    i wasn't able to watch the match. so it seems nole was playing badly?

    that's good. i was worried that roger was just too amazing :hurr

    anyway, great that roger win. it looks like he's gonna be the undisputed favorite coming into the us open. but i still hope nole can pull himself together and retain his title there. however, with no nadal, it might be a bit less exciting.

    I missed some of it because I was sleeping. Such an early time for a final which sure didn't help Novak.
    He was all over the place in the first set but definitely had his chances in the second. He went against his strengths though and played some silly shots.
    He is still the favourite to me for the title. He didn't seem bothered that he lost ...saying he didn't expect to get this far lol and last year he retired in the final here .

    He's gonna need some practice under his belt to rid of the rust first though.

    Hard to believe Nadal is still at third despite being bad or injured lately. Murray has been good lately so I thought he'd jump up.
    Well he beat Djoko the last time they played. Djoko hasn't been the same.

    Good point. There was no way Djoker could duplicate what he did last year anyways, but I still like a healthy Fed or Rafa's chances to beat the Djoker more than I do Andy when it comes to the Grand Slams.

    Fed is the GOAT after all:hurr Nadal would probably win too. Djoko just had a cinderella season last year, I wonder if he can ever be that good again.

    Should be a classic between Murray and Federer either way.

    Serena stays fit, she could dominate the US Open in the womens draw.

    Healthy Serena should put the order back into women's tennis and destroy the field.

    Don't make me laugh.

    Here's hoping.

    Well if it has to be someone other than Fed. Djoko doesn't seem to be having a great time of it recently, maybe it just seems that way in comparison to last year. I really enjoy watching him though and I find him really likeable, way better than Murray.

    Here's hoping :tomato

    at first i was thinking this was the case, but if after the usopen he still loses to either fed or murray, it's clear he's playing significantly below his level last year, and not just because he was insane that time that it looks like his level now is not so great.

    doesn't retract from either fed or murray if they beat him though but he needs to bounce the fuck back.

    not until the end of the usopen :pek

    at least Murray and Djoko aren't in the same part of the bracket. If Djoko wins the USO i'm guessing he'll be number 1 at the end of the year since Djoko grabbed just about 0 points last year after the USO while Fed has five titles to defend.

    Lol some of these first round matches are crazy.
    The level gap between players and all. Donald Young had so much potential but he looks terrible right now.

    ESPN seems to be hyping up Milos a lot hehe.

    Murray was horrible against Bogomolov, he better improve his game if he wants to win this major.

    Fantastic win for Robson to put out on of the greats of women's game and end Clijster's GS career. Hopefully she believes now she has the game to beat anyone on her day and push her up the rankings.

    get home to find out that Roddick is retiring, gonna miss his entertaining press conferences :lmao

    He had a heck of a career it was just unfortunate for him he played in the same era as the GOAT.

    Tomic and Harrison have been such disappointments this year.

    I wonder if US men's tennis will ever reach the top again.
