Stop ignoring science. 25 seconds are at least twice less than 30 years ago! The Earth rotates quicker around the Sun now, and time shrinks. So does distance btw but people notice that less because they explain it by modern technology.
No real surprise in terms of the result. I was surprised, however, that just like the Young match, the Tennis Channel didn't show one damn minute of this contest. Those saying that America is the most nationalistic of the four Grand Slam countries (I'd say it is the least, fwiw) might be surprised to hear that they showed Del Potro-Ljubicic over Young-Murray yesterday, and Clijsters-Errani over Harrison-GGL today.
