Who Ever Wins US OPEN will have the best 2012 as a tennis player.

If Djkovic or Federal wins, they will have 2 grand slams, thus double than anyone out there. If Murray wins, he will be the one with a gold metal and a grand slam (highly unlikely. ) If Tsonga or anyone else wins, they will have the greatest year they've ever had.

So...technically not. Only if Roger, Novak, or Andy win...will they have the "best 2012 as a tennis player." If anyone else wins it...they will have their best personal season (unless, of course, it's Roddick).

Why single out Roddick?

Because going by your rationale, it wouldn't be his greatest ever season. He's already won the US Open, so if he won it again, he would tie his greatest single season ever.

On the women's side, it's looking like Serena Williams vs. Victoria Azarenka for the title. Hope Vika wins, but I doubt it.
Going into the 3rd round I still have 6 favorites left: Dominika Cibulkova, Maria Kirilenko, Aga Radwanska, Ana Ivanovic, Victoria Azarenka and Angelique Kerber. Hopefully 1 of those 6 can win it, or at least hang around till the middle/end of next week at the latest.

Andy Roddick announced he will be retiring after the tournament. Had a good career. Definitely dropped off lately. But he will be missed.

I've always thought Roddick was younger than Federer, but he's not, they're the same age -- amazing that Federer can stay on the top tier this long.

I jost love watching Tracy Austin. I remember when she beat Martina 1-6, 7-6, 7-6 in the 1981 Open. The first set Martina blew her off the court, but Tracy didn't give up and began to groove on Martina's serve, and then came back to win.

I think it was the most courageous thing I have ever seen in sports.

Tennis is the only sports I watch, but I can't stand the few howler monkeys, mostly women, that have this screech or howl every single time the hit the ball. I typically mute the TV or turn it way down, not sure I could sit through 2 or 3 sets in the arena without going crazy.
