Well,a disappointing final for Raonic, but congrats to him for doing so well. He just couldn't challenge Murray today.

Is anyone watching the US Open?


Andy Murray is out!

Beaten by this guy Kei Nishikori.

Sixth seed Nishikori goes on to face Juan Martin del Potro or Stan Wawrinka.

Missed more of Wimbledon than I would have liked this year, but I did catch the Federer annihilation in the Finals......and this....very cool.

Is Federer the goat or what? His competition wasn't all that great for about the first ten years he racked up a lot of his victories. Andy Roddick was his toughest competitor.
I realize you can only beat whoever they put in front of you, but once Nadal and Djokovic came along Federer wasn't quite as impressive. Don't get me wrong I am a fan of his.
