It is easy to regard Johanna Konta's impressive rise from nervous underachiever to genuine contender for major honours as the result of a dry, programmed preparation, as is often reflected in her language. The word "process" has become an almost parodic feature of her lexicon.
If there is an evident dividend from the Rio Olympic Games, it shines on the faces of those who chose to go and they might yet profit further from the most uplifting experience of their careers at this US Open.
If Novak Djokovic is personally settled and near to full fitness, he will still be favourite to win the 2016 US Open, despite the impressive rise of Andy Murray this summer - as the absent Roger Federer has observed.
Andy Murray is right to point out that doubts over Novak Djokovic's fitness - leaving aside the Serb's revelation that his private life has been in turmoil - will have no effect on his own progress through the draw at this US Open.
Jonathan Ganshorn's favourite river spot yields a fine kettle of fish. It's served up a couple of catches for his wall, too - including a second record-breaking fish pulled out of the South Saskatchewan River last month.

Robert McCracken and his Great Britain boxers leave Brazil with gold, silver and bronze medals, a few regrets and worries about the integrity of the tournament, but with ambitions to do even better at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Joe Joyce threw everything he had at the Frenchman who had slandered him as "a robot" who was scared of him, Tony Yoka, but it was not enough to win him gold in the last boxing event of the Olympics, the super-heavyweight final.
Joe Joyce lit up Pavilion Six on Friday afternoon with three rounds of controlled malevolence against the smart Kazak Ivan Dychko to guarantee silver and put him in with an excellent chance for gold on Sunday - as well as revenge against his old French rival, Tony Yoka.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. David Pogue)
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
