Novak Djokovic will head to New York and the US Open full of hope that he can pick up his third major of the year and continue his unbelievable run of form in 2011.
The Serb has lost only twice so far this year and having already held the winner’s trophy aloft at Wimbledon and the Australian Open in 2011 to secure the number one spot in the men’s rankings, he is the hot betting favourite to reign victorious at Flushing Meadows.

The man he displaced as number one, Rafael Nadal, may have something to say about that as he goes about defending the title he won in New York last year, but the Spaniards form and fitness has caused concerns of late.
Nadal has been dumped out of the two recent Masters events in the early stages and has been unable to carry his excellent form on clay over to the hard court season. He remains the second favourite for the title but given his current form it may be better to steer clear at the moment, even though his presence in the latter stages is all but assured.
Djokovic and Nadal along with Roger Federer and Andy Murray all made the semi-finals at the French Open and all look a level above the rest of the pack currently. Although Federer fell at the quarters at Wimbledon there is a good chance that the big four will all make the semi’s, and at 5-1 that is an outcome well worth backing.
Andy Murray will once more go in search of picking up his first ever Grand Slam title, and having inflicted only Djokovic’s second defeat at the Cincinnati Masters last week, the Scot will be confident of breaking his duck.
Murray finished as runner up to Federer in 2008 and is a good bet to make the final once more given the lack of form shown by both Nadal and Federer currently, and at 7/2 it may well be worth your time backing the 24-year-old.
