US Open in progress with couple of very interesting high class tennis on the men side where top ranking women are just cruising without any difficulty Justine Henin is already in fourth round, Maria Sharapova, Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic will play their third round matches and hopefully advance to fourth round easily.
The man interesting match was last night between James Blake and Fabrice Santoro lasted for more then three hours goes to fifth set. This is the first James Blake five set win. The more interesting match was today were Novak Djokovic and Radek Stepanek played very high class entertaining tennis for 4 hour and 44 minutes. The fans enjoyed the match as both these players are very likable funny guys which give tennis fans to laugh and enjoy. This was the most interesting match of US Open so far with Novak Djokovic wining in fifth set tie breaker. Djokovic and Stepanek hug each other at the end of the match shake hands couple of times. Djokovic congratulated Stepanek for great tennis.
The news about Rafael Nadal is that he had some kind of laser surgery on his knees before his first match and he really did not look fit at all during that match. Nadal is practicing and is determined to play his second round match tonight against Tipservevic who also had the similar kind of injury. Nadal if win his second round match than he can go ahead with the tournament with taking pain killers because Richard Gasquet pulled out of tournament due to viral infection, Acasuso yesterday have to retire during his match with Roddick due to injury. This was kind of lucky break for Roddick because Acasuso had the first set and he was playing great tennis till the middle of second set when he start limping.
There are some good American tennis players made break through John Isner, Donald Young. Sam Querrey is other very talented young player but he is not living up to his talents. John Isner has become very popular with wining two rounds against good tennis players and he sure deserve those wins. John Isner will will my all time favorite and everybody’s favorite most talented tennis player in history Roger Federer tomorrow. The tennis gurus like John McEnroe has very high expectations that John Isner will defeat Roger Federer. John Isner is 6′ 9″ one inch shorter than Ivo Karlovic with huge serve and John McEnroe believe that his serve will make him win match against Roger Federer. John McEnroe is right but he has ignored very important factor that John Isner can’t cover the court quickly, he is not that agile and fast which Roger Federer will use to win points and the match. Roger Federer did not have any difficulty defeating Ivo Karlovic who also has huge serve and one inch taller than John Isner. I think Roger Federer will win in straight sets against John Isner tomorrow.
