Too bad that such a boo trophy followed a memorable and exciting three-set match between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer at the Rogers Cup. The Serb won 7-6 (2), 2-6, 7-6 (2). And in a classy move that disappointed half the free world, the adidas kit stayed on after his win. Is shirtless Novak not a winning tradition?
Meanwhile, the East West Bank Classic handed out a crystal vase to Ana Ivanovic for beating Russian Nadia Petrova 7-5, 6-4. Congrats to Nadia for recovering strongly from the shoulder injury that kept her out of Wimbledon.
If this is what the U.S. Open Series will do until the Open, I will claw my eyes out. Give us some fun trophies!
