- Vera Zvonareva defeated Kim Clijsters to advance to the women’s semifinals.
- The surprise women’s semifinal matchups have been set: Serena Williams (1) vs. Petra Kvitova and Vera Zvonareva (21) vs. Tsvetana Pironkova. (Do any of these women have a prayer of beating Serena??)
- Bob and Mike Bryan are one step closer to breaking the record for most-ever doubles wins by advancing to the quarterfinals.
- Matt Harvey’s latest poem, “McEnroe,” is about guess who. (And if you think it’s about Patrick, then you cannot be serious.)
