Novak Djokovic in repeat mode (U.S. Open Men's Preview)


What a year we've seen in the Slams, huh? The re-emergence of Roger Federer as a winner, Rafael Nadal dominating the French, Andy Murray coming close and it starting off with Novak Djokovic defending his Australian Open title.

I'm picking him to defend his U.S. Open win, too.

I know it's been the year of the Fed, but I just like Djokovic's draw too much, and he's not playing too shabby, either.

Anyway, here's the one-of-a-kind, exclusive, only-seen-at-TTA?, from-the-round-of-16 U.S. Open preview:
