It's the second of the night matches on Ashe, so probably 9-ish.

I'm torn. I'd love to see Roddick win it all and get back on the map, so to speak, but the winner of this match has to play Federer in the semis. I don't like Federer. I don't want him to win. I think Djokovic can beat Federer. I don't think Roddick can. I'm torn.

Federer is officially in the semis. On Saturday it will be Nadal vs. Murray and Federer vs. the winner of Roddick/Djokovic tonight.

Djokovic wins.

Nadal vs Murray, Federer vs Djokovic.

Djokovic can beat Federer. He's done it before. He's good enough.

I find myself always cheering for Federer, but with 12 Grand Slams, it would definitely be nice to see someone else win. Federer is a great representative for the sport, and seems like a great guy. I also like Djokovic, despite his comments last night...the guy's only 21 so I can give him a break...also was a tough crowd for him.

I was at the Open all last weekend - so much fun but next time I'm going to spend a little extra to get good seats at Ashe.

I think it was fair enough for Djokovic to say what he did...the crowd was really bad I thought, for it to be partisan was expected but I think they did go overboard. Plus even though I found Roddicks comments funny, they can be cutting when they suggest something bad about your character which obviously hurt Djokovic. He does actually have a number of health issues especially relating to his breathing as he did have a chest op a few years back to help him with it.

Good point LJT. I've been to a lot of tennis matches, but never have seen the crowd yell during the serve. Of course there were something like 20,000+ at the game, and only a few jerks would yell.

It's interesting - when you become a great tennis player, you almost need media training, and coaching for public speaking. You can say what's on your mind and people may not like it, or you can take the higher road and always be cool and the fans and media and sponsors will love you!

Thought Djokovic (love his impersonations of other players, one of the most charismatic players in the tour)) would beat Federer with his weak shape this year...guess not. And it looks like Murray has a real chance against Nadal. Could be the first non Federer-Nadal final in a long time.
Roddick...instead of whining about your opponent improve your game next time.

Yeah, whining is a complete waste of time and energy!

I can't stand people that whine incessantly.
