Novak retired hurt in the fourth round after being down 4-6 5-7 1-2 against Stan Wawrinka. Apparently a shoulder injury flared up.

Then Roger lost his quarterfinal match 6-3 4-6 6-3 4-6 2-6 against Grigor Dimitrov.

Rafa just survived a testing quarterfinal match, yet won it in straight sets. He let a 4-0 lead in set 1 become 4-4, and a 5-1 lead in set 2 become 5-5. He lifted when he needed to though.

Serena is looking good (surprise surprise), yet I still fancy her to lose in the final if she makes it.

Medvedev (5) v Dimitrov
Berrettini (24) v Nadal (2)

Svitolina (5) v Williams (8)
Bencic (13) v Andreescu (15)

SOOOOOOOOO GLAD Serena lost. Her on the court drama is horrible to watch.

The US looked horrible by barely cheering the girl who beat her. Poor sports.

I'm not surprised at all. I said after Wimbledon that I thought Serena will never win another GS, and it seems like a fair prediction now. There is no fear factor anymore. 0-4 in GS finals since giving birth (winning 0 sets), and 2-6 since 2016.

The crowd have been terrible this GS, and that's not me being biased against yanks. I saw several matches where the crows were booing, cheering faults and double faults, and intimidating the opposition. Funnily enough, they intimidated Andreescu against Townsend, then intimidated Bencic against Andreescu, then intimidated Andreescu again against Serena.

I wonder whether Andreescu will fall flat like every other GS Champion. She's 8-0 against top 10 opponents this year and has lost 4 matches only, and hasn't lost since March (injury included). But Kerber is pathetic now, Muguruza choked to a 1st round defeat, Osaka has lost form, Halep choked to a 2nd round defeat to a qualifier, and lets not even mention Ostapenko please...

Nadal won. #19. If he can win the Australian, he could, fittingly, eclipse Federer at the French.

That was not convincing at all by Rafa. I was shocked to see him let a 2-set and a break lead slip. In the 5th set he was down 0-1 15-40, and could've easily been broken there. Then he couldn't serve for the championship, and nearly couldn't do it again.

That said, Medvedev caused most of that drop off from Rafa. The US Open was his 4th consecutive final at a tournament, and he kept that good form going into the final. What a great effort from him. I think he will be a Grand Slam winner one day, and perhaps sooner than we all think.

And in case you're reading Dennis, Rafa won 7-5 6-3 5-7 4-6 6-4.

The big three is getting older. Someone has to break through at some point.
