The Final Four!!

2010 U.S. Open


The men's semifinals are all set!

It'll be:

No. 1 Rafael Nadal vs. No. 12 Mikhail Youzhny

and--

No. 2 Roger Federer vs. No. 3 Novak Djokovic

Nadal has steamrolled into the semis and is looking mighty good in his quest for the elusive U.S. Open title. Youzhny ended No. 25 Stanislas Wawrinka's Cinderella run in the quarterfinals and has reach his second U.S. Open Semifinals.

Incidentally, the last time Youzhny reach the semis was in 2006 and that year he beat none other than Nadal in the quarterfinals. But this is a different Rafa and Youzhny definitely has a gigantic task awaiting him.

As for Federer and Djokovic, they are exactly where everyone expected them to be, No. 2 vs. No. 3.

And so we are one step away from the dream final we've all been waiting for: No. 1 Nadal vs. No. 2 Federer. Many are saying it'll be the biggest match in tennis history if it materializes.

Nadal and Federer on U.S. soil for all the marbles.

No doubt this is going to be huge.

BUT--

Youzhny and Djokovic may have other ideas.

Can't wait!
