It’s the last Grand Slam of the year, so all the big players will be keen to finish on a high. However, for the qualifiers, they will be keen to make an impression and try to go deep into the competition.

The competition is expected to be closer to Flushing Meadows. It will be interesting to see how the likes of Nadal and Djokovic fare at the US Open. Both have been impressive in three Grand Slams this season, with Nadal winning twice and Djokovic once.

However, luck also plays an important role. It is at this juncture, where the painting comes into play. The top players are only expected to run into bigger opponents in the latter stages of the competition.
