Starts August 31st, but prelims are over. Federer's first seed in Men's singles and Safina's first seed in Women's.

I'm pretty sure that Federer is going to win (I'm rooting for him too), I just hope that someone takes him to five sets.

I'm ambivalent about woman's, although if I had to pick, I'd go for Clijsters. She's the only player with consistency that I've seen.

What are your thoughts?

(If you're not into tennis and are going to post here to flame/bash, don't bother kthx).

I haven't watched tennis in a while (although I do play it) but I'm hopping too Federer will win. Clijsters still plays?

I'll go with another Federer win

Nadal - way out of form due to knee
Djokovic- Just plain sucks this year, lol @ the racket change
Murray- Federers biggest threat, but federer just owned him last week in a masters event.

He had a wilson racket with a relatively small head size before ( a la federer)

The he switched to a HEAD racket which was much bigger, so he could get more money from sponsorship....backfired badly.

I'll definately be watching this.


I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Roddick? He put on a brilliant performance at Wimbledon, and I think the courts of the US Open are among his favorites?

Does that mean I should swap my HEAD racket for Wilson?

Nono, it all depends on your playing style.


I don't know how it all works (what qualities the different rackets have, head sizes, etc). I just know I prefer the small heads with tight, firm strings

To me the most important is the grip. I like thin handles and if its too thin I wrap a thicker grip around it.

Safina is a joke.  The Buffalo Bills of the tennis world.  She'll be in second.

Watch out for del Potro on the men's side

Larger heads allow you to impart more spin; means the difference between a perfect offensive lob and a lob two inches long.

I don't like Petrova, and I'd like to see Oudin oust Serena, so I'm pulling for her, too.

I don't think Oudin has a chance. She's been barely scraping by. Not sure she has the talent or skill, definitely the potential, but not enough experience.

Although if she does win, I hope she spends the money on some tits
