Yes Del Po!! Good win. Sad to see Roddick retire though. Could have had a better career, if he wasn't around during the Federer era. Below is the US Open 2003 final highlights. Roddicks Grand Slam victory







What a classy guy. Everytime i see Del Potro i like him more. It's going to happen again










Hopefully

Edit* Cilic with a double break in the 2nd. Come on Marin!!!!

Sigh. So long, Andy?

Anyone actually watching live? How did Roddick/crowd react after the loss?

Roddick was emotional, got a good reception when they cut to footage during a break from Murray/Cilic.

Cilic by no means guaranteed victory, he's playing superb for the most part but there's every chance his high risk/high reward style might cost him. He nearly threw the first set away via one error strewn game and he was in trouble when serving at 1-0 in the 2nd set. He's played out of his skin so far but Murray has every chance if he can just ride out the momentum and try and not get down and keep believing. Only takes a couple of Cilic errors for a break and that's where Murray needs to play better, because after his first break he got broken straight back and lost the 1st set.

He cried. Del Potro gace him a hug at the net. I didn't see what happened after that

Gets excited when Murray is losing against a guy that isn't one of his favourites.

Murray slowly playing a bit more consistently and forcing the tempo of play a bit. From 1-5 to 5-5 on serve now, crucial for him to hold now and then force Cilic to serve for a tiebreak having been broken in his last two service games.

EDIT: terrific hold there. Cilic looking a little sluggish with some loose shots now. He's played unbelieveable so far but with that style of play there's always going to be moments where he doesn't find the lines, and from there its a matter of how good he is on the big points against the better players. Early on he was playing the big points with a carefree attitude and playing them smart, now he's slowly making more errors whilst Murray is moving better around the court.

Fascinatingly poised.

Murray wins tie-break, 1-5 down to win 7-6. Crucial victory there since now Cilic has to come out and try and regain the momentum, which should see him potentially hit more errors the more he goes for the win. Murray still having a couple of rash moments but slowly but surely seems to be growing in confidence.

Great comeback from Andy. He was almost back to being Scottish for a second but he showed some real character there. How many players would've just given in 5-1 down there? Also, great to see Pippa Middleton there showing her support too.

Just watched the video of Roddick's retirement. Del Potro is a really classy guy.
