The Breakdown

Murray, the No. 3 seed at the US Open, enters the tournament playing extremely well. He won the Emirates Airline US Open Series title with strong play in Montreal and Cincinnati, reeling off five straight wins and beating Novak Djokovic for the title in Montreal. In Cincinnati, Murray advanced to the semifinals before falling to Roger Federer. Murray is looking to return to his 2012 US Open form, when he won the first Grand Slam title.

Kyrgios might be the most-talked about player on the ATP World Tour, both for his off-the-court antics and on-court potential. Everyone agrees he can be a Top 5 player, and he has already enjoyed Grand Slam success. At Wimbledon last year, Kyrgios introduced himself to the tennis world by knocking off Frenchman Richard Gasquet and the No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal. At the Australian Open earlier this year, Kyrgios made his second Grand Slam quarterfinal, losing to Murray in the round of 8.

Could this year's US Open be the Grand Slam breakthrough we've been waiting for from Kyrgios? Murray is clearly the more consistent player and owns their brief head-to-head tenure. But night matches at Arthur Ashe Stadium can produce unexpected results, and what New York crowd has ever resisted an underdog who entertains them?
