Did anyone stay up to see Djokovic and Wawrinka last night? I didn't watch it, although I wish I had since I was awake anyway. Sounded pretty epic... I loved Djokovic's match against Stepanek the other day.

Also, I'd love for the commentators to ask one of these Fango questions about which player's outfit the viewers like the best during one of the men's matches.

I watched the last 10 min of the fourth and until about 9-9 in the fifth before I got too tired. Pretty epic but I don't know about all these "best match I've ever seen" calls. Both of them won their service games pretty easily all night.

There were 14 breaks of serve all night, plus numerous tough service games.

What's your point? There were several long games though yes.

That their service games weren't held 'pretty easily all night' like you said.

Raonic serving 210kmh bombs regularly. Just served one that went at 233kmh. Wowee.

Has anyone ever been hit by a tennis ball going that fast? It would have to hurt.

Maybe if it was served at the body, a full blown body serve, and it wouldn't surprise me if it left a noticeable mark at all.

So, whose outfit do we like better? I have to admire Federer's daring pink accent on the shoes.

Federer/Tsonga was fantastic.

I love watching Tsonga when he's able to utilize that serve and that big forehand to overpower the opponent. But he just wasn't quite consistent enough with them last night. The serve went away at times. And Fed is all too consistent. Good stuff.
