First off a few thoughts on the Djokovic versus Federer Semi Final.The scoreline to me actually flattered Federer.66 unforced errors by anyone at this stage of a tournament is going to assure you to be on the losing end.I am amazed that Fed had 2 match points and Djokovic could only win the match in 5 sets. Fed has played every US OPEN final for the past 6 years and all good things must come to an end.This is what happens to great champions with so many wins under the belt how hungry are you really when the pressure is on..and to me Federer gave the impression that he's been here done that and its just another match.Well maybe not just another match but for example , look at his body language and the look in ones eye compared to Nadal and its No wonder I have selected Nadal to beat Djokovic in this years Final.The draw has worked out to be very kind to Rafa and he has had the easiest run to the final for sure.Aided by his new found extra service power and his will and determination plus his great athletic ability Nadal will beat the Djoker.Nadal will have a chance of joining some of the greats of all time who have won all four majors.If he wins he has the chance to win 4 successive grandslam singles titles .Some will say that is a grandslam but I still believe that  a Grandslam is winning all four majors in a Calender  year.Certainly the Djoker has the game but his will against Nadal's will is not as strong.Nadal has his best chance to win the one title that has eluded him.

Just a congratulation's To Kim Clijsters for retaining her US OPEN title defeating Vera Zvonareva in a one sided Ladies Final.Kim along with Venus Williams were the two class players of the field and its no surprise to me that the winner of this semi went on to the title.

Finally the USA gets some glory with the two boys Jack Sock and  Denis Kudla reaching the boys final.Two Russian will battle out the girls event. 

Australia should be asking questions on their current juniors who are failing to cut it against the best in the World.New Zealand and Aussie players of the future are now playing tournaments in Australia and looking at the first tournament... there is nothing special going on there.
