I always believed, honest


Very proud of Andy, and ofc the whole support team. 76 years, worth the wait. Hopefully this is just the first.

The most important thing is, ROGER THAT is still No. 1, and will probably stay there for awhile.

I would say it was better than Murrays. Del Potro beat Nadal and Federer back to back (and they were the 2 best in the world at that time)

Murray may match the level of Djokovic in the future, but absolutely no way is he going to reach Nadal

Speaking of Rafa I can't wait to see him back now. I'm not really a fan of his, but the tour doesn't feel the same without him.

Tsonga is struggling with getting a place for the tour finals. He's 7th atm, and 8th this year. He's slipping down, Needs to improve!! Del Po is climbing back up though, 6th best this year. But Shvedova has made a huge climb in the rankings since last year. Came into 2012 ranked 206, and now is 33rd!! Comeback player of the year surely.

Del Potro's win was far better for sure. He beat the best two in the world back-to-back, beating Federer who'd won the tournament five times in a row in his first & still his only grand slam final, coming from 2-1 down to win, something only Nadal & Djokovic have done. He came through that tournament not considered a favourite and played some unbelievable tennis to beat the best at close to his best. It was an amazing effort. Last night's match didn't have either Murray or Djokovic anywhere near their best.

Murray did well to come back after Djokovic's resurgence but DelPo's win far exceeds what Murray did.

Ratings for my favourite player's US Open performances.

Tsonga: 1/10
1 word, Shit. 2nd round isn't acceptable, and he was crap in doing so. Disapointing US Open for Jo. the 1 is for getting into the 2nd round.

Del Potro: 6/10
He did what was expected of him really. Came up against Nole in the Quarter Finals, and couldn't do anything because Nole was playing great in that match. Wasn't too convincing leading up to the quarter finals, but he did what was expected of him. Bit unlucky with the draw really.

Yaroslava Shvedova: 4/10
I'd say below average tournament for Slava. I had a feeling that she wouldn't do all that well, and i was unfortunately right. First round against Vania was a routine win, but the 2nd round was a choke job. She should have really beaten Vinci after serving for the match and having match points. The performances weren't all that bad really, but She didn't play up to the level she is capable of.

Watched last night, was so proud of Andy Murray. It was well worth the wait. It would have been nice if he'd have won the slam with a straight forwards victory, but winning the five set epic he did was just perfect. It made it all that much better because of how hard he had to work to win that match.

I thought the match was brillaint. The defensive play by both was off the charts to be honest, so it's not surprising there weren't a ton of outright winners in the match. Both were just getting everything back. I thought the tennis was phenominal. I would rank it ahead of Del Potros title win just because of the wait for Murray. It's been a LONG time coming, and this feel like a major breakthrough. He's been through four finals and he's finally come into his own and won the big one. It was a joy to watch.

It showed the difference between the Murray last year and the Murray this year. I was worried when Djokovic came back in the third and fourth but it showed terrific mental strength to win the fifth set like he did. It was phenominal. The Murray of old would have slumped under the pressure of the first set tiebreak, he would have certainly gave up the second set after getting broken back (twice) and he would have for sure lost the fifth set. This shows how much he's grown.

Right now, Murray is the best player in the world. He's had such a brilliant couple of months. Making the Wimbledon final, coming back four weeks later and beating the greatest of all time on his favorite surface in straight sets to win the Olympics, then coming and becoming a slam champion for the first time. Love that he's the first one to every win the Olympics and go on to win the US Open too.

It's very exciting for Murray. The weight has been lifted, he'll feel so so confident in slams now, and won't be tentative in slam finals now he's won one. This could be the start of a really good Murray run and I'm confident he could become world number one in the next one or two years. Great final, great result, great new slam champion.

I agree. Anyone who says otherwise is either deluded, a proper Murray fanboy, or a Federer fan.

This has got me thinking. What are the greatest grand slam final performances of all time?

This one came to mind for me. 2nd serve ace to win the match



Post any more

I'm talking about current not all time in terms of achievements. He's better than Djokovic and Federer right now without any doubt for me. Obviously can't compare with Nadal as he hasn't faced him recently and he's been out injured. Nadal won't return on the same level as he left. You don't spend this long out with a knee injury and come back like nothing happened. Hampers his game as well as he won't be as able to grind out points if the knee isn't the same so he'll have to adjust to shorten his rallies.

French next year should still be his. Murray will one of the hard court slams. Probably Djokovic for the other. Wimbledon is a toss up right now between the top 4. Can't see the others challenging for a Slam next year unless circumstances greatly favour them. Ferrer could be a good dark horse for the French though perhaps.

Hope Serena keeps mentally in check for 2013 so she can dominate the Slams next year in the same fashion.
