US open 2008 -2009
#1
AGAIN, dear tennis fans!
Our days came, 'cause it's again a GRAND SLAM TOURNAMENT!
The US Open 2008, the last GST of the year.
The leaders of the ATP have already played. Thus the three kings - Nadal, Djokovich and Federer passed the first round with no difficulties. Not a set was lost by them.
You can place here any of your opinions and comments. I'd be happy to discuss.

It's a pity Kuznetsova has lost her chance in US open. She was beat today by Srebotnik: 6-3 6-7 6-3. The tie break in the second set was won 7:1

yes Peter, you are right. Kuznetsova's elimination was a surprise, since it's only the first week.
Today's news: Nalbandian crashed out by Monfils:6-3 6-4 6-2
Nadal and Williams sisters keep their success alive

Serena qualified for the semifinals, by beating, guess whom? Venus herself! Yes, they had a hard game but Serena proved to be stronger than her elder sister!

I've been watching a very interesting game between Federer and Djokovich. It looks like Roger's powers returned to him and he won Djokovich not putting much efforts: 3:1 (6:3, 5:7, 7:5, 6:2)
Thus, we will witness, again, a grand final of the US open: Federer vs Murray!!!!
Forecasts?

Big surprise at the U.S. Open 2009, at the last Grand Slam tournament of the year. The second favorite in the competition, Andy Murray was eliminated, after he lost to Croatian Marin Cilic. Croat was imposed in 3 sets and eliminated the British, who after the tour U.S. Open will miss the second position in the world rankings. That on the grounds that Rafael Nadal is the 3rd in the world, qualified in the quarters. Spaniard needed 4 sets to beat Frenchman Gael Monfils. Argentinean Juan Martin del Potro has access to next round.
