Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic to win US Open? Greg Rusedski has his say

US Open
Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic with 2018 Grand Slam trophies

Who from the “Big Three” of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will lift the US Open trophy? Greg Rusedski gives his prediction.

The final Grand Slam of the year kicks off at Flushing Meadows on Monday August 27 and many believe that one of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic will walk away with the title.

And they have good reason to back any of the trio as Federer won the Australian Open, Nadal took the French Open and Djokovic claimed Wimbledon.

Former US Open runner-up Rusedski delivers his verdict.

“I think it’s the big threes this year,” he told Press Association Sport.

“You have a big race at the moment for who’s going to end up with the most majors in their career. Federer has 20, Nadal’s got 17, Djokovic has 13, so they all desperately want to win two majors this year.

“The guy with the most majors in the year, even if they’re not world number one, feels like the best player on the planet.

“Rafa’s got his form right now, Federer played well in Cincinnati and the crowd really gets behind him, but for some reason I feel like Djokovic has turned a corner, historically on the hard courts he’s right. I can’t see anybody outside of the big three.”
