The Rodney Dangerfield of men’s tennis has struck again! Nikolay Davydenko, the 5′10” 154 pound middleweight mows down the field, dropping 1 set for the tournament, in a 3 hour + epic semi with the Djoker and then comfortably dispatched Rafa in the final, denying him of his first title since May- and its the second time he has beaten Rafa in a Masters Series final (Miami ‘08).

Two Absolutely Step up performances on the Asian Swing for the Men by Marion Cilic & Joe Willie Tsonga. Tsonga rolled countryman Gael Monfils in a surprisingly easy semifinal victory in Tokyo today. He’ll now play Michael Youzhny in the final. This is a huge opportunity for Tsonga to get some much needed points in his race to the year end Masters Championship in London. I feel like Tsonga should roll in this match tomorrow. He seems to thrive at the end of year as he did last year.

It has been an incredibly interesting month in the women’s game. The fairy tale win for Kim Clijsters at the US Open is in the books. I knew she was going to come good, but I never thought that much good would come that quick. Very admirable that she’s putting family first, with only one tournament on her itinerary for the fall schedule, I hope she keeps up her momentum and ends the year on a solid note.
