  1. Did anybody watch the Murray - Nishikori match yesterday? In my entire life, I don't think I've ever seen such a momentum change from a single event. During the 4th set, Murray had a break point to go up 2-0, was in a slightly advantageous position during that point, and was well on his way towards closing out the match. Then, during the point, feedback from the PA system went off, and the umpire (*correctly*, in my opinion) called a let. Murray positively imploded, complaining that in the first set, the umpire said they'd play on anytime there's crowd noise. (The umpire replied, 'Yes, but this was more than just crowd noise," and she was right.) Nishikori then won 14 of the next 16 points, breaking Murray, and running out the 4th set 6-1! And then somehow, as if scripted, he hung on to win the 5th set 7-5. In Murray's mind, the feedback was the sole cause of the loss, but I know from experience that players often look for an excuse to lose, and Murray happened to find one to rally around. He fell apart mentally, and that's why he lost - he complained about this one event after every single point for several *games*.

  2. Here is the official website for the 2015 U.S. Open, running Aug 31 - Sep 13, 2015 Scores & Stats - Draws - Schedule - Players - Video & Photos - News - Event Guide - Social - Shop - Tickets Do yourselves a favor: Even if you haven't traditionally been a huge tennis fan, try and get into the U.S. Open this year - it's a great tournament, and the players right now are as good as they will be for a long time into the future - the top players are getting older, and the chances you have to see them are growing smaller and smaller.These are halcyon times for tennis, and it's a good time to be getting into it as a spectator - imagine if you could tell your grandchildren that you watched Rod Laver beat Ken Rosewall. If anyone has any questions at all, no matter how rudimentary, either post them here, or send me a Private Message. I'll be happy to help you out in any way I can, and there's no such thing as a "stupid" question, I promise you - you can't possibly expect to know things if you've never been told them before.
  3. I got a text message on my phone this morning from a friend up at the U.S. Open (official website): "Fed needs Murray or Stan to beat Jokodick." He's right. Federer does not want to meet Djokovic in the finals like he did at Wimbledon; he'd much rather face Murray or Wawrinka (of course this all assumes he'll get past Berdych in the semis, and for that matter, Monfils in the quarters (which he should - Federer has pretty much of a dream draw)). (Recall that Rafael Nadal missed the tournament this year with a wrist injury.)
  4. A discussion by Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova about one of their epic matches and then further discussions about today's competitors and comparing tennis players over the eras and with different equipment.
