    This women's final is getting REALLY interesting. Nice to see Serena being challenged by someone. Right now, they're even a set a piece and Azarenka just went up 5-3 in the 3rd set. Nice to see a match - especially a final - that is a little more even. I don't find 6-1, 6-2 all that interesting.

    Yep, Azarenka definitely didn't get the memo that Serena had this one in the bag

    The men's final is already pretty epic. First set tie break and neither of them have been able to close it out. Murray up yet another set point at 11-10..... Murray finally takes it!

    Sean Connery in the crowd cheering!

    I think if Novak had won the first set, it might have turned into a bloodbath, but now I think it's going to be a LONG match.

    ETA: Kevin Spacey in the crowd and the commentators make a Keyser Soze joke....and he laughs. He's got a radio tuned to them.

    All I can say is "Go Murray"!!! If he can pull this out, it is a well deserved win.

    He's up two sets, so he has a good chance! Of course, Nole isn't going to stop fighting, so it could turn around at any time. I have to leave in about 45 minutes and I know I probably won't see the end.

    I like both players, but it would be nice to see Murray win this one, especially after that heart-breaker at Wimbledon.

    Holy cow! I worked late and then went to my book club, and I still for home for the end of the match! Now I sure wish I got to see the rest of it
