Re: The US Open starts soon...

Thanks Snolly. Looks like I'm making the trek tomorrow now. This weather for Murray/Berdych is a real bummer. Makes watching painful. I feel really bad for them both considering how big a match this is in both of their careers. Murray has much more an advantage. His game has so much more variety he can adapt better. Still this sucks.

Re: The US Open starts soon...

Enjoy the tennis MIKE, hopefully the weather improves for both you and the players....Andy has got the Berd covered in this one now.

And congrats on hitting 50 posts too mate, I'm sure your invitation to join Yoda won't be too far away. smile

Re: The US Open starts soon...

Thanks. I'm excited for both. big_smile   Could Berdych come back yet?

Re: The US Open starts soon...

I hope not because not only have I picked Andy in here but also in our other Fantasy comp in FTT, I don't have Berdych on my team in Vader so I'm definitely rooting for Andy to finish this.

Re: The US Open starts soon...

Yeah I didn't pick him either. He's starting to look much stronger. Murray needs to keep his head on and take advantage when he can.

Re: The US Open starts soon...

Cant say I have ever really taken Berdych that seriously.... Is this a flash in the pan or perhaps someone we need to consider for next years grand Slams??? The jury is out for me at this stage...

Re: The US Open starts soon...

The 6-2, 6-1 sets against Murray lead me to believe it was a mere flash of brilliance. He's worth picking for your teams, but too risky to put down as a finalist

Re: The US Open starts soon...

Well done to Serena, a well fought match, which I guess is what we would expect. Looking forward to the mens final, could quite easily go the 5 sets, still think Novak will win. Lets hope for a long hard fought match.

Re: The US Open starts soon...

I hope Murray wins but I think Noveak will hold the trophy at the end. It's going to be a close one I guess!

Re: The US Open starts soon...

What an amazing women's final match. The place was electric!! A lot more Vika fans than I thought so that was nice. I've been waiting years for a final like that.

Today's match should be a great one. I hope it's up to the level of AO but I'm picking Novak in 4.

Re: The US Open starts soon...

Yeah I would concur with you on that Mike, Novak in four for me too I think.....but you never know the Scot could surprise and win his first GS Title, he would need to be on and Novak slightly off though I feel.

Re: The US Open starts soon...

Well a five setter with a result we probably didn't expect. Well deserved win in an epic battle. Well done Andy for your first Grand Slam win. One he wont forget, and I doubt many of us wont forget either. Both Mens and Womens finals were classic matches and probably the most enjoyable tournament to watch for a few years.

Re: The US Open starts soon...

Definitely agree with you Snolly. What a great end to the tourney. Great matches. Congrats to Murray. It was the perfect storm for him with Fed going out early and Rafa pulling out.  If he didn't do it here I don't know when he would have gotten that first slam. Nole really died towards the end of that match. Must be disappointing after the rediculous highs of last year. That being said I'm glad this tourney's over  from a team perspective. It was by far my worst outing.

Re: The US Open starts soon...

Yep, me too [for my worst GSFT competition].. though I'm happy Murray won this time.

It's great to have you in the Yoda Cup Mike smile
