    I was wondering if anyone was gonna start a thread about this. I would have, but tired of creating threads that go nowhere.

    The only sports threads that get attention are "Hottest (insert sport here) player"

    ha ha ha ohioguy, i total agree. i have not been to the us open but i would love to go. i think next year i am going to go even if i have to go by myself. i have buddies that live up there so i really do not have any excuse. not to mention, i am on 5 hours away. does anybody else get frustrated watching john isner play? i mean the dude has so much potential. he really frustrates me watching him play.

    Who's idea was it to play pop music (or any music) during some of the matches? I dunno about that. Had to mute the TV after 5 minutes of Call Me Maybe during Ferrer's match this morning.

    I've been busy, so I haven't been able to watch too much of the tournament, but I was thinking the exact same thing this afternoon.

    I was on site yesterday and got to see Jack Sock, Andy Murray, Angelique Kerber, and Thomas Berdych, my favorite. A grounds pass is $65 and lets you have access to all courts except Arthur Ashe.

    I am watching Maria Sharapova right now (rain delay) and she's down 2-0 in the final set. I highly recommend all RJ-ers to purchase Sugarpova, Maria Sharapova's line of premium candy.

    I keep saying every year that I will go, but it always coincides with school.. Man I should commit to it just once! So long and farewell Andy Roddick. Lets see you take it again!

    I wanted Venus to pull through the other night, I feel so bad for her with this autoimmune illness.

    We used to go every year on Labor Day Monday, but havent made it back in three years. Last saw Martina playing her final doubles match with one of the Brayn brothers. Definitely one of the best bargains in sports.

    I'm finding the TV coverage of this tournament impossible to watch. It's always long ads or the commentators in the outside studio chatting or just pieces of games and you can never sink your teeth into a game because they move onto another match. Its so annoying.
    I'm just waiting for the quarter final stages so it will be easier to watch.

    What if it were Ferrer or Hewitt singing the song to you?

    For the men's game, there's no question it would be either Federer, Djokovic or Murray. The question, of course, is if Murray would finally fulfill all expectations and win his first major. I have my predictions, but I'm not gonna jinx it by stating it out loud. Other intriguing players I think would be worth keeping track of are del Potro, Tipsarevic, Gasquet and Kohlschreiber. Fish may also be in the mix due to the crowd factor.

    I think there could very well be a different women's champion judging by how the last seven Grand Slams went, though Azarenka, Serena, Sharapova and Stosur all look solid, but Radwanska and Kerber could certainly make a few splashes.

    What's definitely memorable about this US Open, other than the gaping abyss that is the absence of Nadal, is the retirement of two tennis stars that have been shining on the court for so long. I'm sure many wish Clijsters was able to last longer in the tournament, and when Roddick's journey ends, that sentiment will be extended to him too. They will certainly be missed. Best wishes to both of them.

    rooting for Milos Raonic to make it through this round even though he's playing Murray!

    Raonic didn't look like he was at his best when playing Murray. Oh well, Murray will still fall to Federer in the Semi's, I believe.

    Definitely rooting for my man Novak Djokovic to win this year's U.S. Open! Go Srbija! icon_biggrin.gif

    YA Raonic didn't look as great as his last couple rounds, he still served great though!
    No way Murray is NOT losing to Federer!! It won't happen again

    It won't happen now because Federer isn't in it!

    Now that it'll be Berdych v. Murray in the Semis, I think Murray will make another U.S. Open Final but still lose to the Djoker.

    I'm going with Sharapova, she seems possessed when she's on her rallies.

    Serena will win.
    Hope Murray wins.

    Still not happy that Federer lost in the QF, but I truly believe that Roddick's loss and official retirement hit him harder than most people think. Roger is a very sensitive guy and he basically grew up with Andy on the tour.
