Andy Murray Narrowly Escapes Upset
It took nearly four hours and included three tiebreaks but Murray held on to advance to face James Blake in the Round of 16.
Serena Williams Dominates Ekaterina Makarova
Williams lost to Makarova at the 2011 Australian Open but Williams got her revenge in this one. She’s been on a roll all year, playing some of her best tennis, including an impressive double-gold-medal performance at the 2012 Olympics.
Roger Federer Looked Like Roger Federer
This win, though, shouldn’t surprise anyone. Federer was tested by Verdasco but the Swiss tennis great has qualified for the Round of 16 in each of his last 34 Grand Slam appearances.
Federer will meet Mardy Fish in the next round as he continues on in hopes of earning his sixth U.S. Open championship.
