I figure ending Federer's kajillion* match winning streak at the US warrants a new thread rather than hijacking the Serena one. Del Potro won it in five (sports.espn.go.com) after coming back from two sets to one down in what was a very, very good match indeed.

Del Potro started nervous but came on strong and once his forehand got working he really bludgeoned Fed at times. I thought he'd lost his chance when he blew a lead in the fourth, but he came back well.

Roger struggled a bit with his serve throughout and was unusually tempremental at times. No linejudges were threatened though, so yay for that.

Time will tell whether del Potro goes on to be a streaky power hitter who can beat anyone on his day or a genuine force, but last night at least he looked pretty darned awesome.

*Figure based on estimate. May not be a real number.

I still think Sergio will get his - he's still only 28 and did win the Players' Championship this year. Great to see Padraig's unconscious putting throughout the back nine!
