Serena had another meltdown.

I saw it. Stosur wasn't getting that ball.

Serena beat herself playing so poorly combined with Stosur's superior play today. Pretty surprising loss for Serena but I think she'll still win a couple more majors.


Hopefully, Novak wins tomorrow but either player will be a fitting champion.

It doesn't matter if Stosur was getting that ball, Serena still screamed before she hit it. And then she freaked out on the chair umpire.

Very glad Stosur kicked her ass in straight sets. All these divas and spoiled brats bring the game down.

Looks like a 4th set on the way.

Also, who else is tired of Nadal and his wedgies. For goodness sakes...

PS, I love the seeing the 3 business men near courtside in the near court who seem to be rooting for Novak hardcore.

I can't believe Novak is fighting through this pain.

It certainly helps that Nadal can't buy a good serve lately.

Sloppy ending to the match but you can't fault them. Nadal was apparently completely out of gas and Novak was walking around with a tight back.

They both deserve a nice long hot bath.

Post Re: The Tennis Thread - U.S. Open '11
I've watched about 30 minutes of tennis for the Australian Open. I just haven't been interested in it this year. Serena is out, Venus is out, Li Na lost a couple days ago. I guess I can root for Clijsters. The women might be able to get the top 4 seeds to meet in the semis. I don't know if that's happened in a while. I don't think it has.

As for the men, I haven't watched one second of play except for a youtube clip of Bhagdatis ruining 4 rackets. Hopefully Fed can get back on the winning track. I'm surprised Nadal kept playing even after he tweaked his knee but it sounded at lot worse when I read about it. I thought he might have pulled out. He should let that knee heal imo.

That was a tough match to lose for Li Na.

I lost interest in the women's game a few years ago, but I'm still pulling for Clijsters win a second title in her final Australian Open, having knocked out #1 Wozniaki, seeds 2, 3, and 4 are still in it, and look good for the final 4. I thought she was done for in the Na match, but Na did her walkabout and that was it.

The men should hold true to form and have 1-4 in the semis. I'll be up at 3.30am to watch the Fed/Nadal match on Thursday morning, and I still expect Nadal to win. Even with his injury, which he seems to have at every grand slam. I haven't seen too much of Murray this tournament, and Novak's been looking good save for a stretch in the 3rd against Hewitt. Probably looking at a rematch of 2011 Us Open final. Should be a good finish to the tournament.

Oooohhh . Screamers are really testing my patience.

Maria moves on. Good show but someone needs to muzzle her.

I think I find Azarenka's grunting more annoying.

I'm off to bed. Nishikora gave away that 1st set. He had Murray mumbling but couldn't convert a 3 break. C'mon .

Even the women's final 4 is good. If Kvitova wins we finally have a dominant young player and true #1. Azarenka can establish herself and start getting some of that hype. Sharapova and Clijsters would add to their resumes but I'm hoping for Kvitova/Azarenka final

I'll be rooting for Sharapova.

And.

Nadal has Fed's number again! However, Djokovic has Nadal's number. I'm assuming Novak will be in the final. Murray isn't winning any major while those 3 are playing.

An almost 5 hour match that could have gone either way.

However, the better player triumphs once again. Novak vs Rafa. I'm thinking Rafa wins.

I'm hoping Maria wins tomorrow night.

I feel bad for Maria. I think this was worse than the Serena beat down. She was just slow, afraid to come in, no defense, pushed side to side in rallies, and plain outplayed and out hit. This loss is gonna linger.

This men's final has been a marathon.

If Nadal can get this to 5 it could be anyone's game.
