2010 US Open: day 7 recap

Upset of the day: Stanislas Wawrinka defeats Andy Murray
Wawrinka pulled out the biggest upset of this year’s US Open so far: he bounced 2008 US Open runner-up in 4 sets. Murray still can’t win when it really counts.

Match of the day: Sam Stosur defeats Elena Dementieva
Without a doubt one of the best matches of the tournament so far. They battled until 1:37 am, they both had match points, but in the end, the Australian prevailed 6-3 2-6 7-6.

Quote of the day: Tracy Austin about Sam Stosur and Elena Dementieva:

I think they’re hitting harder than the guys in the first match.

US player of the day: Venus Williams
Venus beat 7-6 (7-3), 6-3 and qualified for her 10th US Open quarterfinal (in 12 trips to Flushing Meadows). Her next opponent: 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone.

Stat of the day: 1
There will be at least one spanish player in semifinals as only Spaniards remain in the top quarter of the men’s singles draw: Rafael Nadal, Feliciano Lopez, David Ferrer and Fernando Verdasco. Tommy Robredo and Albert Montanes also qualified for fourth round.

Pic of the day: Kim Clijsters
Just impressive: Kim won her 18th straight match at the US Open Sunday, defeating Ana Ivanovic, 6-2, 6-1, to advance to the quarterfinals. Ivanovic never looked like a former number one and was completely outplayed.
