Day 9: Wo Pah

This is the sound Elena Dementieva makes as she rallies. "Wo" as she's starting her swing, "pah" as she makes contact. She is one of many notable grunters participating in this tourney. However, her grunt is now the grunt of a semifinalist, and that's nothing to scoff at.

I wonder if the grunters on tour are also loud in bed?

Who do you think has the most annoying grunts? I'll say Sharapova.

How about the strangest? I'll say Ferrer. What a psycho he is. I love the guy and I hope for him to get to a major final someday. He deserves it.

Okay okay, to the action.

Dementieva is through - our first US Open Semifinalist! She'll wait for the winner of the prime-time match between Jankovic and Bammer now. She'll go practice and yell "wopah" every time she blasts another helpless tennis ball.

Novak is ailing on Ashe as I write. But still he has found the strength to lead, 2 sets to 1. The winner of this match will face the winner of tonight's Roddick-Gonzo prime-time bout.

Here are my picks for tonight:

Jankovic in 3.

Roddick in 5 (only because he's in America).

Time to go hit a few myself, check you all later!
