Roger Federer is through to the final of the Olympic tennis tournament, but he’ll soon be setting his sights on success at the upcoming US Open. The Swiss legend has enjoyed a tremendous season that has seen him win the Wimbledon title and overtake Pete Sampras as the player to have spent the most weeks at No. 1 in the world rankings.

Federer had been two sets up in the US Open semi-finals last year against Novak Djokovic before the Serb produced one of the most impressive comebacks of the season. Djokovic had looked pretty much unbeatable all season, and even Federer couldn’t resist the threat of the former world No. 1 on the hard courts at Flushing Meadows.

This time around things could be very different. Federer has a Wimbedon title to his name this year and the chance to compete for a gold medal at the Olympics. Djokovic is still playing well, but he doesn’t quite appear to be the tennis machine that he was in 2011. Of course, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will also be in the draw. Even so, Federer appears to have a reasonable chance of clinching his second slam of the season.
