Gutter Vande is being smoked by Keys.....LOL

 

Maddy took away CooCoo's ability to breathe yesterday.  She did not let up.  Maddy has been playing some excellent watchable tennis lately.  

 

Never thought I'd see an all American final in a Slam without the names, Williams & Agassi/Sampras.  

 

I think Sloane will take it.

This is an interesting article excoriating (deservedly so) Sharapova over her remarks about Serena in her book Unstoppable.

 

Maria Sharapova’s Vile, Racially Tinged Treatment of Serena Williams

 

 

I read that earlier and thought it was on point.  Waiting on the ass licking Commies to step up!

They won't be doing that as the consider Sharapova to be their prized cash cow.

Kevin Anderson...you haven't won yet...the excessive celebration was a bit much....LOL.  Well at least he acknowledged it in his interview with ESPN.

Once Fed was knocked out, I considered skipping the Final...now I'm almost positive I'll skip it.

I wanted someone new to win it. Like Thiem, Grigor or Juan Martin....seeing Nadal win the US Open is pure zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. He hasn't even had a great summer and his matches in the US Open have been lackluster.

Except for DelPo, these guys are rarely stepping it up, so I don't blame Federer or Nadal for taking trophies. Andy and Novak are not even here as obstacles.

 

The women, on the other hand, are going for the jugular, regardless of whether Serena is around or not because when you think about it, Serena didn't win the U.S. Open last year or the year before, right?

 

I was hoping for someone brand new on the ATP side but it didn't happen and I'm not going to blame Nadal for seizing his opportunities.:lol:  Fans need to have a talk with the other players in the ATP if they want new winners.

I hope the US women keep it up in Australia in January. I was very impressed.

Lawd I'd love to talk to Thiem and Grigor....I don't know how much tennis talk we'd have though....LOL....as Sophia would say...."You'd have me peeling off the ceiling.....LOL.  Speaking of Thiem.....I noticed he wasn't wearing his thongs at the US Open but was wearing long underwear...hmmmm.....

Looks like Sloane can't do anything wrong.

Sloane was a class act on the handshake. You could tell she was telling Madison that one day she'd win one. I picked Sloane in the ESPN poll. The majority had Madison but she had played too well in the semis and I didn't think she could play that well again. She didn't play well at all. She went off course and even tried going in to the net to volley. That's not her game.

Not going to sugarcoat it, that was a boring final and I didn't even see the entire match. Well, Sloane has a major title before Wozniacki, Aga and all them other gals.  Congrats to her and her team. *Kanye shrug*
