At least the quick-time labours have allowed the Fed Express to spend abundant time with his kids, regularly showing up at a favourite local restaurant, sightseeing and taking in a Broadway musical, Finding Neverland. And through the first week of this Grand Slam – which the Swiss Maestro won five years consecutively between 2004 and 2008 – he’s been utterly sublime.
Federer will play Richard Gasquet in the quarterfinals. No. 2 Simona Halep, the 2014 French Open runnerup, beat qualifier Shelby Rogers of the United States 6-2, 6-3 to open the night session.
Angelique is a great fighter but I enjoy the hustle and getting winners and chasing down every ball, said two-time Australian Open champion Azarenka.
Roger Federer keeps piling up the records.
For Federer, service success includes a cerebral component. In truth, because there’s nothing new under the sun, this isn’t exactly virgin territory. He kept charging the serve and kept chipping it away.
“The pace on his second serve especially is unreal”.
“I don’t know. You have to ask Venus that question”, Price said. “Sometimes against John maybe that’s not a bad play just because he’s very long, and if he picks the right side he has long arms so with easy contact he generates a lot of power”. He was too good, I would have loved to see my chances against any other player. “I served well when I had to”. It made for some brilliantly played points and Isner got a nice ovation as he left the court. They were ridiculous. “He laughed, I laughed, (coach) Severin (Luthi) laughed”, Federer recounted. “Severin laughed”.
SEASONED VETERANS: With seven of the top 10 seeds already gone from the women’s draw, some veterans who have fallen out of the top 10 could be in position to take advantage and use their experience to make deep runs. “And it still worked”.
Stan Wawrinka, of Switzerland, signs autographs after defeating Ruben Bemelmans, of Belgium, in straight sets in the third round at the U.S. Open tennis tournament on Saturday, September 5, 2015, in New York. And he’s charmed with it. However, energy alone isn’t going to beat Roger. “I’m going to go out there and roll the dice”. Thus far, nobody else has tried mimicking the maneuver.
While Serena has earned the victory in six of their past matches with money and ranking points at stake, it wasn’t always so. At 8 p.m. ET coverage will shift to ESPN2. That seemed to cement the Spaniard’s stunning decline this season. Tiebreakers are to the huge-serving Isner what ponds are to frogs: a natural habitat. His despondency was evident as Nadal all but staggered through the players’ tunnel afterwards, a poignantly sad sight. “I’m aware of the test ahead”. Some day, it probably will be me.
This will be the sixteenth time that any Grand Slam will not feature an American player with John Isner and Donald Young losing on Monday. Against such an explosive server, the SABR will likely be sheathed. “I really like the way he played in Wimbledon, and also now here. Clearly I will think about it but I don’t think that’s going to be the turning point of the match“.
