Djokovic revels in his defeat of Federer

"Djokovic has won his last 13 in a row at Grand Slams, nine in a row in finals and 11 in a row against left-handers."

Betting is all about opinions and, while one BB previewer fancies Nadal to cause a shock, Ben Caudell can't see past another Djokovic win. Here's why...

*Five Reasons to Back Novak Djokovic to defeat Rafael Nadal @ [1.66]

• Novak Djokovic the world number one, will put every ounce of effort into his last Grand Slam match of the year to secure a place in the record books after so far being crowned French Open and Wimbledon champion. Although Rafa holds a 16-12 head-to-head series lead over Djokovic, the important fact here is that Novak has won all five matches they have played within the past 12 months.
• Not surprisingly, seeing as Djokovic has lost only two matches all year, (Federer at the French Open and Murray in Cincinnati) the 24-year-old holds significantly superior stats coming into tonight's match. The Davis Cup winner has won his last 13 in a row at Grand Slams, nine in a row in finals and 11 in a row against left-handers.
• Novak has won twice as many tournaments this year - ten in all - five of which were played on hard-courts (Montreal, Miami, Indian Wells, Dubai and the Australian Open) the Serbian has a decent record at Flushing Meadows having reached the final in 2007 and 2010 and the semi-finals in 09 and 08.
• Djokovic holds a superior ranking, surface rating and match rating.
• The Serbian will be the more confident of the two as they walk out on the Arthur Ashe court at 21:00 UK Time, having a 7-2 advantage over Rafa on this surface as well as five consecutive wins in finals against the left-hander.
