When Rafa lost that first set tie-break to Philipp Kohlschreiber, I wondered what odds you could have got on neither Federer nor Nadal making the US Open quarter-final. Rafa came storming back to win in four, as we suspected he would. But the more I see of this US Open, the more I’m convinced that Novak Djokovic will take the title. Famous last words? Maybe. Murray and Nadal still have every chance. And we can look forward to a wonderful climax to the most vibrant and chaotic tennis tournament of them all.
