    Well, she was playing Venus, there aren't many out there that look worse than Venus.

        Berdych has always had top-ten talent, and he's playing the best tennnis of his life, but Nadal is on another level altogether. I'd be surprised if it's that close.

        Serena wins the first set against Zvonareva, 6-3.

          3 and 2 in a little over an hour. I guess she did!

              For the seven people who get The Tennis Channel, they are showing a great US Open match just about every night for the next few weeks. Right now Agassi has taken the second set from Federer in the 2005 US Open final. I've read the Agassi biography, and even accounting for hyperbole, it's amazing what he did in 2005. He had a great draw no doubt, but if you watch the match you'll see that Federer was noticeably much better than he is today, and still an aging Agassi hung in there with him through three sets.

                Also, the Henin-Capriati match shown on Monday is one of the best 3-4 women's matches I've ever seen. Capriati was two points away from the match 8-10 times, Henin fought them all off and never faced match point, and then she had to come back the next night and beat Clijsters in the finals, which she did. Really great women's tennis.

                    Serena withdraws from the US Open. That really opens up the draw.

                      The US Open is underway. Melanie Oudin, last year's big story who has been struggling this season, won her first-round match against a qualifier. She could run into the No. 29 seed in the next round.

                        There's obviously bias here, but I think this is the greatest tournament in the world. The atmosphere and the night matches make for some great moments.

                        It's pretty cool that Timmy Smyczek from Wisconsin made it into the main draw. He's the first--and at this point, probably the only--player I've played a real match against that made the main draw of the Open.

                          Seriously? Wow. I watched some of his match yesterday online and he hung in there pretty well throughout. I think he had a set point in the third, IIRC. I looked him up and it listed Milwaukee as his current residence. So he lives and trains out of Wisconsin?

                          EDIT: BTW, when/where did you play Smyczek?

                            There's no reason four American men can't make it to the Round of 16 this year. Roddick got a dream draw considering he fell out of the top eight, and Querrey, Fish, and Isner (if healthy) should be favored in their first three matches. This might/should be the best US Open for American men since 2005.

                              Geez, Roddick really proves himself to be a poor man's Connors. He lights into a lineswoman who correctly called him for a foot fault, getting the night crowd strongly into the match, but still manages to lose the set.

                                Roddick gets a sweatheart draw and blows it. He played right into Tipsarevic's hands.

                                Fish, Querrey, and Isner still could make the round of 16.
