You can always count on excitement and drama during the last Grand Slam of the year, and especially in New York.
  • Serena Williams, the clear favorite, is seeded 28th because she was off tour for the last year, despite winning 2 tournaments this summer.
  • Maria Sharapova was probably the next most likely to advance deep into the draw, has just lost to Flavia Pennetta (who?)
  • World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki seems to be back on track despite being distracted by her golfer friend.
  • Young Americans are stepping up: Sloane Stevens, Christina McHale, Jack Sock, John Isner.
  • Good to see Mardy Fish having much deserved success.
  • Hoping Andy Roddick finds his mojo.
  • Novak Djokovic continues to roll.
Who are you rooting for?

Sad to hear the bizzare news that Venus Williams has been afflicted with Sjogren�s syndrome and had to pull out just before her 2nd round match. Really wish her all the best, and hope that, at age 31, her body will allow her to compete again.

Finally the rain is gone and matches have been rescheduled.

Looks like the Andy Roddick of old is back and playing well, John Isner is also in top form, but Rodger Federer is playing absolutely amazing, almost flawless against Tsonga.

Sam Stoser is having a great run, and Caroline is fighting hard, but will need to come up with something great to stop Serena.

So disappointing to see Federer lose like that, up 5-3 in the fifth against Djokovic, serving with 2 match points. Credit to Novak.

Big congrats to American teenagers Melanie Oudin and Jack Sock for taking the mixed doubles title. That's a great accomplishment for these promising young players.

After yet another unacceptable and disrespectful outburst from Serena Williams, she is fined only $2,000 on $1.4 million winnings. Very dissappointing behavior from a so-called role model, with seemingly no consequence. Nothing about it is good for the game. Glad Stosur kept her cool and didn't let Serena's intimidation game distract her.

On a positive note, Djokovic continues his amazing season with an impressive win over Nadal. It was a very high quality match worthy of a Grand Slam final.
