We. I'm Brian -- the US open is the final Grand Slam tournament of the year for preview of the men's -- pleased to be till about foxwoods dot com senior tennis writer Richard -- Richard Novak Djokovic is having an outstanding year what it would coming up a loss in Cincinnati because of the shoulder injury when He gets -- New York City. If these fully healthy do you think the world number one will continue his amazing play at -- -- I think without any doubt if that's so that they can -- -- troubled and that Novak Djokovic will be shooting for his third Grand Slam title of the yet. And of course He has had this extraordinary. A little too defeats and the -- run against Andy -- in the final in Cincinnati what is. Definitely has an asterisk against it because He wasn't fit. Important I think just showed us that he'd CDC suffers in the -- Less than He used to but He would still affects him and He really didn't have much left to offer. Physically of that final against Andy Murray. Now that's going to be. Big question mark against him that -- there is still a problem then Djokovic who's gonna have. Real struggle to win the title. As you know Richard Roth on the dollars and defending champion but he's an inconsistent since Wimbledon Roger Federer not shining either this summer so. What's the outlook at flushing meadows. The funny thing is that nobody would never said that when He lost 636 through the Kevin Anderson in Montreal the week before Cincinnati is Cincinnati. Andy Murray out that helped full. Return -- the open probably in the best shape both physically and psychologically. We got what I would you say hey can you say he's really being sent back by these consecutive defeats at the hands of good Djokovic. He's not quite there no doubt that He was when He won the open last year. Roger Federer it's still a dangerous He could still win the title no question he's got the talent. But he's not as consistent as He used to be you know losing side before getting to Grand Slam finals which is something He never used to do. And the Ferrer Andy Murray who was beaten all of them that -- is not necessarily in the finals of Grand Slam that matter he's been through finals most of all. That Murray can go another thing that he's such. He's one of Cincinnati even know Djokovic obviously wasn't his best is similar wins -- win. And Murray will go in thinking maybe this is probably my chance to win and it could be. Let's dig deeper into the draw Marty fish won the US open series do you think the American going to be a factor and we took the open and the -- Would you be watching beyond the top three seats. Well it's great to have Mardy Fish ranked in the top ten -- number eight seed that's a huge credit to him. Those sort of wasting somebody's -- of his career but he's on that diet he's similarities process he's playing the best finish of his career. So I would really expect Roddick fish to be in the final week of may be the semifinals maybe the final who knows. It's so bad somebody if if He can really produce reform he's produced. Several moments so yeah he's been playing talked about tennis. So watch him obviously Andy Roddick used to be the top the hope for America. He's not getting into the tournament that it would be 21. Proceed with his way down put him. And -- -- well I am I'd be surprised if He made a -- run but you can never count him out. Of the other players I would look at says there won't -- has been playing. More consistently than He -- than He has been Robin Soderling and number six seed. Not really shown the best form promised that it should that is started to look like the Wimbledon finalist that He brought to us here. But I think that you look for some -- Amanda watched. He had a great -- time on the grass at Wimbledon. He's good continued to look good He runs the top players the number eleven seed from France I think Tsonga wouldn't someone to watch and the great not knowing the in front Martin del potro beat Federer two years ago when the tightrope. Then had wrist surgery He never quite got back but boy does He have the game if He can turn it on because a lot of damage of these lowly ranked. At certain number eighteen. I Richard thanks so much for the insides don't forget foxwoods dot com that you covered for all your tennis eight. I'm Brian Webber will see you next time.
