Fair play to Nishikori, great performance. As a Murray fan I'm very disappointed with this result but as a Nishikori fan this is great to see. Reminding everyone what he's capable of. Got a pretty good chance of another US Open Final I reckon and who knows. Maybe time to get the title he should've got last time.

Just like in 2014, it would be great to see two players who never has won a slam in their career in the USO final.

Muzzler = boring hacker era
Muzzler vs Nole = most boring matches of the hacker era
Samurai Noodles = aggressive baseline era

Seriously I feel sorry now for the NexGen or aggressors even older DelPo, Dolgo and Cilic
to put up with the hackery of Muzzler, Nole and Rafa the greatest hackery trio ever

I am the nextGEN here to force play with aggression
not Hack my way with slicing it all back like Muzzler
although courts suit pushers I will never use Hackery

Just curious. Why is Nishikori being called "the moth"?
You didn't watch, obviously :)

Not only that he is lightweight and flies around court like a moth, but he also teamed up with one to defeat the Scotsman.
Moths are known to be deadly for wool. He chewed the holes in that Scottish kilt and Murray got exposed.

I missed most of the match because I was at work. I guess he made contact with a moth on court somehow?

Truth be told, they both choked a bit at various stages... Kei did hit few insane returns, though.

I think the final will be Monfils vs Nishikori.

I hope Kei wins his first grand slam, that or he will lose by retiring.

The Moth would burn if he gets too close to king Nole's fire.

That was so surprising but yeah, don't think there are too many unhappy with it ;) If the Guru makes it through we are in for a special final.
