    Pretty impressive performance by Federer. He just blew Tsonga off the court. You cant help but just laugh when watching Federer. The shots he makes, the balls alot of players cant get to he not only gets to them but hits crazy winners. Its just incredible.

    Murray has been playing great but can he beat Federer in a best of 5? Im hoping Federer pulls it out but this should be a competitive match and Murray seems game to face Federer.

    Justine and Serena should be awesome tonight as wel looking forward to it. Both finals will be high quality tennis for sure.

    Tsonga was defeated before the first point... he came out nervous which is something you just can't do if you want a chance at beating Federer. Just going through the motions for the rest of the match... wasn't pretty.

    I'll be pulling for Federer and Henin in the finals. Both are great finals

    It doesn't help that Federer played damn near perfect tennis. You can't beat him when he plays that good.

    This is a horrible game. Mistake after mistake by both players... why did I wake up in the middle of the night for this shit? Ugly tennis. Still hope Henin wins but neither really deserve it after tonight

    EDIT: Finally, a decent fuckin rally. Took long enough
    EDIT 2: Serena wins, hooray its over, i'm going back to sleep

    I thought it was a good match but Henin had so many chances to really take the first set and didnt do it thats what cost her. It seemed the entire match she would always start every return game love-30. If she would have went to the bh slice more than the topsin bh hitting errors she had a great chance in that first set. Was fun to watch though especially when Henin went on that huge run at the end of the second set.. Cant wait for Federer/Murray.

    Federer in straights! Nice job by Federer going down in the third and coming back and winning in the tie-break. Murray finally started playing better in the third but Federer still won the set and the tournament. Not many people can hang with Federer in a best of five and win let alone in a major final. Makes what Del Potro did seem even more amazing.

    Great win by Federer and he will once again be a major contender for the French even more so now than usual i think since he doesnt NEED to win it and ofcourse since Rafa still has injury concerns. I really hope Rafa can get healthy. Hes really the only guy who can challenge Roger in a major.

    Tsonga gave up the fight there, lost to some unseeded Ukranian guy. Murray with another impressive win.

    God I love tennis

    Tsonga's back went out again. Hope it's not serious and it was just dead. Sucks to see him go out, I wanted to see him vs Soderling.

    Loving the way Andy is playing at the moment.

    Isner vs Cilic should be a good match now.

    Isner/Cilic was a great match I was looking forward to that one. Isner really had a shot to close it out in the 4th set breaker but he played terrible, Worst tie-break I have ever seen him play. Cilic really turned it on after the 3rd he was just serving too well. Isner had no looks at all until Cilic's last service game of the match but couldnt close it out.

    Also was surprising to see Stosur go out the way she did. You dont see near the quality of the mens game but the womens side is always wide open. Most of the time its the player who can deal with the highs and lows better that moves on.

    Roddick/Wawrinka should be fun to watch later today. Wawrinka looked great against Monfils. Too bad that match is last match in the night session sucks for us lol

    Almagro/Djokovic could turn out to be interesting too.

    Based on how they have played especially yesterday, tomorrow's Djokovic/Berdych match is going to be awesome. Really cant wait to watch that one. Berdych is on fire and Djokovic has really cleaned his game up playing as good as he ever has, should be something special.

    I was flicking back in forth between the Dolgopolov/Soderling match. What a fucking match played by the kid. He beat Tsonga and absolutely disposed of Soderling. Wonderful.

    When we ran our TopSpin show from Tennis Canada, Raonic was one of our main "friends of the show", we had him on I think 4 different times, and all ended up knowing him pretty well.

    Happy to report that if this is a coming out party and he becomes a player in the sport, I cannot even begin to tell you that it can't happen to a better person. I know that sounds like hyperbole because everyone says that all the time, but it really is true in this case...he is genuinely one of the nicest kids you'd ever meet in your life, and absurdly mature for his age, asking him about the future of tennis in Canada and his role in it and everything and the answers he'd respond with showed maturity few athletes of any age display.

    He's a great kid, everyone should root for him.

    Ferrer has played out of this world good in the past 3 sets. Unreal. He simply isn't making ONE mistake. Not one. Raonic has a great career ahead of him, he playes awesome big man tennis. His volleying skills are just awesome for a man his size. He should be around for a long while. Seemed a really well spoken guy and self confident. Both are just huge when you are trying to make it big time in the world of Tennis, IMO.

    Berdych/Djokovic is gonna be a battle tonight! Federer/Wawrinka might go 5 sets. Stan has to be on his game again. Will be interesting to see how Schiavone has recovered from her last match.
