Just a quick note to all of you tennis fans out there--
The U.S. Open Mens Semifinal between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, the world's number 1 ranked player (Novak) versus the number 3 ranked player (Roger) was unbelievably amazing from start to finish and is destined to be an instant classic. The winner of the match would go on to face the winner of the Rafael Nadal/Andy Murray match in the final of the U.S. Open on Monday, September 12, 2011, and it totally lived up to its billing and all of the hype!
Djokovic went on to reel off the next two sets, and the two men then started the fifth, and final, set to decide the outcome of the match and who would move on to the final on Monday. Back and forth the two men went, both serving pretty well and hitting the most amazing returns and ground strokes. This was championship tennis at its very, very best.
While Rafael Nadal dispatched the Scot, Andy Murray, relatively easily in four sets in the other mens semi-final, I have to think that Djokovic will win his third major this year by winning the U.S. Open Final on Monday night. It should be a helluva final--another great battle between Rafa and the Djoker. Me, I'd like to see Djokovic win this and just put a heck of an exclamation point on the great year he has had so far.
If you really love tennis go to You-Tube, or the U.S. Open's website (usopen.org/) and look for the video of the match between Federer and Djokovic. Awesome stuff!
