As the final Grand Slam of the year approaches, the old guard seems to have a stranglehold on men's tennis. With the first three slams of the year going to Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, it seems like the rest of the players have a herculean task ahead of them if they want to break the older generation's monopoly on the sport.The U.S. Open is one of his most consistent events and he seems to be peaking just in time for it; however, he is not the Djokovic of a few years ago and is still susceptible to an upset, as became apparent in Montreal.Despite losing an epic battle to Djokovic at Wimbledon, Nadal played excellent tennis at his least favorite slam and probably came within a hair's breadth of adding another slam to his ever-growing collection.There seems to be a common theme: if you can take the match out of Federer's hands, you can beat him. However, not many men can do that, and the only others that can stand toe-to-toe with him are Djokovic and Nadal.
