Great match this between Kohl and Nadal. They have now played 6 matches on hardcourt, and Kohl has won a set in each match. Nadal's breakpoint conversion rate is worse today than Federer's! Although it is clearly due to Kohl's very high level more than anything. This is my favorite match so far, and Robredo-Nadal will also be interesting. 

Regarding the earlier match, Robredo's forehand was out of this world! So was his mental toughness. The most memorable upset in US Open history!
“It is not too far way,” Toni Nadal told The Australian after Nadal collected the 13th major of his career by mowing down Novak Djokovic in an electrifying final of the US Open. “It is getting very, very close for Rafa to be level with Roger or more.”

It could be pretty horrible for me!

Putting my hopes on Kohli and Gasquet to save it though :cheer:

20-10 winners(Kohli-Nadal)

21-11 UE

Nadal still hasn't had his serve broken at the 2013 US Open, and we are almost up to the QF  :))

On the bright side (1) there will be no Djokovic-Murray Final and (2) Murray may not reach the final. Mathmaticall, Murray-Nadal >= 0 > Djokovic-Murray

I hope we see Nadal and Murray in the final. Never seen a slam final yet between them. Probably the most entertaining matchup in tennis, based on their 2011 meetings at Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open.
