Default US Open 2007 - Tennis

Gunning for his forth consecutive US open title.

Nadal, Roddick, Djokovic all in his way.

I bow down to Federer's greatness. His humbleness. (Just still not convinced that he is the best ever. Best in this era and some, yeah!! Top three may be!!)

Federer all the way. Let the master teach us a thing or two about tennis.

Is there any point in hoping that Roddick will win?

Sania first Indian woman to be seeded at US Open
The 20-year-old has been seeded 26th at the championship, which gets underway at the Flushing Meadows in New York from August 27. Sania, who reached a career-high WTA ranking of 28 last week, is likely to get an easy first-round draw as a result of her seeding.

His biceps perhaps? It's intimidating to all Males. Even Federer.

Djokovic has the all-around game to threaten tennis’s ruling duality of Federer and Nadal.I think he has all the credentials to deny the greatest player in the world should they meet in the final.

Roddick has fallen off the radar. Djokovic has better chances at meeting Federer in the final. But Federer fears Nadal more.

Only interested in the women's game since Sampras. Williams sisters ATW. Like Sharapova too, albeit for different reasons. About the men's game, the ethnic cleanser seems to be a contender, and default favorite Federer still looks like a man trying swallow his own face. Nadal just bugs ...

I think its going to be Federer again....Djokovic is probably the only guy who has a shot at it other then Federer....

btw do guys know that Nadal's 1st round opponent tonight Alun Jones had played the role of Tom Cavendish in the movie 'Wimbledon' opposite Kirsten Dunst?

He had a minor role right. Cause it was Paul Bettany who played the lead.

Nadal gets past Jones with injury. Has to dig deep. Both knees heavily tapped in the middle of 3rd set. 7-5 3-6 6-4 6-1.

Nadalz game was painful to watch! First of all it was very obvious that Nadal was not at his best, the unforced errors and the number of first serves tha were out..bu u no hes a fighter..n came thru in the end..

I giv Jones a lot of credit played well...Overall the tennis was very bad..however there were sparks..despite this the game was very fascinatin to watch..enjoyd it..then agen it is only a first round match, and at a cuple of stages it looked like rafa may make an early exit..

I also must add tha...Yellow n Grey in tha combination are sooo not rafaz colours lmao

Awesome Tennis in the last 12 hours with Blake winning in 5 sets and now Djokavic winning a great 5 setter against Stephanek

End of Henman era.

Quote:
Tim Henman put in a battling display before his Grand Slam career came to an end with a 7-6 2-6 7-5 6-4 defeat to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the US Open. The 32-year-old Briton displayed some of his trademark touch at the net and raised hopes of another improbable win after dominating the second set.
But Frenchman Tsonga, 22, put Henman under increasing pressure with some magnificent serving.
Henman saved one match point at 3-5 but Tsonga kept his cool to seal victory.
"He played too good for me," admitted Henman.
"I've had a fantastic career. Playing in front of crowds like this make it so special to the players and that's something I'll miss.
"Relief is not quite the right word but I am ready to get on with the next part of my life."
The Briton will make his final farewell to tennis at Britain's Davis Cup tie against Croatia, which begins on 21 September at Wimbledon.
His final Grand Slam match encapsulated why he has decided to call time on his 14-year career.
Henman showed all the craft and guile he has become renowned for - but Tsonga, nicknamed 'Ali' by his fellow players, was simply too powerful and too athletic.

Roddick through after an impressive win over Thomas Johansson. Federer also through after losing the first set in a tie breaker.

Big upset after last year's champion Maria Sharapova lost today. Big attraction gone.
