Federer and Djokovic Marches On

The favorites are still breezing through the draw, at least the top three players Djokovic, Federer and Nadal. Djokovic had far fewer problems than I thought with Fish, winning in three easy sets. Maybe Fish was tired but in that match it was pretty evident that he lacked something. Being fitter and slimmer he seems to play far more passively and against a player like Djokovic that doesn’t quite cut it. He would have needed to go for his shots a lot more to get the Djoker off balance. Djokovic is now playing Monfils in the quarter-finals who managed to dispose of his countryman Gasquet pretty handily. I like Djokovic’s chances in that match

Federer also had an easy time against Melzer and has yet to drop a set in this year’s US Open. But the next match will prove the first real test, as he is playing Soderling who beat him in the French Open and has proven a worthy test for anyone these days. Federer’s form will be hard to get by though and I think the Fed express is heading for another semi-final.

Today we have a Spanish day in New York with three Spaniards in action. First we have Robredo going up against Youzhny. The way Youzhny has been playing I think he will be the favorite in this match. He looks very solid and very inspired.

Then we have upset man Wavrinka against only remaining American Sam Querrey. I think Querrey will get enough support from the home crowd to overcome Wavrinka’s giant groundstrokes. The key is as always his serve, if it is on he is the favorite, if it is slightly off – he’ll lose.

Match of the day is the all Spanish affair between Verdasco and Ferrer. Verdasco leads the head to head with 6-4 and played an amazing match against Nalbandian. I think he will use his firepower and newfound confidence to defeat Ferrer.
