But with torrential rain lashing the Flushing Meadows site, the roof on the showpiece Arthur Ashe stadium was shut tight, creating a giant echo-chamber for the boisterous crowd of 24,000 beneath.

"My hope and my belief is that it's only going to get better from here because every day that goes by puts me further away from what happened in Montreal ".
Most importantly, Wenger seems to have lost the dressing room, this goes beyond tactics, set-up and players not being good enough. Can has been in impressive form so far this season.
