Meant to post this early: On Wednesday Roger was given the US Open Sportsmanship Award by Todd Martin and the US Open Tennis Championships staff. :-)

Roger through to the semis after gaining a heart-thumping 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-2 victory over France’s, G. Monfils. Federer made over 40 unforced errors in the match, nearly enough to match his winners, was down 2 sets and yet defused 2 match points from Monfils. This spurred Roger on and drove him not only to win the set but the match. Fantastic stuff, this is what the history books are made of. Nothing was working today, not his serve, not the forehand and barely the backhand up until the end of the 4th set, when Roger really bit his teeth into the match and didn’t give up. Despite not playing 100%, Roger still found a way to win. And this is what makes great champions great.
Props also to Monfils for the exciting tennis; he really gave it his all.
