It eventually got really bad Peng. Apparently they are only supposed to receive treatment during changeovers. The trainer went over to talk to her, but they took Peng off the court for a 3 minute medical assessment and treatment mid-game. She can forfeit points until the changeover, but she'd lose the match.
Just watched the replay on Tennis Channel. The issue is that the rules for cramps are different from other injuries. Another injury, Peng was entitled to an injury timeout. Cramps, she wasn't, she could only be treated at the next changeover. For whatever reason, the officials gave her a medical timeout even though, to all appearances, she wasn't entitled to one. Wozniacki was justifiably snippy about it, but played the points pretty smartly when Peng tried to continue.

Federer will never get a better chance than this for #18.  He won't have to play anyone seeded higher than #10.

Looks like BigSoxFan will get his wish. Anyone else think Cilic looks like Patrice Bergeron?

Well, now he looks dead. He finally managed to break Cilic, but has been broken twice now this set himself. Too bad.

I guess good for Cilic to finally fulfill some of his potential after 6 wasted seasons.  
 
Disappointing to see Roger go away.He just had nothing left in the end.

Nishikori/Cilic beat five of the top six seeds themselves: Nishikori (#1 Djokovic, #3 Wawrinka, #5 Raonic), Cilic (#2 Federer, #6 Berdych), that is very impressive.

Lot of crazy stats flying around in the wake of those two upsets, my favorite is that was the first time that Djokovic EVER lost to someone younger than him at any of the four majors.

Bryan brothers win the men's doubles, their 5th US Open title and 16th Grand Slam. It also means their streak of winning at least one Grand Slam each calendar year is now at ten years.

Cilic dominating again. His serve and return games are incredible.

Also, not a bad looking girlfriend...
