    I watched part of #1 seed& defending champion, Roger Federer's quarter final match today against #8 seed,Kevin Anderson. It certainly turned into something more considering Roger was up 2 sets to none,the 3rd set,started to slip away from him.The match went the distance,no tie breakers in 5th set,Kevin won 13-11 .
    Both players hit amazing shots,Kevin seemed to become stronger in the 5th set,congrats to him on a well earned win. Sue

    Shame that Roger didn't make it through but well done to Kevin Anderson. Did you see the Nadal v Del Potro one? Another entertaining match.

    Hi Pam,I did watch some of Nadal v DelPotro match,agree it was entertaining.
    Its wonderful to see for a change,American,JOhn Eisner has made into the semi finals. One of the ESPN tennis announcers,,Patrick McEnroe said 'I'm going with Eisner to win his 1st Grand Slam title'. I'm with him. Sue

    Alas,John Eisner was eliminated in the semis by Kevin Anderson in 5 sets. He'll play the winner of Rafa vs Novak match Sue

    Yes, John Isner lost to Kevin Anderson, in a crazy 26/24 5th set. Match was over 6 hours!
    They say this may be the match that changes the rules to have a 5th set tie-breaker.
    Great Nadal/Djokovic match on now .......Go Rafa!!

    I love watching tennis. But try as I may. I simply cannot figure out the scoring.

    It's weird.

    The men's final is set, Kevin Anderson will play Novak Djokovic tomorrow in the men's final.
    I'll be rooting for Kevin,would be a nice change to have some one unexpected to win the title. I personally have never liked Novak Sue

    Stayed up last night and watched the women's final. Serena Williams (US) lost to Angelique Kerber (Ger) in straight sets. I am so impressed by Serena's dignity and grace. She is truly a sportswoman.
