Coric is another future star but Zverev was pretty average yesterday as he was in the 1st round. So one of my bonus bets is out.

The low break point conversion rate of male tennis players often baffles me. I know the server has an advantage but why wasn't it an advantage in the 3 points he lost to get to break point? 

 Even the great ones usually have a low conversion rate. Nadal took 14 break points today to get his first break of serve.Shocked

Looking like a Fed/Nadal semi is a near certainty which will be nice for those going along. Even nicer for those selling tickets on the secondary market. Prices have nearly tripled in the last week. Now looking at a minimum of US$575 if you want to go along and sit right up the back.

Del Potro sends Federer packing and my bonus bets have gone the same way.

Nadal playing much better than expected. Must have been the filip from me writing him off.

It's funny seeing Pat Cash, supposedly the ogre sexist of tennis, coaching a woman- go Coco.

The draw seemed funny ?       I'm sure they said Nadal went through
without playing anyone rated in the top 35 in the world.

He made the final look easy .

With Federer not playing well in this US Open and Djokovic and Murray out of form and not turning up, it did not matter who Nadal played. He thrashed the second best player in the tournament.

Del Potro was 28
Anderson was 32

But it's a good point anyway. Unusual to win a grand slam without having to play any of the real top players. Not sure it would have a difference though as he was pretty dominant for most of the tournament.

It was a foregone conclusion- no possible way Anderson could win unless Nadal retired hurt. I watched the Packers game.

Which was also pretty dull but at least I didn't know the result before kickoff.Tongue
