everyone has gone home except for Kuzny, Dementieva and JenJen.
I was certain that last year's US was Jen's swan song as far as slams went, and look what happens...at 28, and not in the best shape of her life, Jen suddenly finds herself staring at the one prize she has said throughout her career she always wanted.
I'm not her biggest fan, I'm the first one to admit it. And I think she knew the shot was out against Serena on Monday, and her lack of sprotsmanship prevented her from saying anything.
I think she has wasted a lot of gifts over the years.
And yet, having said all that, I want her to win this damn mess of a US Open.

She has much better skills than Dementieva. If she is careful about that weird 2nd serve, she should not have a problem getting to the finals. And Svetlana will be a tough match for her...but under the lights at the US Open, in the town of her birth, Jen has the chance to shine.

This is probably only the 2nd time I have rooted for her to win a tournament (the 1st being Australia against Hingis, who I disliked more than any player I can ever remember).

Having said all that - GO JEN.

Third set Dementieva/Capriati... One of the most exciting sets I've seen played! Man! What a hoot!

I've never been a fan of Jennifer's, but I guess because Lindsay out, I'm cheering for Capriati. There's a first time for everything.

Petrova's my new favorite Russian ... love the way that girl crashes the net!

I don't give a flip who's telling jokes.
