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.

Was it just me, or did the ringside appearances in the crowd of Angle, Austin and 'Taker get some of the biggest pops of the night? And it was hard to hear at the Hooters I was at, but did the Mandalay Bay crowd BOO Barry Bonds? I {heart} Vegas.
