Hey, to be serious and not make light of the situation for the moment: a couple of places have said Serena used the word "gook" somewhere in her rant (which of course a mic didn't pick up). Anyone else catch this from lip-reading or not true?

Wow, what a story, with Clijsters winning after all this time! And outweighing her competitor by what I estimate to be 40 pounds -- incredible!!

Seriously, those thighs are RE-DIC-U-LUS!!

Congrats Juan Martin, the game kind of sucked, but he got the job done...

That was more Federer beating himself then anything Del Potro did. RF's first serve % was something like 45%.

Del Potro is the real deal.

Anyone who lives in DC and follows tennis should know. He won the Legg Mason the last two years and this year beat Roddick in a great final (just about a month ago).

Del Potro deserves a lot of credit. Del Potro had about 40 winners just on the forehand and his some key shots.

Did Federer play his best game? No. BUt Del Potro didn't flinch/wilt in his first grand slam final against a guy who hadn't lost at the US Open since 2004!!!!!

A lot of players - under that pressure- would not have been able to close Roger out.

Is there anything Argentinian you DON'T worship at an unhealthy level?

I'll give you that, but I still think Federer's implosion had more to do with this then Del Potro's intestinal fortitude. But Del Potro had a great tournament, and I saw that DC title you alluded to earlier this year against Roddick. Definitely an exciting player who hasn't reached his prime yet. Here's hoping he doesn't go the way of Safin.

Man its  unreal.. there is a tennis thread.. I chime in that he played well and deserved to win (not too crazy a thing to say!) not once mentioning he is Argentine and some asshole chimes in about worshipping Argentines unhealthily.

Pampita rocks by the way.. I do worship her.
