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

    I suspect Stan was injured here. His game is certainly much better than in years past, and he was en route to eliminating Djoker before his groin started to bother him. His dismantling of Murray and play against Djoker suggests Wawrinka's a top player now, and when you're there, there should be...

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

    Djoker breaks. How much resilience is left in Stan...?

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

    Fifth set: Announcers are saying Stan's slightly injured, groin issue. If true, yes he needs a lucky break and to hold serve.

    Stan off-kilter. Needs more mental composure.

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

    A series of unforced errors by Djoko gives a crucial break to Wrinka there. 5-3 Wrinka.

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

    Djoker breaks back, some mishits by Stan in that last series. What's going on here--is it the sun? Wear a hat...

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

    I remain stunned by Wawrinka's precision. Yes, it looks like vintage Fed. Who has Stan been hitting with? :)

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

    Wawrinka breaks! Incredible ball control, and yes--his down-the-line 1HB is a thing of beauty and perhaps the best in the game now.

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

    Long fourth game. Wawrinka looked like he wasn't seeing the ball well with some mishits, but saved the game on his serve. Djokovic seems like he's trying to mentally focus.

    Andy Murray (3) vs. Denis Istomin- USO 2013 R16

    lol Murray not happy with Istomin's delay and new colors. Then Istomin comes back and bounces the ball a lot in his new gigs. A lot of muttering from Murray. This match is a riot!

    Federer vs Robredo ( Round 4)

    Fed strategy--serve and volley Fed's made some bad judgments in coming to the net...

    Giorgi--impressive

    Exactly. She won outright winners off her forehand by pummelling the ball in baseline rallies. That's not "lucky"--it's being aggressive and having confidence in your shots.

    Giorgi--impressive

    slugger... That's what comes to mind. She is hitting like a beast and pushing Wozniacki all around the court. Her forehand is ferocious!

    Giorgi--impressive

    Ferocious, determined...taking Wozniaki to the third set. It's hard to concentrate on the score with these two :)

    Asics G5 w/ Superfeet--stability issues

    GR5s stability If I wear two pairs of socks they fit fine. No heel slippage. One pair of socks and they feel loose in the toe box and the heel. Superfeet don't seem to help me.

    lateral stability issues with Superfeet?

    Anybody run into lateral stability issues with Superfeet? I have low arches/flat right foot and I put Superfeet blue in GR5s and they became unstable...foot was rolling too much to the outside, likely the result of putting a semi-rigid arch on top of a shoe w. built in arch support. Wondering...

    Shoes for Recovering Stress Fracture?

    shoes Really hard to say. You've been wearing the Asics GRs for four years but had the stress fracture last year. Did the fracture occur in the GRs? It may have nothing to do with the shoe but just with the way you landed or pushed off. For preventing any kind of reinjury in any foot/leg...

    Asics G5 w/ Superfeet--stability issues

    addendum The shoes feel mostly fine with two pairs of socks and their stock insoles. I haven't had any foot issues playing in them. When stopping and pushing off though, I felt for whatever reason that the shoes were a tad lacking in the support department--like if I had to run very fast to...

    Asics G5 w/ Superfeet--stability issues

    Anyone else finding they have to keep relacing the Asics to get them stable? My feet are sliding around a bit, even w/ two pairs of socks. Putting Superfeet Blue in the shoe (I have low arches) also makes my foot kind of unstable. Wondering if anyone else has experienced either of these...
