    I can't help but see some similarities between the way Agassi is playing in this tournament and Goran's Wimbledon win in 2001. It just feels like destiny. Agassi beating Ginepri in 5 was great to see.

    Federer is well on top of Hewitt at the moment. He took the first set 6-3 and has already broken Hewitt in the 2nd.

    There is a small hurdle called Federer. He spoiled a Sampras Wimbledon run. And he will be tough to beat.

    Would be great to see Agassi win the final, v fitting way to crown his career. Can't quite see Federer being overcome with sentiment tho.

    Hewitt breaks back. I may not like him, but that was brilliant tennis. Well done Lleyton, I still hope you get your butt whooped though.

    So Federer decides to break Hewitt again.

    What does Lleyton do? Break back.

    Outstanding tennis. One gets the feeling Hewitt must win this set to have a chance. He's played so well, for him to lose it would really hurt.

    If Federer play like he is playing now (against Hewitt) then I think Agassi has 75 % chance of winning the US open.

    Yes Federer is making a lot of unforced errors but give credit to Hewitt, he is not letting Federer dictate play and is taking it right up to the champion. A tie-break looms.

    Did someone flick a switch? Hewitt had 5 set points in this 2nd set, couldn't capitalise. We're in to a tie-breaker and Federer decides to turn it on and wins it 7-0. Utterly dominated Hewitt all of a sudden.

    What a champion!

    Now, two questions? Will he win? and, Will he retire on the spot?

    Man, I'm happy he's done it.
    It would be great if he won it. I definettly think he should retire imediatyl he isnt going to get this far again and it would be a great way to go out like Sampras did 3 years ago

    Wow, Roger just displayed what he is capable of. He was just flying out there. Saves another set point on Heweitt's serve..and there we go, Hewitt wins third set.

    Yeup, really great tie-break game from Roger. He wont have it so easy against Andre though. Andre wont allow anyone to save 5 set points. That said I expect 4th set to finish fast, IMO roger was taking Hewitt lightly and now I can see him hitting really well especially his backhand which was poor in first 2 sets. He is making Hewitt run a lot more now.

    Wins 1st game of 4th set easily.

    And so it begins... Andre vs. Roger. I can't wait. I am a huge fan of Federer, and only really cheer Safin over him but my heart is with Agassi today. One last win would be awesome, let's hope its his destiny.
