I arrived home safely in 8h 40m. Slowed down a bit by morning fog in the Ohio part of the trip.

I enjoyed watching the tournament very much this year. Now I have to get back to playing tennis.  :)

Many say big John is a mental giant because he's not afraid of anybody, well, maybe he's not but he can't focus hard enough on the big points either he should have done more damage in those tbs........ his bh blows, his fh is big but not versatile enough, his return tot sucks and he seems slow and unfit generally....

And he's barely ranked inside the top 20...

But he's obviously tough on fast American hardcourts in best of 3 set matches.

Just a note to acknowledge the win for Hsieh / Peng & the Bryans. The former are enjoying a good year, and the latter are just an outstanding team.

Apparently the Williams / Azarenka match was a cracker - I'll try to catch up on that. I doubt if Williams will be weeping into her pillow at this loss.

If the Bryans capture this USO, they'll have completed the CYGS.

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

A blessing for Isner that he was 'hurt' and not playing this week because if he did -- I would guarantee you that he would do NOTHING at the US Open.  He would be 'too tired'! :rofl_2:  He's the kind of player that does well with warm-up tournaments...and fizzes out at the slams.
