Some big upsets

Pannetta smoked #4 Errani 3 & 1 :paper bag:  Errani reached the semis last year.

Nara (JPN) def. #19 Cirstea. Sorana's had a great summer. Terrible way to end it.

American Alison Riske takes out #28 Barthel

Knapp def. #22 Vesnina

Serena keeps on rolling (in singles) -- she's in  a battle in the double's match (1 set all)

You know it's really bad in Women's tennis when the #4 seeded player loses and......no body cares.

Victoria still winning easy.

Yikes!

Great to see a young American pull a big upset. Hope Riske continues to do well!

I'm watching the Kerber/Bouchard match now (had it recording) and it is SUCH A GOOD MATCH! Great hitting by both! Especially Bouchard. That FH is lethal. So depressing that I know she ends up losing :'(

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

Okay, seriously, people need to look up the highlights of the Bouchard/Kerber match. Or, heck, the entire replay if they can find it. This is seriously an amazing match. If Bouchard can continue to play like this, she's definitely on the rise! She's only 19 and already developing her game to be extremely potent. Big shots from both wings, especially the FH. I wouldn't be surprised if she pulls a couple of big scalps and moves into the Top 20 by this time next year!

Good to hear! :good:

I just caught my first glimpse of Bouchard but wish I could have seen the entire match. I watched the 2nd set, which was pretty terrible. Love Kerber.

Yeah, she's really good. Definitly on her way up! Watch the beginning of the first set. They were both making incredible shots.

I'm a big Kerber fan as well, but I've been pretty disappointed with her lately.

Yessssssssss. Isner takes the first set. I really enjoy this match, so many great points. Both players are trying their best. I'm so impressed with Isner atm, great touch at the net. Above all, thank God, TSN is showing this match on TV, they just do some updates on Nadal between changeovers.

The Williams double match was very exciting.

Yeah, I like Hampton a lot more than Sloan, so I was definitely rooting for her, but she got smoked. As did Robson :(

Nadal vs Federer AND Serena vs Sloane. This is the best US Open EVER.
“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.”

I hope Serena crushes Sloane. Dunno why, but I'm really starting to dislike Sloane.

Me too. Serena is a lot more outgoing/likeable. Although it would be better for tennis if Sloane won (competition is always good for tennis, especially when the emerging talent is another minority - be good for tennis if there are more African-Americans at the top). So I hope Serena wins, but I see the positive in Sloane winning.
