    Who do yall think will win?

    Saw Nadal's third round today. That man is smokin' the courts. I hope he wins! I thought his opponent was pretty hot, Viktor Troicki from Serbia.

    Props to the Andys (Roddick and Murray) for hanging in on their 3rd rounds, but I'm not that big a fan of them.

    I think on the women's side, whoever wins the Serena and Venus quarterfinal is gonna take the whole tournament.... hands down. They are both playing amazingly right now, loads better than any other woman in the tournament right now. And in between those two, I'm gonna have to pick Venus icon_smile.gif

    I'm a big fan of Wawrinka on the men's side. I was so irritated when TSN opted to show Serena and Nadal stomp all over their oponents than let us see the nailbiter Wawrinka was in. He's up against Murray in the 4th round, so I'm a little worried, though Murray hasn't been playing all that consistently this tournament.

    I so badly wanted to see Troicki take out Nadal. Mainly because Troicki is damn fine to look at, but I'm also just not a Nadal fan.

    Venus or Dementieva for the women....and I'm guessing a Fed vs. Nadal rematch for the men (although I'd rather see the Djoker or Roddick take another slam home).

    Today saw a couple of great matches, hope tomorrow does too!

    Thrilled to see Serena win. It was a pretty hard fought match. Venus 0 for 10 on set points or something crazy like that. NY crowds seem more quiet this year than previous, except for that idiot who interrupted Serena's serve. Maybe they'll get more into it when the Nadal/Fish match gets to about the 4am mark icon_eek.gif
