Worst crowd in all of US open. Blake was right

Blake "Its a testament to the best player ever that he was playing against more than 1 person, me and this crowd"

Federer: "You know its tough winning such a close match especially against a crowd like this"


This was an alltime low, it wasnt even this low in all the Agassi matches. Whenever federer was tossing the ball, the crowd would start shouting. I have an HDTV so I saw people taunting and ranting against Federer WHENEVER he won the point and Clapped whenever Federer lost a point.

They were probably even worse in 03 with Blake when Roger wasn't very well known. I am glad Roger won out in the end and this will make him tougher for finals with Andy.

And for a player who's GS success in eight seasons is two QF's at the US Open with easy ass draws.

Blake apologised to Roger for them.

He didn't seem too worried about it when they were doing their best to turn the match in James's favour any way they could. Not that he needed much help - ChockoFed was in the driving seat tonight.

I thought they were worse in 2004 when Roger played Andre over the course of 2 days because of the rain delay. Maybe it was because I was there it just sounded louder.

Re: Worst crowd in all of US open. Blake was right

This is surprising, is it?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Fed losing a point is the same as James winning a point. Why wouldn't they clap?
