Murray Outlasts Djokovic for US Open Title

by Kenny Ducey

It took 4 hours and 53 minutes (tied for the longest final in history), but Andy Murray came away with his first grand slam, just months after taking Gold in London.

The match started off with a bang; Murray took the hour-and-28 minute first set in a gruesome 22-point tiebreaker on his sixth set point, thanks to some energy from the fans, and the inability for Djokovic to capitalize on errors. From there, things stayed intense.

While most of the country’s eyes were glued to opening day of football, it was just as monumental  a day for tennis.

Before the women’s match, Andre Agassi was inducted into the US Open Court of Champions. In Flushing, football became an afterthought.

The crowds at day ten of the U.S. Open saw Andy Roddick play his final match, a loss to 7th ranked Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina, (6-7, 7-6, 6-2, 6-4). Roddick only had 3 break opportunities after the first set and could not convert any of them. Despite being broken twice in the third set, Roddick continued to play hard. He served in 130MPH range at many points through out the match, and saved a match point on his serve.

Well, the effects of Hurricane Isaac were bound to travel up the east coast and ruin at least one day of the US Open. Viewers of day nine saw only two singles matches get completed because of the rain.
