2009 US Open

One of the strangest grand slams I have ever witnessed....upset after upset after upset.
Well, first and foremost, the Roddick upset was the biggest shocker. After coming off one of the best performances of his life at the Wimbledon, Andy fell to unseeded (55th) ranked 6' 9'' American behemoth, John Isner. Looks like in the battle for muscle - Isner prevailed. I suspect Roddick became a little overconfident, and even though he had more winners and fewer unforced errors than Isner, Roddick chocked during the tiebreakers. Moral of the story: Don't got the mental game, you are a lost cause. This can also apply to Dinara Safina who has the same problem as her brother.

Another notable upset was the Clijsters over V. Williams. Clijsters has been off the tour for a couple years raising a family, and she is already back in tip top shape pretty much demolishing Venus Williams (save the second set, lulz). Both women are known for their strength but Clijsters seemed to have the upper hand throughout the match.

Oudin is looking strong but currently losing against Nadia Petrova. I'm hoping Verdasco can knock out Isner just because I expected Roddick to go far in the Open this year, sigh. Plus, Verdasco's fohawk is the most amazing thing ever. And of course, Nadal is playing steadily and looks to be back on track. However, Federer or Murray are still going to be my top two picks to win this year's US Open.
