US Open Update:

  • Nadal looks pretty in pink, while flushing Kevin Anderson and his big serve down the drain at Flushing. Perhaps the most competitive player ever, he seems as dominant now as he ever was, with a more lethal than ever two handed backhand, a dangerous serve, and ridiculous topspin …. not to mention perfectly aligned water bottles, a massive collection of protective on-court rituals and the speed of a hungry cheetah. Without a healthy Djoker and Wawra, it’s no contest for the rest of the field on any surface other than grass.

US Open Men’s Update:

  • Armed with a huge first serve and one of the biggest, heaviest forehands you’ll ever see (when he is in position to hit it), Juan Martin should’ve been written off as long gone when he went down two sets to none, but he escaped a very hairy situation by bearing down with his fine Argentine determination.
  • Rafa uses his powerful groundies to break Alexandr’s Dolgo stick in half;
  • Rublev paints Goffin into his coffin corner of the court;

  • Kvitova turns the tables on Muguruza, winning from the baseline and serving notice that she may well be the one to beat;
