Rafa and Na Li won't play because of their injuries. Neither will DelPo, of course. :(

 

So it's going to be a great chance for Roger and Serena to win the 18th slam!

 

 

Federer is already showing off... :D

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

Wish Rafa was playing.

 

It'll be Federer beating out Djo in the finals.

Flying to NY tonight, will be going on Saturday. Unfortunately I don't think our tickets are for Arthur Ashe though, but should still be fun.

I have been watching
Then it switched over to espn 2
And espn didn't work
Was on phone for an hour with bright house. Such rubbish..

Don't get bright house.
Didn't come on. And like 1/3 of our channels don't work

My Canadians are doing well, Milos and Genie off to the sweet sixteen! They looked pretty shaky today though, they're going to have to step it up.

Dimitrov and Monfils playing right now: 5-7 6-6 so far.

The winner will play against Federer or Bautista Agut.

 

The Wawrinka-Nishikori quarter-final will be very interesting as well.

Monfils beat Dimitrov 5-7 6-7 5-7. Monfils has yet to lose a set at this year's Open!

Federer and Kobe. The two greatest athletes in today's age that have kept their career incredibly long and dominant.

Crazy match going on between Djokovic and Murray. Everyone should tune in for the end of this one.

Djokovic-Murray and Wawrinka-Nishikori were really great matches to watch!

It's going to be a tough match for Federer against Monfils today.

And I believe Nishikori has a shot at taking down Djokovic in the semi.

 

Meanwhile, Serena and Wozniacki should meet up in the Women's Final.

 

 

I really think Roger and Serena are going to win the 18th Slam at this year's Open!

Federer needs another BIG comeback. Cilic won the first two sets 6-3 6-4.

 

Federer is up 2-1 in the third.

Two first-timers in the US Open Final: Nishikori vs. Cilic :yikes:

 

I feel sorry for Roger... With Rafa out, this could have been his 18th Slam. But both Nishikori and Cilic deserved to get this far in the Championship.

Nadal wouldn't have dropped a set against any of these guys that Djo and Federer struggled with
