Fedex wins again. Looked like he was 10 years younger.

Venus lost her match, looked like her mind and heart was somewhere else.

Congrats to Muguruza and Federer !

Federer Vs Cilic was not the 5 set thriller I was hoping for but certainly a very historic tennis days with Federer winning his 19th slam title and I don't think his record will be broken anytime soon.

I think his record will stand for a long time. He won his first Wimbledon in 2003 at the age of 21. Some one needs to have a game like him and has to start winning slams from 18/19 years in order to break his record.

Would the injury (blisters I think) to Cilic hampered his game?

Cilic was honest and admitted that it was not so much the pain of the blisters but the frustration of not winning and for Cilic it was a shattering of a once in a lifetime dream on the big stage. Cilic just hit a Federer wall of near perfect tennis.


An excellent article in today's Toronto Star newspaper by Tennis fan and great writer Rosie DiManno that you will enjoy:

Lovely match at the US opens - Federer Vs Del Potro.
Del Potro serving to get the match in his pocket and Federer fighting - 30-30 in the deciding game of the fourth set.

ETA - Del Potro gets one over the Legend. In semifinals against (?)Nadal.

Trivia - Probably the first time that you have an all american lineup for the semifinals at the US open. The women seem to be all charged up there - do we expect a political statement at the trophy ceremony??

And (for the final time today, I promise!) - Coco has to play in two semifinals, both scheduled for the 8th of September - will the dynamite power suffice for both the matches?

Sloane Stephens defeats Venus William, crashing her dreams of the being the oldest person to win the US Open, to face Madison Keys in the finals.

Sania is playing against her former partner Martina for a place in the finals in the women's doubles.

Nadal is playing like a machine, breaking down del Potro systematically..
Would be surprised if he misses out on the title.

Sloane Stephens decimated Madison Keys 6-3, 6-0 to win the US open.

Hoping that Nadal also decimates Anderson today.

Hingis could win the Women's Doubles to add to the Mixed Double's title.

Nadal and Roger Federer have shared this year's Grand Slam titles: remarkable given that, last October, when Federer visited Nadal's academy in Mallorca, they were only fit enough to play soft tennis with the juniors.

Tennis is an amazing game and so are these two playing legends. Nadal and Federer share 35 grand slams amongst them and I am sure they would increase the tally before the hang up their racquets.
