News and notes from the U.S. Open

Quick work


Just how dominant have the Williams sisters been so far? They have combined to spend a grand total of 8:36 on court — just 57 minutes more than Jelena Jankovic did in her four matches.

Also they have won 96 games and lost just 29. Other contenders Jankovic (38) and Safina (32) have lost that many by themselves.

I know this isn’t an original thought, but it’s such a shame that Venus and Serena have to play each other now. On the other hand, at least it gives everyone else a chance to get to the final.
