    Waw is simply over powering Nishi.

    I hope Djoko & Murray don't burn out themselves in their QF match. They really need healthy legs to face the beast Wawa.

    But I guess 2 days break will help both in a great way!

    Stan wins the 1st set.
    Nishikori's game looks really flat right. Bad start

    Two days help.The bottom draw has to play 3 matches in a 4 day span.Its a joke!!There should be an off day between the semis and final.

    That's the destiny of Nishikori, Ferrer of 2010s, who's always overpowered by the top players. He should add muscle if he were to compete against the best.

    That's what I've predicted since Wimbledon. Stan owns Djokovic in HC slams now!

    Stan gave Nadal 2010 USO by eliminating every tough opponent in Nadal's half including Murray and then losing in 5 sets to Youzhny! He did it again in 2013 by taking Novak to 5 sets in epic semifinal making sure Novak is not at his best in the final. Time to return the favor and help ******* win USO. Vamos!

    Yes I am. He is my #2 favorite player. #2. As long as my #1 player is in the draw I want his road to be clear of obstacles.

    Pshhhh as if you would be ok with Kei playing Fed in the final. Nice try.

    I on the other hand would love to have Fed playing Kei in the final.

    I recall at least one medical timeout by Nishikori for his feet in the Raonic match and that was overall a really long match so no surprise if he isn't 100% percent. As far as USA goes - he at least has a US coach. I like Nishikori but I'd prefer to see Stan win.

    I'm thinking Nishikori must be pacing or conserving energy. He can return Raonics shots (serve and forehand), but can't handle Wawrinka. He's not running for shots that he can make.

    Stan is my 3rd choice for title. Fed #1 of course. Novak #2.

    Berdych is my #2 favorite choice for immediate retirement from tennis. It's because of him losing 17 straight times to my #1 choice and because of him ruining countless draws.

    The match has been close so far. Total points won 45-43 in favor of Wawa.

    I just feel like Nishikori is a cracked dam trying his best to hold Wawrinka's water and altho it can hold it for a while, eventually it will break and the water will flow all over it and past it. He doesnt do anything better than Stan, ill be suprised if this isnt straight sets. A lapse in mental focus is his only hope.

    I love watching these guys play!

    Such a break from Djoko, Nadal and Murray (even though I LOVE Nadal).

    For a guy with such a great backhand, I'm surprised he slices the ball so much on the return. Must be advice from the Fed.
