Should be a hell of semis and finals. Djokovic just beat Roddick so its Nadal Vs Murray and Djokovic Vs Federer.

Djokovic is the favourite, beating Roddick who was unstoppable the other day. Federer has been playing better. It could be an epic one.


Murray is playing well too, and Nadal is clearly exhausted, it will be a difficult one for Nadal.

My prediction is a Nadal/Djokovic finals and Djokovic taking the Grand Slam.

Federer is playing better in spurts, but still has to deal with an incredible amount of unforced errors. There's no way he can afford to give up so many points to Djokovic. I'd agree that he probably takes it all.

I'm rooting for Murray as i've noticed he's rocking the Fred Perrys....
Although I caught the on-the-court, post match interview with Djokovic and i was pretty shocked with how he called out Roddick and the American crowd. Anyone else here it? It was kind of reminiscant of wrestling. Anywyas, good on him and i hope he does well.

Recently, i've totally become a born-again tennis fan. maybe it's becuase i've taken up playing it again, but it's nice being a tennis fan again.

same here fancy, Im back watching tennis and playing it again.

I dont know about djokovic, Robredo and Roddick have both called him out. He says he is having like 4 injuries at the same time, wich I doubt its true. Its sounds like players are tired of his acting. I was rooting for him till now though but I want a Federer/Nadal finals. For me they are the best and at the same time the most respectable ones. I actually wouldnt mind Federer taking it.

Oh really?

So Djokovic was the one who essentially started it by crying about injuries?

HAHA! i guess he's the prick then!

Go Murray!

I am really looking forward to the mens semifinal matches! I'll be working, sadly ... but will definitely tape them. I definitely think Nadal is going to beat Murray ... Andy has had a good year but, realistically, he's no match. The Federer-Djokovic match will be interesting ... a year ago, I would have pulled for the Djoker but now ... not so much. He plays a great game, but there's just something about his attitude now that gets on my nerves. And R-Fed has been showing more emotion on court which endears him to me just a little more. Go R-Fed ... he can't afford to make mistakes or Djokovic will win it.

Hoping for a Nadal-Federer final with Nadal taking it all.

Yeah I heard it. He should stop whining like a little baby and accept the fact that he will not be liked by everyone. Especially when he plays a quarter final match in NYC against a damn American. Use your sense.

Nadal - Murray is back, Nadal trying to win 3 sets in a row. Won the first.

I love Murrays style, he looks like he is not hitting the ball hard, but he throws missiles that make the oponent run from side to side constamtly. He is a future top 3 IMO.

I think it's great that it would appear that Nadal will hardly be alone in a class by himself. Murray has got Nadal's game down pretty good himself. He showed me something by weathering the force that Nadal was throwing at him, and regaining the momentum after tightening up.

Wow, was I ever wrong about today's match. I thought Nadal would come out and destroy Murray. I have got to give credit to Murray. That second game of the fourth set, when he blew all of those break points, could have been the derailing of him. But he hung tough and fought through. Nadal was outplayed two days in a row. Wow.

R-Fed will need to serve well tomorrow. If he serves well and comes in a lot, he should win. Don't be surprised if Murray wins this thing though. He has truly arrived. I remember him destroying Fed in Cinci a couple of years ago. Could be good.

LOL I'm just saying ...

I will start cheering for Djokovic again once he becomes more mature. Until then, I will just admire his play and clap politely. And cheer on his opponents loudly ... because that boy really, really needs to be humbled.

Federer won, he completely destroyed Murray. Congrats to him, this should finnish the stupid comments about him being over. Murray might have become my favourite player though. From now on I will cheer for Federer, Nadal, and Murray. All of them have class acts and great playing.

Stupid Canadian sports channels ... not one of them broadcasted the tennis. Not one. Seriously, can we send a letter of complaint to TSN guys, do you know?

Amen to that. I hate idiots who think they know all about tennis and start sprouting off things about Roger being done. To those morons I say a big fat so there. And I'm not even a huge R-Fed fan.

I saw the highlights ... wonderful game. I was very impressed. By R-Fed, and by Murray. Agree with you Bel ... they are definitely 3 of my favourite players now.
