    Fed was unbelievable today. Took the ball early all match.

    Fed racks up another title. This is quite the run he's on.

    Its a huge run, and amazingly, in this time Rafa has not won a title (hasn't won a title since the French). Obviously Rafa has made lots of finals but still, that is a very big drought from Rafa

    Wonder how Fed will go in Miami this week (he's played a lot of tennis lately - Rotterdam, Dubai and Indian Wells).

    Yeah, Federer has won his last 6 finals, and actually 11 of his past 14 finals dating back to Cincinnati in 2010, whereas Nadal has lost 9 of his past 12 finals dating back to the 2010 World Tour Finals. It just goes to show what a barrier Nadal and Djokovic have been from Federer racking up Margaret Court like Grand Slam numbers, and I guess it also shows that the hard courts while never Nadal's best surface are where he's started to slow down.

    Ranking points after US Open (so with 3 slams removed)

    1.Federer 6035, 2 Murray 3225, 3.Djokovic 3100, 4.Ferrer 2945, 5.Tsonga 2665, 6.Nadal 2520.

    Even if RF just makes 3 SFs he's in pretty good shape to be #1 at this rate...

    Clay court season will probably change that though.

    Yeah....I just can't see Novak picking up as many points this season. Think 11k might be enough to be #1 after US Open.

    Would be rather amusing to have Federer as slamless #1

    Every few years lately Fed will throw in a random loss to Roddick.

    It was a pretty entertaining game.

    It all boiled down to Federer not being able to break Roddick at 0-40 in the second game of the third set. After that, Roddick hit some booming forehands to break Federer in the next game. Federer's body language was poor after that. He was angry over some call a linesman made. It was a neat moment for Roddick.

    I dunno about that. It was only his third loss to Roddick and the first time Roddick had won a set off him since Wimbledon 2009.

    For some reason I thought his loss to A-Rod in Miami before this year was 2010 or something. Not 2008.

    A-Rod follows his stellar effort vs. Fed by losing to Juan Monaco in straight sets the next day, including getting bagelled in the second set
