Serena Williams just won another major and I have to ask, who in the history of women’s tennis would be able to compete with her? She’s too strong and just too good.

Novak Djokovic has had the best tennis year ever. 64-2 record, three grand slam wins! It’s not the best record of all time, but it was done with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as competition… it doesn’t get any better than that!
Novak Djokovic versus Roger Feder is about as good as it gets. The best vs the best ever! The Jokerster is having one of the best seasons in sports history and is the No. 1 seed and No. 1 player in the world. Fed Babe is seeded third and is playing some of his best hard-court tennis in years. He’s rolled through his past two rounds and looks ready for a superstar semifinal matchup.

Donald Young is in the fourth round of the 2011 US Open… this is what I’ve been hoping for for about 5 years now! The 22-year old American was dubbed “The Future of US Tennis” back when he was the top junior player in the world. It didn’t happen. But he now is showing the results that his promising junior career had us hoping would be a constant.
The lefty is having by far his best showing in any of the majors.
