    Janowicz lost in straight sets today - disappointing, to say the least. I really thought he could break through and make another semi-final here.

    So Janowicz and Dimitrov out, the former had a long chat with trainer. But yes it's a shame as Janowicz had a relatively open draw, and Dimitrov really needs to go deep in a GS for once...

    MATE, where have you been? You've missed a fair amount
    I was on a holiday to Dubai with Fam, so nice to see my results and i've just read your comments about the US open Draw so happy for Rafa. Davedenko OMG! 6/6 FINALLY? HAHAHA i though Davedenko may retire and keep his prestigious record then again he may not even face Rafa to keep the H2H positive.

    Nadal will probably level the H2H if Davy makes it through to the 3rd Round. Davy's not the player he once was, and Nadal is playing some great tennis right now.

    Yeah, I was a little bit annoyed with the draw Great draw for Rafa though. Then again, there are 3 really good prospective quarter-finals, so I can't really complain if everyone gets to that stage!

    How was the holiday, btw?

    Really nice stayed in Burj al Khalifa the tallest bloody building/hotel in the world. Dubai is such a luxurious place to visit. 20 years ago it was nothing. But now probably the best place to visit.

    Zemlja's Plan A of all-out aggression isn't working, and he doesn't seem to have a Plan B either. The crowd have not had an opportunity to get into this match at all.

    Federer played well. Serve and volleying were definitely clicking, although Zamlja played pretty poorly and Federer wasn't allowed to have much fun out there.

    Such a cringey interview with Fed on court after the match. "What is your message for the children, the future...". He's not the Dalai Lama for ****'s sake.

    It was amazing, couldn't believe he managed it at first
    It was astonishing - that was literally the third or fourth point of the tournament and he's already hit one of the shots of the tournament!

    Great to see Venus win. I love the fact that she continues to play despite having a pretty horrible couple of years.

    Perhaps i'm wierd but i've never remotely cared about how arrogant a player is, they are not my friends so it does not matter.
    (Original post by Malevolent)
    Same I don't give a crap how arrogant they are. Most of the greats had a little mean/arrogant side to them which made them so good. Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and all that.
    I completely agree with you two.

    Play has been suspended at the US Open for quite a while now.

    Poor Andy Murray - he's really being screwed over now. Wimbledon 2007-like rain, anyone?

    At this rate, he may not even get to go on court until tomorrow, at which point Rafa and Roger would be ready to play their Round 2 matches.

    Not really the way to treat a defending champion, methinks. At Wimbledon, the previous year's champ plays at 1pm on Centre on Day 1 itself, so I'm a little puzzled as to why the top half of the draw did not play first?

    Wimbledon method definitely seems more fair but thinking about that probably won't do Murray any favours, he's just gonna have to concentrate on the task at hand :/

    Yeah, he'll be fine anyway - this scheduling will only affect his first 2/3 rounds, which he should clear quite comfortably. It would be far worse if he were to experience problems like this in the Quarters or Semis.
