US OPEN COVERAGE
Novak Djokovic defeated David Ferrer to reach the US Open Final where he’ll face Andy Murray.
Andy Murray persevered through the wind and the rain to advance to his US Open Final since 2008.
Normally so good, so gritty, in the crucible of the third set, Maria Sharapova finally met her match against Victoria Azarenka.
Yes, the ingredients are in place for the torch to finally be passed — at least for the moment — to a new men’s Grand Slam champion. And if it does play out that way, what will it feel like? It’s tough to say, as there has only been one blip on the Big Three’s radar since 2005.
Locked in a taut, thrill-a-minute second set, Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro headed to a tiebreaker and promptly produced a 20-stroke masterpiece of a point befitting a pair of past U.S. Open champions.
Physically, Roger Federer looks great. Mentally? It would be fascinating to get into his head to see how Andy Roddick’s retirement affected him.

Mentally, I don’t think that there is any player in the women’s game that is tougher than Maria Sharapova. The 25-year-old showed yet again what she is made of, rallying back from a set down to beat a much-improved Marion Bartoli.
His match, and his retirement, put off for at least another day, Andy Roddick stepped out of Arthur Ashe Stadium and into the drizzly night, a black jacket’s hood pulled overhead, a bag of ice soothing his right shoulder.
