Have been thinking recently about actually trying a digital detox and giving up some social media presence. To say this blog is in its death throes may seem a little dramatic, but I find my motivation dwindling outside of the majors.
Here we are then, my first post since Wimbledon as we suddenly find ourselves in the Big Apple for the final slam of 2019.
Amazon will again be providing me with the spoils, it certainly delivered last year in its debut at a fully fledged exclusive UK broadcaster.
Who is looking good, who may struggle, and what are my top picks on a packed Day 1?

Shock! I’m going with one of my safest predictions here and the man who had recently stepped up one more on the biggest stages.
Finalist – Nadal
Good tournament for: Zverev, Thiem, Monfils
Bad tournament for: Federer, Nishikori, Wawrinka

Heart ruling the head here, so sue me!

Bad tournament for – Williams, Osaka, Svitolina
