    I hate to see Roger lose, but new talant emerges in both men's and woman's tennis!!! Good Stuff.

    Anyone else see the finals??

    Yes, I did and WOW Del Potro with Guiellmo Villa in to watch the match. Both he and Roger were gracious with their speeches. And Kim played like she was on a mission and the Dane was also gracious. One the most excellent tournaments I have seen in along time.

    Well let's see how many more he wins before he's annointed the next best thing to slice bread.

    Didn't Roddick win one open as well? Need I say more...

    yea...what a interesting final. i was prediciting delpo and clijsters to win from the start...i should get into sports gambling!

    the men's final was entertaining tennis, cos it was more about focus/guts/mentality than it was about quality tennis. rog's first serve % was horrendous and his forehand went away. i was really surprised with how poorly roger played at times, but at the same time, i was happily surprised with how mentally tough delpo was. a rookie finalist like him should have caved multiple times. he didn't!

    also, if you read the post match conference, roger said he doesn't think delpo's forehand is one of the best. what do you think? i sort of agree. it's a rocket at times, but it's got a huge swing and weird form. apt to break down.

    It takes more than one major win I agree. I am still a huge Federer fan!

    I'm a Fed fan as well, but I'm glad he lost this time around.

    It would have been great if Andy had beaten him at Wimbledon as well.
