Linespeople Await Serena Williams US Open Outburst Verdict
One person told me, “The Serena thing wouldn’t be an issue in the NBA or NFL. We know there’s a lot on the line for the players, but the behavior from some of them is really getting out of hand. Her mistake was that she was on TV.”

Juan Martin del Potro — The Future is Now
The script at this point read that Federer breaks serve early in the fourth set and wins the U.S. Open.

Another tiebreak was upon both players and del Potro took advantage of a Federer double fault to win again on a single mini-break. Despite saving a break point when serving at 2-0 in the fifth set, del Potro basically dominated the final frame of play.
