup in a tight three-setter, before succumbing to Nick Kyrgios in the quarter-final of the Cincinnati Masters.

    Despite this, Rafa looks in great shape to go deep into the second week of Flushing Meadows. Having recently reclaimed the world no.1 ranking, and benefiting from the withdrawals of fellow contenders, Nadal should be full of confidence as he chases his third US open title.


    Alexander Zverev (Seed #4)
    It is unlikely Sascha Zverev will get a better chance to breakthrough for his first slam for a long, long while. The 20-year-old German prodigy is a star emerging before our eyes. Having recently broken into the top 10, Zverev has not yet reached the finals stage of a grand slam, despite having a hugely successful 2017 where he has claimed two masters 1000 titles.

    Zverev began his US summer with the Washington 500 event, where he was in stunning form, defeating Kei Nishikori and Kevin Anderson in straight sets to claim the title. Sascha continued this form into the Canadian 1000 event, where he defeated Nick Kyrgios, Kevin Anderson and Roger Federer all in straight sets to win his second ATP 1000 title. At the Cincinnati Masters, Zverev was understandably tired, losing in the second round.

    On the back of an outstanding US summer to date, along with the blessing of an open draw, Zverev is expected to be a serious contender for this year’s title and he will give himself every chance to win his first slam.




    Grigor Dimitrov (Seed #7)
    In a similar vein to Zverev, Dimitrov will not be the fourth favourite to win a grand slam for a long time following this event. The 26-year-old Bulgarian has been ranked in the top 20 for long periods of time, producing consistently good results on the ATP tour. Dimitrov possesses excellent shot-making and is blessed with suburb athleticism. When all of this comes together, Dimitrov is a very dangerous player, as he showed recently with his first Masters 1000 title and a return to the top 10 rankings.

    Dimitrov began his US open preparation at the Citi Open in Washington, where he surprisingly lost to Daniil Medvedev in the third round straight sets. At the Rogers Cup, Dimitrov once again succumbed in the third round to Robin Haase. Dimitrov was able to put these results behind him in brilliant fashion, as he claimed the Cincinnati Masters 1000 title, not losing a single set along the way.

    There is a lot at stake for Dimitrov over the next two weeks. He has been around the tour for a long time and will understand the fantastic opportunity presented to him in this tournament. Despite having previously not reached the finals stage of the US open, the form of Dimitrov suggests that he can push deep into the second week and challenge for the title.


    Marin Cilic (Seed #5)
    Cilic cannot be underestimated as one of the favourite for the title. At 28 years of age, the Croatian has taken a serious liking to Flushing Meadows in recent years, having won the title there in 2014 and making the semi-final in 2015. Cilic showed impressive form on the grass, reaching the final at Wimbledon, whilst also reaching his first quarter-final appearance at Roland Garros.

    With such impressive form not only this year but in his previous US open campaigns, an injury cloud is the issue surrounding Cilic this week. Cilic has not played a match since Wimbledon, withdrawing from the Rogers Cup citing an adductor injury.

    It remains to be seen whether Cilic has fully recovered from this injury, or how much this injury will limit his game. However, if the big serving, hard hitting Croatian can demonstrate full fitness over the two weeks, he will be an extremely dangerous opponent and has all the tools to contend for the championship.




    Nick Kyrgios (Seed #14)
    Kyrgios will once again fly the flag for Australia as he endeavors to win the first mens grand slam for the country since Lleyton Hewitt in 2002. Predicting Kyrgios’ fate in a tennis tournament is no simple task, with the mental aspect of his game being a significant factor in his success. Nonetheless, Kyrgios has the game to match anyone on the tour, and has a huge opportunity to reach his first finals appearance at a slam since the Australian Open in 2015.

    Kyrgios began his US summer at the Washington open, where he retired in the second round against Tennys Sandgren. This was hugely concerning in his preparation for the US open; however, Kyrgios was able to turn his form around. Losing in the third round in the Rogers cup to Alexander Zverev, Kyrgios carried some of this momentum into Cincinnati, where he produced some magnificent tennis, overcoming Nadal en-route to the final before losing to Dimitrov in straight sets.

    Above all, and perhaps most importantly, Kyrgios appears to be in a positive frame of mind, and seems to be enjoying himself on the court. If he can keep it together over the two weeks and dictate points with his booming serve, Kyrgios will be a very tough opponent and one that is capable of producing wins on the big stage.


    Dominic Thiem (Seed #6)
    Another of the Next Gen players, Thiem is another of the top contenders for the tournament. The 23-year-old Austrian has had another very solid season, reaching his first masters 1000 final. With his trademark one-handed backhand, Thiem has a great all-round game capable of causing many problems for his opponents.

    In the lead-up events, Thiem started at the Citi open, losing to Kevin Anderson at the round of 16. Thiem then lost to Diego Schwartzman at the Rogers cup. In a more promising result, Thiem reached the quarter-final at Cincinnati before losing to David Ferrer in straight sets, ending a reasonable but unspectacular preparation for the US open.

    Having reached the fourth round twice previously at the US open, the last grand slam of the season provides Thiem with a fantastic opportunity to reach his first quarter-final at Flushing Meadows. He has powerful groundstrokes off both wings and is a very consistent performer. Expect Thiem to feature in the finals stage in this tournament.
