Federer dominates the US Open

Roger Federer completely dominated the entire tournament and won it all convincingly at the end. The finals against Roddick was close, but (I think) only in terms of the score.

Earlier, it was a surprise to see two Russian men in the semis. It was only expected to happen in the women’s draw since there are so many more Russian women than men.

Of course, in the end, it only needed one Russian to last all the way. Sharapova beat Justine Henin is one of the most boring matches I have seen in a long time. Both the women’s semis were also quite pathetic and I am going to count myself out of watching women’s tennis for a while now.

  1. King Federer rocks! It was an awesome tournament for him, especially after the ungainly exit in Toronto. He is surely a good successor to the Sampras legacy. Hope his motivation remains for a few more years and he scales new heights in tennis history.

    @spm: That Toronto exit just seemed to be nonsense … maybe he wanted to rest a little bit before the US Open (10 days instead of just 1 week)! 🙂

  3. What you saw in his games against Blake and Roddick was that the opponents had to play at their very best all through, to have even a chance of staying in the match. And as far as Federer was concerned, he could have the luxury of slipping into a bad patch, realising it, and then just shifting quickly to a higher gear, and close it off. Like he said, he’s living what can be a dream for any sportsperson. Like being “in the zone”, only he’s in it for a helluva long time.. !

    @spm: True, he is living a dream. In fact, in one of the post-match interviews on the court, he ended up saying something to the effect of ‘i cannot play flawless tennis all the time’ 🙂
