    2017 US Open

    I haven't bothered too much with this since Murray's not been involved but I genuinely can't believe that Kevin Anderson looks likely to appear in a Grand Slam final!

    It just goes to show just how many top players are not competing in this tournament. Prior to this year, he had only been past the last 16 at a Grand Slam once in his whole career.

    He currently leads Pablo Carreno Busta by two sets to one.

    Regardless of who wins this match, I can't see either of them beating Rafael Nadal or Juan Martin Del Potro in the final and I can't really see it being much of a contest if I'm honest.

    Rafa must win to maintain the status quo!

    Murray and Hingis through to the final.

    Martina is quietly racking up the slam titles.

    I think I read that she has so far won:

    Us open, Australian open and Wimbledon ladies
    A grand slam of doubles and a grand slam of mixed doubles.

    Seriously impressive.

    Another grand slam title in the mixed doubles for Murray and Hingis, nice one.

    Good opening to the final but it would appear that the match is following a very predictable path.

    Anderson was finally broken in his fourth service game and it's been all Nadal since.

    First set to Nadal 6-3.
