Defending champion Roger Federer advanced to his fifth consecutive US Open final with a 6-3, 5-7, 7-5, 6-2 drubbing of Novak Djokovic in today's only completed semifinal.
May as well give him the trophy, his 13th Slam title, now. He gets a day of rest while Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray have to come back tomorrow to finish their match, weather permitting. (Andy is up two sets, but down a break in the third.)
I've seen this movie before (Wimbledon 2005) and I know how it ends.
Of course, if Andy comes out and wins 4 games in a row...
