You lose a lot when you lose Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal from a major championship. Most of all, you lose major titles: 39 of them, to be exact. That leaves Novak Djokovic with 17, Andy Murray with three, Marin Cilic with one, and the other 125 players in the US Open men’s draw with a combined total of zero.
Does this make Djokovic the overwhelming favorite to get No. 18? Or does it make this event our best chance of seeing someone new hold up the winner’s trophy?
