Novak still have to play DelPo for the bronze so when does that take place? Before the final? So...it is Roger against Murray - again - in best of 5. I know 99% of the people here will be pulling for Murray. No problem. I'll hold down that other 1%. The good news is that they both will walk away with a medal.

The players are really taking it hard, I guess playing for your country has a lot of meaning for them.

New Rule
If you only win 3 games in a semifinal you must abdicate your no. 1 ranking immediately.

List of players out of Rogers Cup: Federer, Ferrer, Ferrero, Monfils, Verdasco, Almagro, Roddick, Nadal, Wawrinka, Istomin, Haase, Davydenko, Harrison.


Any confirmation on Federer - it's not on his website.


Yes Fed has withdrawn from the Rogers Cup this year, as reported on the official website.

http://www.rogerscup.com/men/english/currentNews.php?id=FEDERER_PULLS_OUT_OF_ROGERS_CUP_PRESENTED_BY_NATIONAL_BANK


But no need to worry since even if Novak wins the title, and granted that Roger is already in the finals of the Olympics, Federer's ranking is untouchable at least for some time.

well, is this shocking? what is this event? a MAJOR chance to go into history, and a chance that only comes every 4 years.
and yes, they play more for their countries than for themselves.
I disagree with Luggy, bronze is not better than silver, that would be the case when in the past both semifinals losers shared bronze.
to the losers today, it is heartbreaking, they felt in the last hurdle, not in the finishing line, there's not a lot to play between a bronze and a 4th place, but a lot between gold and silver, today the losers felt and were crushed emotionally.
doesn't mater if it was a marathon to remember or forget (Del Potro and Ferrer/Lopez) close matches (Dkokovic, Gasquet/Benneteau, Huber/Raymond -last olympics) or demolitions  (Azarenka and Kirilenko).
they simply lost and for what this event means, I can fully understand their sadness, disappointment and tears.

yes, she is! and sadly for what I have seen in Maria, there's almost small chances to see a royal battle to be a golden career grand slam champion, but let's wait and see. what do you think?

Ciijsters leaving for the very last time Centre Court was difficult to watch. so sad. another great player and what is more a rolemodel saying good bye to the home of tennis.

This comment about "hating opponents" is another idiosyncratic protocol unique to tennis.

Sport is sport. There may be many things about sport that you don't understand.
