Possibly not as banjaxed though. These two guys are relentless. They must be a nightmare to play.

Aye but if they also go deep into a fifth that's played tomorrow. I suspect as well that it would have to be played after the women's final rather than before, so they could be playing quite late tomorrow afternoon/evening.

Then again, Anderson now has two insanely long five setters in his legs in three days.

Oh didn't realise it could be played after. Might increase tiredness.

I rarely watch tennis but these two guys are phenomenal- great to watch. I think djokovic maybe will have a bit more in the end.

I'm not sure but I'd imagine that as there's all the pomp and ceremony of a final, royal visits etc, the start time of the women's would be set in stone. Don't know if it could be moved to Court 1 either.

Is there any chance that these tennis players are not on PEDs?

God no. Brilliant stuff to watch though.

They've just said that they'll have the choice to play either before or after the women's.

Players choice whether before or after apparently....

Interesting point on 5th set should go to tie break at 12 each in a grand slam. Makes sense.

They're still going. Brilliant stuff altogether. Maybe Anderson will end up being the least tired tomorrow.

Havenít seen it properly but was Serena Williams badly done there getting docked a a game?

Her interview after was very good and her words for Osaka but it seems very harsh.

Not a good US Open for the officials!!

Tennis needs to stamp this shit out. No matter if the official was right or wrong her reaction deserves serious punnishment but nothing will happen. Can you imagine any other sport allowing such a show - its embarrassing. Kyrgios is another one who takes the absolute piss. Need lengthy bans when they start behaving like muppets.

Was she f**k badly done. Called the umpire a liar, a thief and threatened his career. Pulled the line about being a mother. Pulled the line about bring a woman. She has form for that sort of thing too.

It was, correctly, her third code violation of the evening. She was warned, then had a point deduction, then had a game docked.

The worst bit of it all was that Osaka was brilliant and we cruising to the win. Serena completely ruined it on her.
