    I'd say he could win either of Montreal and Cincinnati and the US Open. I don't think he'll win the lot.
    It would be very interesting if he did; it would mean that the Big 4 all together would have covered the entire season with streaks.
    Djokovic's 2011 43-match streak was from the Davis Cup/AO throughout the 1st half of the season until the French Open, where he lost to Federer.
    Nadal's 2008 30-something streak was from Monte Carlo up till Cincinnati, where he lost to Djokovic
    Federer's 2006/2007 41-match streak was from the US Open 2006 up till Indian Wells 2007, where he suffered a shock loss against Canas

    So the only small stretch that's not been covered is between the Rogers Cup and just after the US Open

    Guess what I found Nadal apparently let Murray win a practice 6-0 set against him on clay to make murray happy. Sick Guy. "“Practice is important for yourself. In practice you want to be kind of selfish, work on your own things,” Murray said. “Whether it has a bearing on the result of a practice set…I mean I beat Rafa in a practice set in Madrid 6-0 on the clay. If (he laughed) I played him in a match, there’s absolutely no chance that’s going to happen. It doesn’t have that much relevance so long as you get out of it what you need to.”

    I couldn't believe my eyes when I read them! In many ways, this society is the best tennis discussion forum I or anyone could ask for - everyone's friendly, intelligent and respects each others' views. That is not the case on TT, menstennisforums, or Bleacher Report, or even that one, where several teenage, pre-pubescent trolls lurk, waiting to pounce on the words of players (even more so than the media!)

    I think Murray's taken a set off Nadal on clay (in 2011, not sure where), but Nadal hates being bagelled on clay in an actual match. We could see this year, against Djokovic and Gulbis, how desperately he tried to avoid it

    Aye, it was in Monte Carlo. 47 More long minutes until we get to see Rafa. God am so happy.

    Nadal's match is only in it's 7th game and the match has already been going on for 40 minutes. Federer can finish a match in this time.

    Typical Nadal wasting time between points. It irritates me that he often breaks the time violations. The umpires should be far harsher on it, it allows time for recovery. Just like AO 2012, 6 hours or so, quite a lot of that was excess waiting and time wasting..

    Am i the only one who thinks Murray will fail to defend his US Open?

    His win at Wimbledon was great (can't fault him in the final) but he played nowhere near the standard of the Djokovic vs Del Potro semi-final.and Djokovic has won their last 3 hard court matches since the US Open. While he has a great shot at the final and Federer may not have bounced back Del Potro as inconsistent as he is had a forehand in Washington that was (and i'm serious when i say this) unreturnable.

    Na they should go back to 40 second break 20seconds seems far too short.

    Murray vs Delpo US open would be a great match if it happens am expecting the victor in 5 sets.

    So Glad that Rafa got through. Him and Ferrer are two of my favourite players on tour due to their modesty. I would love a Rafa/Del potro or Rafa/ Murray final. Especially the latter, they haven't played in 2 years. It'll be interesting to see how they both do, I'd give the edge to Nadal.
