LOL I like him and agree that he is cute and funny, but I wouldn't call him "hot". Now Rafa and Blake are HOT HOT HOT.

Re: "Top 10" Best things of the US Open

What about Justine's Seventh Heaven? That rates in the top 10 for me.

Re: "Top 10" Best things of the US Open

1) Serena's "lucky shots" interview
2) The amazing 27-shot rally with rapid fire exchanges at the net between Justine and Venus at 5-5 in the 1st set of their semifinal.
3)Venus - Jelena and Justine - Venus matches
4) "Black Sunday" (Sharapova, Petrova, Hingis, Vaidisova, Patty and Kirilenko all losing on the same day)
5) Novak Djokovic impersonating Sharapova and Nadal
6) Tatiana Golovin got "rolled over" by Asaha Rolle.
7) "Match of the Year" - Djokovic vs Radek
8) Mattek's leopard outfit
9) Roddick and Justin Gimelstop's "moment of insanity" during their match (What I understand is that Gimelstop was about to serve where he saw navy personels walking into the stadium. He stopped serving, and the umpire warned him for time wasting - he argued that he was "respecting them for their service to America". He then continued his serve... and ended up with a DF. Roddick shouted to him that his "waiting" was all for nothing, and Gimelstop replied back [something]).
10) ... and of course, Justine winning her "lucky" 7th slam

Australian Open 2010 Final Result:-
Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

Re: "Top 10" Best things of the US Open

I agree with a lot of what people are saying, but I would also add the Blake-Santoro match. I love Santoro, not such a big fan of Blake, but it was a brilliant match, great contrast of styles, and it's always good to see a player win their first 5-setter, particularly since it has been something of a chip on Blake's shoulder. Tennis was the winner

Re: "Top 10" Best things of the US Open

I'm not enjoying all the Nole hating on the WTA boards, it makes me upset! I didn't actually get to watch any play, only listen, But I very much enjoyed Jelena's press interviews. Justine beating both Williams' was awesome too.

And from a ATP point of view, Haas beating Blake was fab, even though I love them both.
