US Open 2012 – Draw and Match Foresights
Less than 4 days remaining until the historic 2012 Tennis US Open, and it seems like Novak Djokovic will be able to advance onto the finals quite easier than expected, because Roger Federer will have to face Andy Murray in the semi-finals if they both advance steadily though their matches. Though, there is a possibility that Djokovic might get defeated unexpectedly by some opponents, just like when Nadal was defeated on the second round of Wimbledon this year to a unknown player named Lukas Rosol. I’m not making fun of Rosol in any way, but I mean, nobody knew who he was until he defeated Nadal. Djokovic’s first opponent is Pablo Lorenzi, who is currently ranked 69th place in the world rankings. He is a 30 year old Italian tennis player, which I think will not be much of a threat. Djokovic’s next opponent will be either Rogerio Dutra Silva or a qualifier that is not yet announced. Rogerio is a Brazilian tennis player who is 28 years old and is ranked 112th in the world rankings. Just around where Lukas Rosol was when he defeated Nadal.
Though, Djokovic is one of those hardheaded strong ones that’s very hard to defeat, and his strokes are very solid and deep, so it’s unlikely for his shots to be too short, allowing the opponent to hit a winner. Nadal hit many short balls when he faced Rosol, which may be one of the reasons why he lost. With this draw, I think that Djokovic will be able to go to the finals of this years US Open.
As for Federer, I think Federer will face some difficulty until getting to the semi-finals. If Murray advances to the semis, he will most likely face Federer again. Now, I know Federer won against Murray in the Wimbledon finals this year and won, but lost in the Olympics final in straight sets. Though, as I said before, there is a possibility that Federer lost on purpose against Murray on the Olympics, so there as long as Federer plays his best, I think he’ll be able to advance onto the finals.
