Figured I'd start a thread for those of us who watch all year and wanted a place to talk when non-slam tournaments are going on. Cincinnati Masters is going on currently. Federer-Nadal is happening right now.

This match has had some great, vintage Federer moments; his backhand to end the first set was pure beauty. Loving the intensity both of them are playing with right now.


Also incredibly happy for Isner getting the huge upset over Djokovic today.

I wish he could pull through and win a slam, but he would need to play the best tennis of his life and be lucky in addition to it. We need a slam winner from the States, it's been so long.

Wimbledon this year would've been his or Fish's best chance had they been healthy and in top form, but I agree. A confident Isner going into the US Open could be a very, very good thing. Roddick's win in 2003 showed so much promise, and then Fed made his arrival statement and tennis hasn't been the same. I (melodramatically) mourn Roddick's three Wimbledon finals more often than I should.

I'm also hoping for an all-American Sloane/Serena final in New York. Love the promise we're seeing in Sloane this year.

Sucks that Murray lost today, and last week. I feel like he put so much into Wimbledon that he's just spent for defending his US Open win.

Yeah, Roddick's career, great as it was, is also so sad because had he been 5 years older or 5 years younger he would've had multiple slams. He kind of got shafted coming in when Nadal and Federer did.

Final set now for Fed-Nadal.

DelPo has a huge chance in New York, too. He's had a phenomenal year, has already won it, and I don't think the big four are all that invincible right now like in past years.

Man, Nadal's really running a train on Federer this set. Hopefully he can catch back up and make it competitive.

This went downhill fast. I was really pulling for Federer. He can still do it, but Nadal went to that other level he only has against Federer.

Federer's slowly trying to come back. Don't think it'll be enough in the end though.

Saving four match points is one way to gain the confidence. If he gets this break I may accidentally throw my computer across the room.

Can't deny that statement. Ugh. My lifelong frustration of admiring his game while hating him continues.

Man that was some great tennis in the end. Wish he could've played the whole set like that.

I was beyond shocked he didn't challenge. I could see it was out as the point happened.
