    I think today's final was a prime example of where men's tennis is going.

    Hard to define that really. But what I would say, is for offense, Del Potros shots are harder to pull off. They're flatter, hitting with a smaller frame. You expect, for tennis, that to be aggressive and hit winners, you shouldn't be hitting a percentage shot. You would sacrifice spin to hit a...

    I think today's final was a prime example of where men's tennis is going.

    I think everyone watching today realizes the advantages of a more spin heavy game in modern tennis. There's zero reason to approach net other than a put away. Djokovic was landing slices long because anything remotely short against a full poly user will immediately get put away. Hit a hard, high...

    That bagel was well deserved. Happy to see Aga step up like this in a major. Hope she makes the final.

    Is Söderling Grand slam material?

    I think he definitely would have a shot. No doubt in my mind he'd be the number 3 player in the world right now, in front of Ferrer. Probably making deep QF in slams, a few SF's and get a select choice of slam final opportunities. Its a shame he's out, he was my favorite player to watch.

    2013 US Open Men's SF: Novak DJOKOVIC[1] vs. Stanislas WAWRINKA[9]

    If Wawrinka loses this it will because of his low first serve %. He could have won in straights if he had just served well in the 2nd set.
