Sports - Tennis, US Open 2008

Andy Murray will face Roger Federer in the men's singles final. He upset Rafael Nadal 6-2, 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 6-4.  Andy Murray is seeking to be the first British man to win a major championship since Fred Perry in 1936. The last British man to reach a major final was Greg Rusedski in 1997 at the US Open. He lost to Pat Rafter in four sets.

In the women's singles final Serena Williams beat Jelena Jankovic 6-4, 7-5 and will  be the world number 1.  Looks like there may still be more events to come so she may not have ended the year as number 1 as previously written. Serena Williams was number 1 before in 2002.
