Saw Nadal lost, but don't know any more. I find the USOpen website near befuddling to navigate, a virtual mess. Earlier today, I knew that Federer must have won, but it took me many minutes to confirm that.

I wouldn't mind his winning either but for Sharapova. Did you know he played cricket before turning to tennis?

Hewitt played Cricket for fun and also played on the Australian Rules Football before becoming a tennis pro.

Well, now I'm rooting for Henin-Hardenne, which means Sharapova will win... (scream).

Margo........ Leyton is a rabid "Adelaide crows" fan. He and Andrew Mcleod were best mates then had a very public falling out over a DVD taken on a trip to Qld. (and sundry other crap).

Women's game is over. Sharapova beats Henin 6-4 6-4.

Sharapova is the queen of the world at present.

I missed that coronation - was it done concurrently with the one where Paris Hilton was made the empress?

@ossobuco,
Now there was a match..

Novak Djokovic stunned Roger Federer with a 5-7, 6-1, 5-7, 6-2, 7-5 win. He will face Rafael Nadal in the final.

@ossobuco,

the women's final was shockingly lopsided...

@Region Philbis,
I didn't follow it, recovering as I was from just reading the men's semifinal live analysis..
