I'll be happy with a Quarter Final showing.. anything after that is a bonus.
Good thinking. He has not lost ground on previous years in the last month and to do same at USO would be a good boost to his points tally. After he has no points to defend so that period points won will be all gain for his ranking and his Race position.
Playing as well as he is (at times) he should make London from doing four tournaments after the US Open. A mix of quarters and semis would be good! He needs to do three events on the Asian swing as I have said previously for some security just in case he has a bad day at one. Everyone from ranked 4 down on the Race list can be overtaken by Andy so this is not the time for any negative thoughts.
