ANDY MURRAY is joint favourite to win the US Open after landing his second Grand Slam of his career at Wimbledon on Sunday.
At the moment you'd have to favour Murray to defend his trophy after he beat Djokovic in a five-set thriller at Flushing Meadows last year.
To defend his Wimbledon crown Murray is 2-1 with boylesports as is Djokovic. Surely it will be easier for Andy to win it again with no one telling him every two seconds: “No Brit has won Wimbledon for 77 years”.
Del Potro's an interesting one. He was so close to beating Djokovic in the semi-finals and the Argentine has a game made for grass. That 16-1 could be worth an each-way look depending on the draw – but of course we won't know that until closer to the start of the tournament.
