Just won the match after a mental fourth set. Looked in a great deal of trouble in terms of fitness. Hopefully nothing too serious

Federer comes from 2 sets down, saves 2 MP's to beat Monfils and advance to the semis. Deserves the tournament now IMO given how close he came at Wimbledon

Federer 2 sets down again, this time to Cilic in the semi final.

The winner will play Nishikori who beat Djorkovic in the other semi.

When was the last time none of Federer, Djokovic, Nadal or Murray reached a grand slam final? Off the too of my head I would 2003 or 2004?

Good quiz question. I reckon Safin / Heywitt in Australia 2005. :computer:

If you did that without googling that's impressive! Think you may be right.
Of course I didn't. lol Too much time on my hands which is particularly sad for a Saturday night. :(

Federer looked a broken man at the end. Looked like he knew that was possibly his last chance to win another grand slam title.

Agree, feel bad for him but was decidedly flat today.

lol what. He got to a semi final.
You can't deny that's an opportunity missed though? To beat Cilic and Nishikori to win his first Grand Slam on over two years?

I thought his reaction said just that.

Whilst the headline news goes to Serena Williams, I think it is worth noting that our own Andy Lapthorne has won the quad singles title at Flushing Meadow.

You dont need to count Murray !!

The last final without one of the big 3 is Aussie 05

Murray only ever played one of the Big 3 in all his finals !!!

He beat Novak twice in finals (Us and Wimbledon) and lost to Federer and Novak in his other 4 slam finals. :shrug:

you are missing his point. He says for the impressive stat about dominance of the big players you need not even count Murray as whenever he made a final he was playing one of the other big three players.

The post stated he only met one of the 'big 3', when in fact he met two, the third one, Nadal, he lost in semis to in Paris.

Federer, Nadal and Djokavic have won the majority of slams over the past 10 years or so, with a few exceptions when Murray, Del Potro, Wawrinka and Safin have won one or two titles.

No. He is saying he only ever played against one of the big three. ie. he never played someone not in the top 3.

sometimes sorry is the hardest word to say! :fishing:

Tuned into the men's final, and it's as good as over.

Cilic 2 sets up (6-3, 6-3) and leads 4-1 in the third.

Cilic wins the Mens US Open 2014. Most unexpected Grand Slam victory since Gaudio at Roland Garros 2004...

Apparently first time since 1998 that there has been 8 different winners of the 4 grand slams across the men's and women's game.

I think I've fallen into a time machine without knowing it.
