You're right, I was getting way ahead of myself. Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing Blake win.

I like Blake but I'm an Agassi nut, and this just might be his last best chance at a U.S. Open title. Everyone that was supposed to win, i.e. Roddick, Coria, Nadal, has lost, and right now Blake-Ginepri is a much easier quarterfinal-semifinal one-two punch than it could have been for Agassi, and is all that stands between the legend and a showdown with the #1 in the world, Federer, or in the offchance that the other semifinal doesn't go the way everyone thinks it will, Hewitt. Agassi in all likely will never have such a relatively easy, Roddick-less road to the U.S. Open final again. Go Agassi!

When you think about it. Without Safin and Nadal to worry about, the Federer is going to have an easy US Open win. Nobody is standing in his way that he can't easily beat. Either Blake, Agassi, or Ginapri will easily be defeted if they face federer in the final.

No. Agassi can beat Federer. Trust me. Last year in the U.S. Open, Agassi and Federer played each other in one of the later rounds, and it went five sets over two days(rain delay), and were it not for the incredible wind on the second day that rendered Agassi's serve relatively ineffective, he may well have defeated Federer. Agassi is one of the few people in the tournament who DOES have a realistic shot at beating Federer.

Robby Ginepri graduated two years after me from the same high school as me. He and his family live near me and are very nice. The community here is really pulling for him. Our high school and the grade school that his mother teaches at both have signs up cheering for him.

GO WHS!

Agassi is down two sets. It's not looking good for him.

I've always like Agassi, but I wouldn't mind seeing Blake continue this magical run he's on.

I think Agassi will come back and win it.

Congrats to the old guy! What a great match. It's too bad that someone had to lose.

That was some match. I felt bad for Blake - he gave it everything he had.

I hope Agassi has an easier time in the semis - I don't want him to run out of gas too soon, especially if it's Federer waiting for him at the end.

I WAS RIGHT! For some reason, I just knew that Agassi would come back and win it.

I am pissed. Coria gave away the match to Ginepri... he had it won up a break in the fifth set and he had to give it up with two double faults It was clear to me that Ginepri did not have what it took to win the match, so Coria served it to him

Coria had bad luck, otherwise. As someone pointed out, he missed several shots by a couple of inches.

I'm happy for Agassi, though. I hope that he is not too tired as he has the mind and the talent to make it to the final without much sweat. Ginepri's run is over.

Now I need to cheer for the miracle... Nalbandian beating Federer.

Unreal!!! It's funny when you're watching sporting events that turn out to be epic because you don't realise it at first obviously but there comes a point in the match/game or whatever where you start to think "I can't go to bed yet, I can't turn this off". You have no reason at that point to feel that way but somthing tells you to keep watching. Last night was like that. When Agassi won the third set the phone ran. It was brother phoneing to make sure I was watching, the fourth set my mom called and by half way threw the fifth I had to wake up my roomate because as a sports fan it's somthing he'd want to see. When Agassi won the phone ran three different times. Agassi is the man. Not to get too far ahead but I can smell an Agassi vs Federer final. Hats off to Blake but his time will come.
