The battle is turning towards an uncertainty where it could be anyone’s crown for the last grand slam of 2016.
With 23.49cr as the prize money for men’s singles’ winner there is lot more at stake than just money. With consecutive Olympic Champion and Wimbledon title winner, Andy Murray is looking for his career’s best in this edition of US Open. As many top players are struggling with injuries the battle in men’s singles has turned in a way where Murray is winning alone in the race. While Djokovic has admitted that he is not 100% fit one can expect his early exit from the tournament.
The fab four of Nadal, Murray, Djokovic and Federer have led the pack for past two decades giving no chance to others to come in front.
