There are three matches we’re really looking forward to today, and they’re all potential-upsets. We’ll give you our favorites:
Nikolay Davydenko v. Richard Gasquet, early afternoon, Grandstand: There was once a time (three years ago) when Roger Federer called the handsome Frenchman Gasquet a promising young talent. Then injuries, questionable passion for the game and Read More
After days and days of speculation, Serena Williams has finally decided to explain what happened with her injured foot. Feet, actually!
Serena spoke to USA Today and said “she had surgery to repair a lacerated tendon on the top of her right foot…after receiving 12 stitches in one foot and six in another Read More
“Is lot of windy always” — Rafael Nadal, 8.28.2010
Yesterday’s video wasn’t a total diaster, so I made you another one! Today’s topics (in just two minutes): My really nice seat; Ana Ivanovic; stiff sea breezes. Read More
Andy Roddick threw a tantrum. He did it in the third set after he had been–correctly–called for a foot fault. He asked the lineswoman if it was his right or left foot that hit the line. The lineswoman said it was his right. In fact, it was his left, so Roddick decided to make a Read More
In case you didn’t know (and really, how couldn’t you?) today was Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Day at the Open! But that’s not all: Tonight is New York Times Night!

Wait one second: What’s this? Is the Power Serb back? Ana Ivanovic played on Ashe today and defeated Australian Open semifinalist Jie Zheng in straight sets. Ivanovic is going to the third round. This also means this is the farthest she’s gotten at a U.S. Open since 2007 (she was bounced in the second round Read More
We’ve got total revolt at the Open these days. Without the J-Block at full force–poor James Blake had to play on Court tk yesterday in his latter-days–there’s no loud American crowd crew to handle the cheering for our underdog American men!
We thought we’d do give it to the Samurai, the cheering squad for Read More
The heat has taken its first victim: Victoria Azarenka just collapsed on the Grandstand, and was removed from the court in a wheelchair. She was conscious when she left. Though the Grandstand is usually one of the courts that is usually shaded, the court is completely exposed to sun right now.
