Too bad about Del Potro, would've liked to see Federer give him a royal ass-whooping after last years final...

I'll root for Roddick as usual and wait for Federer or someone ranked 115 in the world to dump him out in the second week.

That's the only major Rafael Nadal is missing in his resume. Win the U.S. Open and he completes the career Golden Slam.

Rooting for Rafa and hoping he can finally get over the hump in NYIf he does it once, I think he'll win multiple and have a real chance at getting after Fed's record.

Fingers crossed.

One of the scariest scenes in the 2010 US Open.

Belarus player and rising star Victoria Azarenka collapsed and was carried out in a wheelchair after suffering from the heat and humidity during her match against Argentine star Gisela Dulko

Dulko won the match when Azarenka retired

Hopefully, John Isner and Sam Querrey follow suit.

Battle of the bombshells..Wozniacki vs Sharapova.

She's leading 3-2 in the second against Caroline Wozniacki.

This is painful to watch from Maria: serving problems, making unforced errors, not mixing up her game much, getting beat and overpowered on the baseline.

However, she's not going to quit.

Doing well at net though.

5th set for Querrey and Wawrinka. Nadal's side of the draw opened up so much, these guys are the only two that could stop him from reaching the finals. Since they're beating up on each other I'm gonna assume that if Federer gets by Soderling (and Djoker) it will indeed be a Nadal-Federer final.

Federer v. Djokovic for the semi's. Fourth year running, could be an interesting watch as both seem to be in top form again. I still predict Feds to reach the final.

Other side of the draw:

- Nadal v. Verdasco: potentially tricky, but seeing how Verdasco went the distance against Ferrer he could be too physically tired
- Wawrinka v. Youzhny: like I said, I like how Wawrinka is playing at the moment, Peter Lundgren seems to have a good effect on him. Again could be quite physical, Wawrinka has a 4 setter against Murray and 5 setter against Querry in his legs...

Well, Kim Clijsters defeated a Williams sister in the US Open semifinals. Last year, it was Serena. This year, it's Venus.

Venus won the first set, 6-4, but the defending US Open women's singles champion stormed back to win the second set in a tiebreak 7-2 and won the third and decisive set 6-4.

Well, sorry to break it to Caroline Wozniacki fans, but the great Dane will not go back to the finals.

Russian Vera Zvonareva defeats the #1 seed in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3.
