The third set between Tsonga and Djok was a great set. I don't think Murray will get further than where he already is. I am going to predict a Nadal win.

I fear Federer won't win anymore majors, his age plus he's got to fight Nadal and Djok back. :/
I think he'll remain in the top ten for a bit but I think that's as far as it'll go in his career at the moment.

Looks like Djokovic has stepped up to live his dream. He handled Nadal fairly masterfully. I am happy for him and wish him continued success.

I'm predicting a Djoker win for the US Open however much I wish it wasn't. Fed leveled up a bit from the how he had been playing earlier in the year, I hope he can rise to the occasion in the Australian Open next year.

The game between Murray and Nadal felt like they were fighting it in knee high mud.

Also great to see Serena crush the "No. 1 seed".

Yes, indeed, Wozniacki is silly as #1.

Liking Sam Stosur a lot. She is trim, fit, hits the ball well. Been around a long time from what I read. Hope she plays a while yet. I enjoy her game. Happy she won today - a very well deserved win. In this case, the better player, and person, did come out on top.

yeah, that was really ridiculous and uncalled for the way S Williams handled herself out there.

to berate the official and then tell her, while she's talking to her, to stop looking at her (what else would the official do) and calling her ugly on the inside and that she's just a hater on a changeover was insane.

and the sophisticated, cultured, New York crowd yelling and making noise when Stosur was at the serving line and even a few idots yelling right before she was about to hit a volley during rallies was completely uncalled for.

Andy Murray moves to #3, Federer drops to #4.
