Here's a breakdown of the matches you can't miss on Day Matches to Watch Men Tomas Berdych 6 vs. Andy Murray 3 After watching Tomas Berdych defeat favorite Roger Federer in straight sets in the quarterfinals, it is fairly evident by now that he's riding a wave of momentum that could even threaten for the title.
Sure, Federer didn't look as good as he did in the first four rounds of the tournament, but, the fact of the matter is Berdych racked up 14 aces and committed just 21 unforced errors while averaging mph on his serve in the match, per USOpen.
Berdych was coming off a straight-set victory over No. Berdych notched 17 aces and 39 winners in that match, while committing just 16 unforced errors.
As for Andy Murray, he did what he was supposed to do against No. Then again, Murray stormed back after that, forcing a tie-breaker in the second set which he won before going on to win in four sets.
While Murray won the gold medal at the London Olympics this year and showed resiliency against Cilic, it's still hard for me to take him over Berdych this time around. Berdych has looked fantastic recently. I see Berdych emerging victorious in five sets.
David Ferrer 4 vs. Novak Djokovic 2 You have to admire what David Ferrer has done throughout his career. Like Murray, he's been a victim of one of the greatest eras in tennis history. Open twice , but has yet to capture a Grand Slam singles title.
Ferrer fought off a valiant Janko Tipsarevic in the quarterfinals. He lost a tie-breaker to the Serb in the second set then lost the third set, only to fight back and ultimately win the tie-breaker in the fifth set.
He racked up 15 aces and 49 winners in the match, as well as winning 75 percent of net points, per USOpen. But while Ferrer played a spectacular match, Novak Djokovic took the cake against Juan Martin del Potro, beating him in straight sets, , , Let me be clear: There was no way Djokovic was supposed to win the second set against Del Potro.
Del Potro played out of his mind in that set—it very well may have been the best set in the entire tournament. But Djokovic simply wouldn't lose, and when he won the second set, you knew Del Potro was done.
It was vintage Djokovic against Del Potro, the Djokovic who rattled off 41 straight wins in He won 69 percent of net points, while notching 43 winners, per USOpen.
More importantly, he buckled down the way we know he can, completely exasperating Del Potro. I would like to see Ferrer win his first Grand Slam singles title this year, but I think Djokovic takes this in four sets.
I actually wouldn't be surprised if he won in straight sets. Women Serena Williams 4 vs. Victoria Azarenka 1 Here we are, at the U. Open women's final, and it's no surprise to see Serena Williams and world No. Williams is since the French Open and she's won Wimbledon and a gold medal at the London Olympics in that span.
Williams also leads the women's side in aces 50 and first-serve points and ranks in the top six in second-serve points, first-serve return points, second-serve return points and break points.
That dominant enough for you? You add the fact that she hasn't lost a set all tournament and you get the idea. Azarenka is no pushover, of course.
She won her first career Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open at just 22 years of age and has a record with four singles titles this year.
Still, she's against Williams lifetime and she's lost their last seven head-to-head matchups. Given Williams is in prime form this tournament, I don't see this working out well for the young Belarusian.
Williams wins in straight sets, her dominant serve overcoming Azarenka's spectacular return game. Who do you think will win on Saturday? Tweet me.
